This seminar looked at the next steps for delivering telecoms infrastructure in Scotland.
With increased connectivity challenges in rural areas, delegates examined the latest thinking in tackling challenges for delivering telecoms infrastructure.
Attendees considered issues raised by the Scottish Affairs Committee and the Audit Scotland report into what is needed to deliver 100% broadband coverage, including calls for greater cross-government collaboration in the UK and Scottish Governments and aligning regulatory frameworks set by Government to local market conditions.
Further sessions examined the potential use of funding available to businesses and local government.
Delegates also looked at commercial investment in strategic infrastructure deployment in fibre broadband and developing 5G networks.
Discussion touched on regulating and setting the market conditions to support investment and putting in place infrastructure and services to best meet the demands of businesses and consumers.
Attendees discussed what is needed from the telecoms industry and policy to keep pace with the evolving needs of consumers, particularly those in rural areas - taking into account competition issues and regulatory frameworks, and in the context of latest trends in service provision and technological innovation - including services for on-the-move customers.
