The UK’s remote rural communities do not have the broadband access they need to fully participate in a digital society, a Shared Rural Network could extend coverage to many underserved UK communities.
Pooling spectrum by MNOs on rural sites increases the overall capacity that customers can tap into – opening up the prospect of fixed-wireless services, boosted by rooftop antennae. Sharing spectrum and physical masts forces sharing of everything else i.e. antennas, radios, baseband electronics, and backhaul, allowing MNOs to greatly reduce infrastructure and operational costs
In this insight guide we explore why it makes sense to create a true SRN, based on pooling spectrum in the 9% of the UK geography without mobile coverage.
