  • A coordinated response to Equinox 2

    INCA is frustrated by the preliminary view Ofcom has outlined in its consultation on BT Openreach’s Equinox 2 proposals. INCA is clear in its analysis of Equinox 2 that the scheme deliberately threatens competitiveness and makes it harder for new entrants to compete in the full fibre market.

  • At a sell-out Awards Dinner on the evening of November 16th in the grand surroundings of Liverpool's St. George's Hall – recognised by many as one of the world's finest neo-classical buildings – the winners of our 2022 Awards Programme were announced.

    The winners are:

  • The shortlist of finalists for this years sought-after INCA Awards has been published. A total of 28 finalists have been announced across the eight awards categories.

    The independent panel of judges – which this year comprises Ros Singleton, CEO of Spring Fibre, and Chair of the UK5G Advisory Board, Itret Latif, CEO of the Federation of Communications Services (FCS), Barry Forde, Melissa Cogavin, Managing Editor of Broadband Journal for the SCTE, and Ian Adkins from specialist telecoms advisory firm Analysys Mason – have had their work cut out, with a record number of entries to sift through, analyse and rank.

  • On behalf of the Independent Networks Co-operative Association and all our members we wish to offer our sincere condolences to the Royal Family on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

    Few of us will have known any other monarch. The Queen was truly the epitome of public service both in the UK and on the world stage, and she will be sadly missed by millions.

    During the decades of the Queen’s reign many enormous societal changes have taken place, not least being the development of the Internet. INCA’s members are dedicated to renewing the UK’s digital infrastructure and many will be aware that senior members of the Royal Family were early adopters of email and online services.

  • INCA has today announced that the deadline for submissions to the 2022 Awards Programme has been extended to August 22nd. The decision to push back the deadline comes hot on the heels of the announcement of a new 'Rising Star' award.

    INCA's Gill Williams: "We've had a number of members enquiring about  the amount of time available to prepare their awards nominations. Of course we recognise that it takes time and care to develop a good quality nomination submission, and many of our members are already working full pelt deploying new fibre. So when we took the decision to launch the new Rising Star award, it was clear that we had to give members additional time, so we've pushed the deadline back, giving everyone an additional three weeks."

  • The 2022 INCA Awards - photo of an 'INCA Gold' award with blue sky background

    In recognition of the fact that many businesses in our sector have been rapidly growing their teams over the last year or two, and that many of those people will be arriving through apprenticeship schemes and other trainee programmes, INCA has announced a new Rising Star award for the 2022 Awards Programme.

    Malcolm Corbett, INCA's CEO: "Recruiting and nurturing talent is an essential art in our sector. For any organisation, success begins with your people – how you develop them, how you support them, and how you enable them to reach their potential. This award – suggested by our Labour & Skills Special Interest Group – seeks to recognise the rising stars of our industry – the young people who are making a significant contribution despite their limited experience."

  • We're pleased to announce that the 2022 INCA Awards Programme has been launched, and we are are keen to receive nominations from member organisations across the seven awards categories. The INCA Awards Programme has been running since 2018, with the goal of highlighting outstanding examples of excellence in our industry, and this year is no different. 

  • More than 5.5 million homes and businesses in the UK can now connect to an independent fibre broadband network, according to new figures published today. For the first time, the total number of live connections provided by the ‘alt nets’ is above 1m. 

    Compiled for INCA by Point Topic using data provided by independent network operators across the country, this year’s ‘Metrics for the UK Independent Network Sector’ report shows that the sector has again doubled in size over the previous year.
