High performance wireless broadband

mobile broadband

Plum was commissioned jointly by UKWISPA and INCA to conduct an independent and updated assessment of the potential benefits of fixed wireless access (FWA) technologies, for provision of broadband services in the UK market.

Our focus has been directed towards review of the performance levels available with modern commercially available FWA solutions. Within the study, we have reviewed developing UK Government policy and Ofcom positioning – with a view to considering options and implications for ongoing roll-out of broadband services.

In assessing FWA, we have given careful consideration to an appropriate counterfactual. Whilst we have considered other options, our analysis is focused principally on a comparison of FWA with fibre-to-the-cabinet – FTTC technology.

We find that: with appropriate Government support, FWA solutions can play an important part in enabling UK success and leadership in widespread access.
