Sadiq Khan announces plans to deal with “Not-Spots”

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan announced plans to help improve connectivity across London. One plan involves the creation of a “Not-Spot team” that will specifically target areas in London with low connectivity.

 

Another initiative entails encouraging local authorities to apply for the Government’s Digital Infrastructure Fund, which was set up to aid investment in full-fibre rollout. Relatedly, the announcement also encourages them to convene a Digital Connectivity Funding Forum that will support them in the application process and provide them with an avenue to share ideas on connectivity.

 

The plans will also highlight the role that Transport for London (TfL) has in bringing mobile connectivity to London Underground tunnels.
