UK telecoms regulator Ofcom has just published its Connected Nations report, which shows how the UK’s communications infrastructure has changed in the past 12 months.
It notes that the roll-out of 4G coverage means that 67% of premises in the UK can now get 4G service from three of the ‘big four’ operators. That compares with 37% in 2014.
Vodafone UK has confirmed that some of its customers were targeted by hackers last week.
However, it says its own systems were not compromised or breached in any way.
UK communications regulator Ofcom has decided that the annual mobile fees for mobile operators will treble, following a government direction that the fees should reflect ‘full market value’.
Ofcom has concluded that mobile operators should pay a combined annual total of £199.6m per year for the 900MHz and 1800MHz spectrum bands.
