Digital Economy Bill passed

28 April 2017

In one of the last pieces of legislation passed by this Parliament, the Digital Economy Bill (DEB) received Royal Assent on Thursday 27th April. This DEB contains a number of reforms that the Panel have been supportive of, including the broadband USO, which will give consumers a guaranteed universal right to a decent broadband connection; a provision to ensure that on-demand television is accessible to people with disabilities; plus mobile bill capping, enabling consumers to request a limit on their mobile phone spend, and help them control their costs.
