Facilitating mobile connectivity in challenge areas

30 January 2018

A joint report by BEREC (Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications) and the RSPG (Radio Spectrum Policy Group) has been published which look at the obstacles to providing mobile connectivity in ‘challenge areas’ and presents some possible solutions.

The report describes four categories of challenge areas: indoor; transportation; non-profitable areas; and other areas such as protected areas, “grey” areas and low quality of service areas. The report presents various solutions such as developing network sharing, installing repeaters, Wi-Fi or imposing coverage obligations, depending on the issue at stake. 

The EU’s goal for 2020 is to ensure that all Europeans should have access to Internet speeds above 30 Mbit/s and at least 50% or more of European households subscribed to internet access above 100 Mbit/s.
