Telecoms regulator Ofcom has launched a new consultation on its plans for the coming year, which highlight what some of its top priorities will be in the months ahead.

For its 2019/20 plan, the organisation will be placing a strong focusing on improving the broadband speeds that are available throughout the UK.

As well as moving ahead with the Universal Service Obligation, which should ensure every property is able to request a minimum download speed of 10Mbps,

Ofcom will also seek to promote greater investment in fibre connectivity.

The regulator will publish a statement in the second quarter of the year that will assess the current state of these developments and outline plans for ensuring that broadband providers will be able to access such services.

"We will ensure the universality of broadband services by designating broadband universal service providers and setting out the conditions that will apply to them," Ofcom continued. "This will help those who cannot currently get decent broadband."
