INCA's first in-person event of 2023, Speeding up Deployment explores progress on some of the issues that have been getting in the way of Altnet roll-outs. We'll be taking in flexi-permits, streetworks, and collaboration with local authorities as well as wayleaves, supply chain and labour/skills issues in this half-day tour of key topics. 

We'll also be looking at the state of play of PIA, alternative infrastructure options and the potential for infrastructure sharing, as well as catching up on progress towards those government targets for gigabit connectivity and how our sector might work together to help us all get there sooner.

And as if that's not enough we'll also be presenting a supplier showcase featuring some of the key products and services designed to accelerate Altnet roll-out programmes.

We are grateful to Oliver Helm, CEO of Full Fibre for agreeing to chair the event.
