The Internet is economically vital and a must-have fourth utility for most households. Demand is escalating and to stay ahead we must rethink how the limited spectrum is allocated as I argue today in Computer Weekly.
We must make sure that the UK telecommunications network – that carries all these digital signals – has a sustainable future. As demand for these services expand, the network must be able to handle this increase in traffic. That’s why I’m calling on the Government to release an extra 650MHz of spectrum to private businesses from the public sector.
