Join us for INCA’s Seminar on Full Fibre & 5G

At last year's Broadband World Forum and INCA Conference Matt Hancock, Minister for Digital, declared that the future is ‘Full Fibre and 5G’. Since then government has announced funding and other measures which will support alternative network operators. For many INCA members fibre and wireless connectivity are two ends of the digital infrastructure we are building.

On July 12 INCA will invite representatives of government, Ofcom and industry to discuss progress with policy and funding, service development and challenges including access to spectrum. We will highlight developments in technology and opportunities for collaboration between altnets and major players. This seminar is your opportunity to debate what 'Full Fibre and 5G' means for industry, the wider economy and how your organisation can prosper.
