The Government have put in place an opt for a more faster, more reliable and more affordable future via the replacement of copper to fibre wires. The strategy off the government seeks to recognise both the urban and the rural areas of the country in order to promote competition and commercial investment to ensure accessibility to the global, competitive, digital world.
The switchover regarding the end of copper aims for the large scale commercial investors to remain competitive in the vital networks which contrasts the country's current position of only being 4% full fibre in comparison to competitors such as Portugal (89%) and Spain (79%).
The FTIR (Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review) announced that ''15 million premises are to be attached to full fibre net works by 2025''.
Likewise, ''full fibre broadband coverage across the whole of the UK by 2033''. The FTIR go on to stress the 'full fibre infrastructure is vital to underpin 5G coverage''.
Similarly, Jeremy Wright (DCMS Secretary of State) supports the idea of full fibre as he stated:
''We want everyone in the UK to benefit from world class connectivity, no matter where they live, work or travel. This radical new blueprint for the future of telecommunications in this country will increase competition and investment in full fibre broadband, create more commercial opportunities and make it easier and cheaper to roll out infrastructure for 5G.''
Additionally, Sharon White, Ofcom executive also said:
''The Government and Ofcom are working together, and with industry, to help ensure people and business get the broadband and mobile they need for the 21st Century''.
