Broadband and the road to 5G

Inquiry

MPs launch an inquiry into Broadband and road to 5G to examine Government’s pledge to ensure every home and business in the UK has gigabit-capable broadband by 2025.

The inquiry will focus on how realistic the ambition is, what is needed to achieve it, and what the Government’s target will mean for businesses and consumers. It will also look at what role 5G technology might play, and what initiatives such as the Shared Rural Network mean for improving mobile connectivity across the UK.

The inquiry will also consider the impact of Covid-19 on the roll-out of full-fibre and 5G infrastructure.

For further information please see the Terms of Reference.
