CommScope comments on today’s Budget

Phil Sorsky, international VP of service providers at global telecoms infrastructure provider, CommScope, said:

“While the 5G roll-out will of course be important – and we all understand the need for continued investment – there is still work to do to tackle coverage ‘black spots’. These won’t be addressed by 5G for several years after its launch, therefore these needs are likely to be met by LTE-A and LTE-Pro coverage for the foreseeable future.

“That said, we of course support any government’s investment in fibre connectivity. Access to fibre will become a key component for businesses across the UK, particularly in the run up-to Brexit, with companies even more under pressure to deliver on a global scale. With that in mind, it is critical that everyone across the country has the same access to the opportunities enabled by connectivity.”
