Connected Ireland: delivering enhanced broadband for all

Patrick Kidney, Principal and Head of the Analysys Mason Dublin office, will be participating at the "Connected Ireland: delivering enhanced broadband for all" event in Dublin on 5 December 2017.

Pat will be leading a roundtable on "rural provision" and moderating a panel on "Creating the right incentive and regulatory framework for a Connected Ireland".

About the event

The Irish Government has prioritised investment in high capacity broadband networks in recent years because of the huge socioeconomic benefits they can bring. The key policy that has resulted from this new focus is the National Broadband Plan which sets ambitious targets for Irish telcos to deliver enhanced broadband speeds across the country culminating in ubiquitous gigabit networks.

Connected Ireland will explore in depth the opportunities and challenges the NBP, and the digital revolution more generally, are bringing to communications service providers and digital service providers, as well as national and local governments. It will bring together a diverse group of stakeholders that represent the 'digital ecosystem' to understand how they can work together to achieve the targets set out in the NBP and realise the socioeconomic benefits enhanced connectivity can bring. Delegates will include national regulators, local governments, telco operators, OTT players, enterprise, finance, consultants, associations and interest groups.

The event is free to attend for qualifying parties who may register through Eventbrite. Places are strictly limited.

  • telecom operators and service providers
