UK Government targets 35% of traffic over Open RAN by 2030

The announcement came in a joint statement from the country’s mobile operators and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.

Additionally, a target to sunset 2G and 3G networks by 2033 was also set.

The UK government described open network architectures as playing a “key role” in enhancing the security and resilience of networks but also acknowledged that more needs to be done to develop the performance, economics and security of new RAN solutions.

It is important to note that this is an ambition and it is therefore not binding.
