As stated in MQ 3993, work to improve London's connectivity is continuing through the Superconnected Cities Programme and the Connectivity Advisory Group (CAG). There are a number of recommendations from the Mayor's Connectivity Summit in September which the CAG will take forward, which, when implemented, will significantly improve connectivity across London.  These recommendations include actions for providers, regulators and boroughs, and they will be discussed in more detail when the CAG meets on 9th December 2014.
