BCC comments on the Government’s £1 billion Shared Rural Network

10th March 2020

Welcoming the Government’s announcement today of a £1 billion agreement to take 4G coverage to 95 per cent of the UK landmass by the end of 2025, BCC Director General Dr Adam Marshall said:

“This is a major win for our Chamber ‘No More Not Spots' campaign, which has worked across the UK to identify and fix the mobile ‘not spots’ holding back businesses in so many parts of the country.

“Access to mobile voice and data services is a basic requirement of business today, and it is essential to consumers and for linking people and communities.

“Today’s announcement is a long-overdue step in the right direction, and Chambers will continue to work with operators and government during the rollout to ensure that the new Shared Rural Network gives our local communities and businesses the mobile coverage they need.”
