star this property answer text <p>The pace of delivery of the Superfast Broadband Programme has accelerated substantially across the UK over recent months, resulting with on average 40,000 premises per week now able to access superfast broadband . All 44 Phase 1 local projects are delivering superfast broadband to homes and businesses. In August the programme had reached 1 million premises, and by February 2015 we will have reached 2 million homes and businesses. The second phase to extend coverage to 95% of UK premises by 2017 is in procurement and aims to have all contracts signed by early 2015.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>My Right Hon. Friend the Secretary of State has not undertaken any specific assessment of the Scandinavian model for providing mobile services but as part of its long-term economic plan, Government it is working with industry to ensure that the UK has a vibrant digital economy. We are investing up to £150 million to improve mobile coverage in areas where there is currently no coverage from any of the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) through the Mobile Infrastructure Project. Additionally, we are currently consulting on proposals to improve mobile phone coverage in areas where there is a signal from one or more of the UK network operators, but not all four. The consultation closes on 26 November and is available on the GOV.UK website: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/tackling-partial-not-spots-in-mobile-phone-coverage" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/tackling-partial-not-spots-in-mobile-phone-coverage</a></p><p> </p><p>All four MNOs are also rolling out 4G mobile services that will provide faster mobile broadband. This rollout is expected to be the quickest in Europe and should deliver excellent coverage both indoors and outdoors. As a condition of the 4G spectrum they acquired by auction in 2013, O2 has an obligation to provide indoor 4G coverage to at least 98% of the UK population (and at least 95% of the population of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) by the end of 2017. The other three MNOs have publically committed to matching this coverage by the end of 2015. This will help ensure UK consumers continue to benefit from excellent mobile services at competitive rates.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed the delivery of superfast broadband throughout the UK. We have allocated funding to projects areas to deliver superfast broadband to 95% of UK premises, for which Oxfordshire was allocated £6.21m and North Yorkshire was allocated £25.16m from central sources. Oxfordshire is anticipated to achieve 94% superfast broadband coverage and North Yorkshire, 92% superfast broadband coverage. In addition, the projects areas will benefit from delivery of the universal standard broadband and the Government is currently piloting alternative solutions with the aim of extending superfast coverage beyond 95%.</p><p> </p><p>The UK Government also recognises the value of mobile phone coverage in rural areas. Improving coverage is part of the Government’s wider digital inclusion agenda and investment in infrastructure for the long term economic plan. The Government’s Mobile Infrastructure Project is providing up to £150 million to improve mobile coverage in areas where there is currently no coverage from any of the MNOs and where it has not proved economical for the private sector to build infrastructure or extend their networks.</p>

The second looked at reform or replacement of the Levy and received 100 responses.</p><p>As a result of our analysis of the responses to the two consultations it is clear that more detail is required as to how a replacement for the Levy would work in order to enable a full comparison between reform and replacement to be made.</p><p>Therefore, as announced in the Autumn Statement, we will consult, early in 2015, on a Racing Right and intend to announce a decision in the light of all three consultations.</p> more like this
