About the event

This Westminster eForum conference will discuss progress, key issues and next steps for meeting the Government’s targets for delivering gigabit capable broadband.

It takes place in the context of Project Gigabit which is aiming to deliver gigabit-capable broadband to at least 85% of UK premises by 2025.

Delegates will discuss Ofcom’s decisions on the regulatory framework relating to competition and investment in fibre networks, and the work of the DCMS Gigabit Take-up Advisory Group (GigaTAG).

The agenda will bring out latest thinking on:

  • regulation - the future framework for the wholesale telecoms market and what it means for broadband delivery across the UK
  • rollout - progress and key issues for meeting the Government’s 2025 target for gigabit broadband coverage, with discussion on investment, infrastructure, planning, and practical challenges
  • competition - looking at the impact of the 2025 target on the market, the supply chain, and associated retail services
  • wider impact - unlocking the broader benefits of gigabit broadband and the potential role of ultrafast connectivity in supporting economic development, regional growth, and decarbonisation
