Connected Nations and Digital Exclusion

Source: Ofcom & Insight, Coventry City Council

We have developed a dashboard presenting all of the rich Ofcom Connected Nations 2021 data.

Ofcom, the telecoms regulator, publishes annual reports measuring the performance of, and access to, fixed broadband and mobile services across the UK. As of January, Coventry is the top-ranked local authority in the West Midlands region, and joint 2nd for all the UK, for gigabit broadband coverage with 94.8% of residential premises covered. 91.9% are also covered by Full-Fibre. Across the UK, 66% of homes can receive gigabit and 33% of homes Full-Fibre.

Furthermore, 99.5% of residential premises have access to decent fixed broadband - defined by the UK government as a data service that provides fixed download speeds of at least 10Mbit/s and upload speeds of at least 1Mbit/s. Decent broadband can also be accessed through the mobile network using 4G services. As of January, 86.06% of all premises have a reliable signal for 4G services while indoors from all four network operators (EE, O2, Three & Vodafone).

There is no single measure of digital exclusion, however it is possible to measure the risk, or likelihood, of digital exclusion by monitoring the key barriers to inclusion: access, skills, confidence, and motivation. Mapping data on digital engagement, demography, deprivation, qualifications, and digital attitudes from a variety of sources has identified areas of Coventry which are likely to be digitally excluded now or in the future. As the number of essential services, retail and financial offerings, and employment opportunities become increasingly available, sometimes solely, through the internet, it is vital to help those in these areas – who are likely already at a disadvantage through age, income disability or unemployment – to continue to access the services they need and benefit from available digital services.
