The UK telecoms sector: services, competition and the impact of Brexit
TUESDAY, 14TH FEBRUARY 2017
THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Guest of Honour: Clive Carter, Director of Strategy, Ofcom
This seminar will assess the UK telecoms sector, focusing on
market structures, innovation and pricing.
It takes place during a period of uncertainty over the future for the UK regulatory framework for telecoms in anticipation of the UK process of withdrawal from the European Union, and in anticipation of a new legislation for electronic communications infrastructure and services.
It is also timed a year on since the Government issued its response to Ofcom’s strategic review of digital, encouraging the regulator to take bold action in addressing the competition problems identified.
Planned sessions will consider the latest developments in policy to promote growth, innovation and quality of services in the UK telecoms market and the UK digital economy’s wider competitiveness, as well as examine industry initiatives in strengthening the consumer offer across fixed, mobile, broadband and TV services to encourage fair market competition.
We are delighted that Clive Carter, Director of Strategy, Ofcom has agreed to deliver a keynote address at this conference. Further speakers at this early stage include Julian Ashworth, Global Director of Group Industry Policy, BT Group; Russell Feldman, Director of Digital, Media, and Technology, YouGov; Samira Gazzane, Policy Manager, Broadband Stakeholder Group; Jessica Lennard, Director of Corporate Affairs and Regulation, TalkTalk; Richard Neudegg, Head of Regulation, USwitch; Richard Swinford, Partner, Telecoms, Information, Media & Electronics (TIME) Practice, Arthur D.
