In this approach all new residential and business developments would plan for the provision of fixed and mobile technology from the outset.
Full fibre broadband connectivity should be provided, with full ducting for use of fibre cabling to be designed and laid out during the construction of development.
Alongside any other supporting infrastructure, this should also provide and support roll out of 5G mobile technology throughout the development.
Infrastructure providers should ensure works are effectively co-ordinated with other parties, including the Highway Authority.
