Consultation description

This consultation is collecting evidence and views to develop a new Digital Communications Infrastructure Strategy. This Strategy will look at what digital communications infrastructure is needed in the UK over the next 10-15 years to maintain our position as a world class digital nation. The Strategy will also consider what needs to be done by Government, industry and others to put this digital communications infrastructure in place.

The consultation document is not a draft strategy and does not present specific policy proposals. Instead we want you to send us views on:

  • The role of Government;
  • Scenarios of possible future user demand and technological developments;
  • How the regulatory framework could change to maintain competition and to facilitate provision of infrastructure to meet demand;
  • The scale of private investment required, and by when and by whom.

The consultation proposes that Government, industry, the regulator and users will need to share responsibility for meeting these challenges. The consultation also asks what action may be needed from each to provide digital communications infrastructure fit for a leading digital economy.

The Government plans to publish responses received from organisations to this consultation on after the consultation period has closed.
