Speed Up Britain.
The Electronic Communications Code (ECC) legislation was updated in December 2017 to enable quicker and more cost-effective installation of mobile infrastructure across the UK.
To further support the ECC, Speed Up Britain is an industry-wide campaign, launched in July 2020 by organisations committed to delivering mobile infrastructure, to work together with the Government to address some of the loopholes within the legislation. The campaign's objective is to ensure that industry can continue to meet connectivity demands now and build network resilience for the future.
“Our campaign will work to ensure that our country is equipped to fulfil its digital and economic ambitions, and I invite the wider industry to support this mission.”
Chair of Speed Up Britain.
Former Secretary of State for Trade and Industry Patricia Hewitt has been appointed as the new Chair of Speed Up Britain, following the appointment of Lord Vaizey of Didcot to the House of Lords. Speed Up Britain is backed by Cornerstone and other industry organisations.
