Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review: Call for Evidence

The Joint Radio Company (JRC) welcomes the opportunity to respond to this call for views and in particular we support the approach from Government to consider alternative market frameworks when seeking to establish the market for ‘future new digital infrastructure.’ Moreover, future Industrial Developments will be predicated on the establishment of next generation digital communications infrastructure that will enable initiatives such as ‘Smart Grid.’ Noting that ‘Smart Grid’ is central to establishing the UK’s ‘Low Carbon Economy’ then we encourage DCMS to ensure alignment between the Policy framework designed to facilitate the new digital communications infrastructure and broader Policy interventions across Government.
