Response to DCMS Consultation on broadband Universal Service Obligation

VLV welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Government's consultation on its proposed approach to introducing a new broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO).

VLV’s primary concern is that public service broadcasting content should be available universally to the UK population. Therefore, we make this submission on understanding that until superfast broadband delivery is guaranteed for every home in the UK and considered robust enough to be able to provide content to the whole population simultaneously, it should remain a priority for Government to ensure that the technology and spectrum required to provide content on free to air television and radio platforms should be guaranteed.
