Extending Local Full Fibre Networks

INCA has responded to the DCMS Consultation on Extending Local Full Fibre Networks.

Rather than going over ground that our members have highlighted in their responses, or re-iterating the points made in our report Building Gigabit Britain, we have instead focused on some general points about how different approaches can deliver excellent results in terms of coverage - with examples from the UK and overseas. We also emphasise that full fibre does not just mean fibre to the premises, it also means fibre to the wireless network. The new Government policy is to support the deployment of Full Fibre and 5G networks. We think it important that providers of both fibre and wireless networks can benefit from new policy and funding approaches.
