ISPA welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Call for Evidence on Extending Local Full Fibre Broadband Networks and we see this response as complementary to the individual responses and evidence that several of our members will submit separately.

We support the Government’s commitment to assisting ISPs in the UK in their already strong, market-driven efforts to rollout fibre networks and note that the Government continues to recognise value of other technologies including wireless that will help connect customers wherever they are. As an association that represents providers that deliver connectivity over fibre, copper, wireless, mobile spectrum and satellite, we believe that all these technologies can play a role in ensuring that businesses and consumers across the UK are provided with the connectivity they require cost effectively.
