The Connectivity Ratings Scheme is for property owners and managers to get their buildings rated and promoted for their connectivity levels. This assists consumers in finding appropriate premises, and encouraging developers and property owners to improve the connectivity of their properties.

The interactive connectivity map is intended to assist the decision making of digital connectivity providers based on current availability and demand. As provision of connectivity is a demand driven service making this information about availability from providers available in a transparent way will help to drive improved connectivity.
