Parliamentary Space Committee & Digital Policy Alliance Event:
BROADBAND FOR ALL
Can satellite and radio get us 100% cover today?
Chair: Adam Afriyie MP
TUESDAY 10 MARCH 2015, 15.00
Guest Speakers: David Williams, CEO of Avanti Communications Group plc Helen Milner, Chief Executive, Tinder Foundation David Cullen, Chair of INCA & ITS Technology Group D avid Webb, Rural Affairs Policy Chairman, FSB
The Parliamentary Space Committee and the Digital Policy Alliance are holding a joint event to discuss why we are not getting broadband for all.
Access to broadband is a hot political issue across the UK. The disparities in service are not easily explained by simple economics. Residents and businesses in the City of London are less well-served than those living in West Dorset.
So what is going wrong? How should we address Britain’s new digital divide? What are the lessons from other countries? How should it be funded and what mix of technologies can be used: mobile, satellite and Wi-Fi as well as cable?
