Mobile UK

“The insight BCC gathered on business experience of mobile connectivity during lockdown was fundamental to the development of our policy and stakeholders strategy during the pandemic. The partnership secured strong coverage in our target outlets which has been to key to supporting our objectives.”

During 2020 BCC and Mobile UK have worked in partnership on an initiative to  underline the importance of mobile coverage for firms throughout and beyond lockdown to maintain or restart their operations - and why the government should accelerate solutions to improve poor connectivity across the UK.  

Impact
