INCA has continued to work in the area of standards for our members and our industry. We have more members accredited as Gold Standard networks. We contributed to the GigaTAG report which included the Gold Standard. This led to Ofcom being tasked with seeing if the wider industry could agree and convened the Ofcom Working Group on Common Standards for Consumer information on Broadband Products. An intro to that Working Group and Ofcom meeting schedules are on this page..Documents and papers for/from the Ofcom meetings are here.
We have therefore revitalised the Quality Mark Working Group into the INCA Standards group. This will consider the changes we could do to our scheme to include a Gigabit-capable mark. It will also allow members to discuss the work coming out of Ofcom and give their feedback.
The INCA Standards Group has agreed to meet in the week prior to the Ofcom WG meetings so that INCA Members can give their input to the Ofcom process. The Group will also consider other matters:
- Ofcom WG report and INCA feedback for next WG
- Amendments to INCA Gold Standard
- Consistency with Ofcom Code
- Adding FTTB
- General updates
- BDUK criteria
- Work with BSI
- Developing a BSI PAS
- Building to a BSI Kitemark?
