BCC comments on latest Ofcom plans to reform the digital communications market

29th November 2016

Commenting on Ofcom's update on plans to reform the digital communications market, Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, said: -Businesses and consumers need the best possible digital connections to drive the economy.

Yet levels of dissatisfaction with broadband remain high in business communities, despite efforts to extend networks in recent years. -For business, the priority is delivery of the level of digital connectivity they've long been promised. The litmus test for any change to the ownership structure of the UK's broadband backbone is whether it delivers the connectivity that businesses require in order to reach their potential.
