Digital communications

Digital infrastructure (including cable and mobile communications) is a rapidly evolving sector, with intense technological innovation and faster asset replacement rates that the other sectors we have studied. Digital communication is also fundamental to how infrastructure will be used and operated in future.

As a result, our analysis of digital infrastructure did not look as far into the future as for other sectors. We have analysed the rate of roll-out of digital infrastructure, at different speeds of connectivity, across Britain and the factors determine who gets what services.
