Re: end UK dependance on GPS?

All bank ATMs have a direct connection (secured internet) with a server of that bank and can use the time server of that bank that way. The time server of the bank just polls one or more NTP servers, no need whatsoever to complicate things with GPS, which signal may not even be available inside a building.
