Welcome to 2022's first issue of Connected magazine.

We have started the New Year in full swing and are looking forward to another year of working with you to keep the UK connected. We are delighted to see the progress made to date on the roll out of 5G throughout the UK. The new 5G networks are helping us to improve connectivity and coverage, giving us benefits from faster and advanced services online. Thank you to all our landlords who have been part of our journey so far in deploying our next generation mobile technology. We are also continuing to support the Shared Rural Network programme, which aims to bring mobile broadband to rural communities and provides coverage to an additional 280,000 premises, and for people in cars, an additional 16,000 km of the UK’s roads.
