Our market


Fixed and mobile telecommunications infrastructure requires a total outsourced spend of more than £4bn p.a. with service companies to build, install, maintain, manage and support networks.

Ofcom is the communications regulator in the UK regulating the TV, radio and video-on-demand sectors, fixed-line telecom (phones), mobiles and postal services, plus the airwaves over which wireless devices operate.

Accountable to Parliament, they set and enforce regulatory rules for the sectors for which we have responsibility. They also have powers to enforce competition law in those sectors, alongside the Competition and Markets Authority.
