Ofcom has launched a new interactive map allowing UK consumers to check their local broadband, mobile, TV and radio coverage.

The online tool is designed to show the quality of the communications infrastructure in areas where people live and work.

Users can zoom to a specific location on a UK map, or enter a place name or postcode.

The Ofcom Interactive Map offers comprehensive data on fixed broadband coverage, average download and upload speeds, and the availability of super-fast services in the chosen area.

It also highlights average 2G, 3G and 4G coverage, and offers information on Freeview and digital radio services.

Ed Richards, Chief Executive at Ofcom, said the tool is "a simple way" for people to check coverage for a range of services that are increasingly important in their lives.

"The way consumers interact with their TV, phone and broadband is changing as fast as technology is evolving," he noted.

"Our challenge is to keep supporting competition and innovation, while also helping to improve coverage across the country - particularly in hard-to-reach areas where mobile and home internet services need to improve."
