Where there is a stable DAB signal, it has proved itself. BUT there are many areas where it is not reliably received, especially on rural roads and in hilly terrain. Such areas have a low de facto priority, both for digital radio and for smart phone reception. More densely populated areas will soon have 5G, others will continue to get between zero and 3G coverage. Broadband services are similarly affected. Initial FTTC download speeds have steadily dropped, apparently due to increasing subscriber numbers and increasing data throughput, video in particular. Broadband subscribers pay flatrate fees, irrespective of local data throughput. Government and Ofcom uphold interests which do not match those of the public.
