This event is the second in our Supplier & Innovation Roadshow series for 2024, intended to bring the network designers, builders, and operators together with the providers of innovative cutting edge products and services.

This session will look at the design and build process through the lens of the BDUK Project Gigabit programme.

This first event in the series was a great success, and this follow-up, generously hosted the west London base of Mills Limited, will take a deeper look at the established themes. Full programme and speakers coming soon.
