Government plans to unlock mobile broadband


by David Allen

The government is looking into ways that the next generation mobile broadband network could be deployed quickly and easily.

It is considering two ways of doing this.

The first would replicate how the industry rolled out earlier versions of its networks.

However, as with fixed line broadband providers, mobile providers have concentrated on upgrading the populated areas rather than rural areas.

The second proposal would involve the early release of the 800 MHz spectrum and the extension bands of 3G at 2.6 GHz.

This is currently being held up by the regulator Ofcom.

However, the government could be thinking about making it an obligation for mobile broadband providers to provide services to every part of the country, in the same way that it now requires fixed broadband services to be available.
