  • MIF’s goal is to support the delivery of world-class mobile infrastructure to improve wireless connectivity for society and businesses throughout the UK
  • Forum members represent four key organisations operating large-scale portfolios of shared mobile infrastructure in the UK (Cellnex UK, Cornerstone, MBNL and Wireless Infrastructure Group).

MIF logoThe Mobile Infrastructure Forum (‘MIF’) launches today, bringing together the interests of four key organisations operating large-scale portfolios of shared mobile infrastructure in the UK (Cellnex UK, Cornerstone, MBNL and Wireless Infrastructure Group).

MIF’s goal is to support the delivery of world-class mobile infrastructure to improve wireless connectivity for society and businesses throughout the UK.

MIF’s objectives are to:

  • Share with Government and other relevant stakeholders the combined experience and views of MIF participants to inform policy and regulatory activity;
  • Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of network rollout (e.g. effective implementation of the Product Security Telecommunications Infrastructure (PSTI) Act, improved planning approval rates, supportive business rates regime);
  • Generate positive public and local decision-maker sentiment and action that supports the delivery of world-class mobile infrastructure and associated wireless connectivity;
  • Foster closer relationships between landowners and infrastructure providers, including working with the National Connectivity Alliance (NCA).
  • Work closely and align with Mobile UK and its Mobile Network Operator (MNO) members on relevant infrastructure matters.

Belinda Fawcett, Chair of the Mobile Infrastructure Forum, commented:

“The launch of the Mobile Infrastructure Forum is a significant milestone in our efforts to support the delivery of world-class mobile infrastructure throughout the UK. The four organisations are committed to working with our stakeholders to ensure that the UK has the mobile infrastructure it needs to thrive in the digital age.”
