Ofcom Connected Nations (previously called Infrastructure Report) - UK internet speeds and coverage: broadband, wifi and mobile

Ofcom's annual reports on the UK’s fixed broadband coverage, mobile and wifi network coverage, digital television, digital radio and internet infrastructure. Please see our terms of use for our licence conditions, and please refer to the Ofcom website to see the pdf 'About this data' documents.

High quality, widespread communications, fixed and mobile, are an engine of our economy and the pulse of our society. They are not nice-to-haves, but essential enablers of our working and social lives. As businesses and consumers drive an ever-increasing demand for communications, the infrastructure that serves them must keep pace with their demands and needs.

One of Ofcom’s roles is to make sure that the UK has the communications infrastructure it requires. This means making services available where people live and work; call connections being clear and robust; and data being down- and up-loaded at speeds that deliver a good experience. Ofcom is also responsible for providing clear, accurate, easy-to-use information. This equips businesses and consumers to make informed decisions about the services that can serve them best.

The Connected Nations Report (previously called the Infrastructure Report) charts the UK’s evolving communications infrastructure, and our progress towards becoming genuinely connected nations.

Where we can, we have made the data underlying the 2018 report available for download. Please see our terms of use for our licence conditions. If you have any questions or feedback on the data we have made available, please contact us at open.data@ofcom.org.uk.
The 2019 Media Nations data can be found on the Ofcom website in an interactive format.
