Next month, Commhoist will be visiting the capital to exhibit at the Westminster eForum on the next steps for telecoms infrastructure in the UK: competition, network investment and achieving full fibre coverage.
The event which takes place on the 11th July and is facilitated by the Westminster Forum will examine the priorities for future investment in telecoms infrastructure and follows the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review and interim government response to the NIC’s National Infrastructure Assessment which set out priorities for the development of the UK’s digital infrastructure including full fibre and 5G rollout.
As stated by Westminster eForum the event will see “Policymakers and industry stakeholders assess the progress towards fulfilling the Universal Service Obligation – including the impact of programmes such as the Rural Gigabit Connectivity Programme and Local Full Fibre Networks Challenge Fund – and key issues for competition policy, the structure of the telecommunications market and enhancing consumer experience.
Sessions will also examine the future for the regulatory framework, following the public consultation on the Statement of Strategic Priorities for Ofcom and as it outlines its Annual Plan for 2019/20, as well as considering what more is needed to encourage long-term investment, reduce deployment costs and increasing the extent of infrastructure sharing across the sector.”
We’re looking forward to the industry-based discussions, and the opportunity to network with and catch up with fellow telecoms industry colleagues.
If you’re visiting the event visit the Commhoist stand to chat to the team and to learn more about our unique management of telecoms logistics.
