DCMS public consultation on the Statement of Strategic Priorities

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is currently seeking views on its proposed Statement of Strategic Priorities for telecommunications, the management of radio spectrum and post.

The consultation published on 15 February will help provide Ofcom with context and guidance about the Government’s policy priorities and outcomes relating to world class digital infrastructure, the management of radio spectrum and a universal postal service. Ofcom must respect the strategic priorities when exercising its regulatory functions in these areas.  

The Government has identified the following strategic priority areas to be covered by the Statement of Strategic Priorities (SSP):

Section 1: World-class digital infrastructure
The Government’s commitment to world-class digital infrastructure for the UK, reflecting the conclusions of the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review (FTIR).

Section 2: Furthering the interests of telecoms consumers
The Government’s commitment to safeguarding the interests of telecoms consumers, including the vulnerable and less engaged, by ensuring they are better informed and protected.

Section 3: Secure and resilient telecoms infrastructure
The Government’s commitment to ensuring the UK’s telecoms networks and services are secure and resilient.

Section 4: Postal services
The Government’s commitment to a universal postal service and need for industry and Ofcom to work together to secure the long-term sustainability of the sector.

Responses to this public consultation must be sent by Wednesday 27 March 2019 to sspconsultation@culture.gov.uk
