Scaling Up

The over-arching theme for our events programme this year – and echoed in other aspects our work programme for 2021 – is the idea of Scaling Up. Many of the independent network operators in membership of INCA are working hard to scale their operations in order to better meet the ambitious targets for the rollout of full fibre and other gigabit-capable technologies. The entire industry needs to substantially grow its capability to connect more homes and business at anywhere near the pace required. The INCA events programme is designed to focus on a number of key issues around the scaling up agenda that can help our members to go further faster.

The first event in the Scaling Up series ran on Match 9th, and focussed on the key people challenges of scaling up. As the first speaker at the event reported, DCMS modelling suggests that the sector needs to grow by a factor of 2x to 3x over the next 3 to 4 years in order to meet the ambitious government targets.

Our main conference for 2021 is set for November 3rd and 4th, and will include the INCA Gold Awards. Not to be missed.
