With the election dust barely settled, July ushers in a fresh political climate – but what does that mean for the industry? 

'The New Political Climate: Investment and Competition' brings together industry experts in insightful panel discussions on how the election results will shape policy, drive digital infrastructure investment, and accelerate Altnet growth.

Don't miss this chance to be part of the discussion and connected in an evolving landscape.
