DSIT response to NAO report

22 February 2024: The National Audit Office (NAO) has today published a report titled Supporting mobile connectivity. which examines whether DSIT is on track to deliver UK-wide reliable mobile connectivity that meets the country’s needs now and in the future. In response to the report, a DSIT spokesperson said:

“This is premature. The programme remains on track to deliver 95% UK 4G coverage by the end of 2025, with coverage already available across 93% of UK landmass.

“We will continue to work with mobile network operators to ensure the programme is delivered on time and that the crucial coverage improvements are delivered across rural parts of the country.”
