ISPA supports government ambition for world class connectivity – addressing barriers to rollout should be the no 1 priority

Following the publication of today’s DCMS Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review, please find below a statement from the Internet Services Providers’ Association.

ISPA shares the Government’s ambition, set out in the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review, to deliver world class digital infrastructure maintaining the UK’s position as a leading digital economy.

Rollout is market driven and ISPA members are at the forefront of rolling out gigabit capable infrastructure and services across the country, from established players to alt nets, with significant investment planned and underway. A clear and stable strategy from Government that provides regulatory certainty, incentivises investment and allows for competition and innovation will help industry deliver the digital infrastructure required.

We particularly welcome commitment to remove barriers to rollout, the single most important lever policymakers can use to accelerate the rollout of networks. ISPA has been working closely with the Barrier Busting Task Force within DCMS regarding these proposals and look forward to further engaging in the consultation phase.

Andrew Glover, Chair of ISPA said:

“The broadband sector is at an exciting intersection and ready to be propelled into the next full fibre phase of its development. It will be crucial for industry to work collaboratively and in close consultation with Government and Ofcom to further identify how the sector can be best stimulated to deliver the future-proof infrastructure the country needs. We particularly look forward to working further with Government to remove barriers to broadband rollout, the single most important lever policymakers can use to accelerate the rollout of infrastructure”.
