Per licence obligations, MNOs submitted their initial radio plans to Ofcom. These plans will be subject to change as more work is undertaken to assess the feasibility of sites.
Following agreement of initial radio plans
Each MNO will start their Partial Not Spot (PNS) roll out. This refers to areas where one or more but not all mobile operators currently provide 4G coverage.
Following State Aid approval
Total Not Spot (TNS) site acquisition begins. This refers to the areas with no 4G coverage from any mobile operator and is the element of the programme that is publicly funded.
