Answered By: 
The Mayor

Analysys Mason were commissioned to undertake a report for the Mayor on the state of London's connectivity. This report included an analysis of Ofcom's data on superfast availability and an assessment of the issues causing areas of low connectivity.

Analysys Mason made a number of recommendations for local authorities, landlord and developers, investors, and the telecoms industry, to inform the discussions of the Connectivity Summit, and the work of the Connectivity Advisory Group.

The Connectivity Advisory Group discussed these recommendations, which clarified my role in improving connectivity which City Hall will developing and be taking forward.
