Answer for Connectivity Ratings Scheme (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Building owners are not obliged to continue using the ratings scheme service or display the rating if they choose not to, but WiredScore, the company running the scheme, will offer advice and guidance about how to improve connectivity levels and thus increase the rating score if the building owner wishes.

The incentive to participate will come from consumer pressure and expectations.
