Ofcom CEO: Total UK 4G could still cost millions

Ofcom CEO Sharon White has suggested the total cost of delivering adequate 4G coverage to the entirety of the UK landmass could cost as much as £6 billion.

Speaking at Connected Britain in London, White said she was pleased with the progress in eliminating connectivity ‘notspots’ – both fixed and mobile – noting the improvements in coverage and speed since she assumed her role in 2015.

But she also pledged to do more to close the gap, acknowledging the increasing role of connectivity in everyday life, education and business.
