Turning Good into Great Connectivity for the UK

Page

In looking back on a fantastic Good to Great Connectivity for the UK campaign week, the overriding impression is the fantastic level of ambition within the existing work and vision of the sector. From augmented reality, predictive modelling and gigabit cities, the UK’s best and brightest are leading work that have the potential to dramatically change how we live and work.

As the UK looks towards a post-Brexit environment, UK Government’s objective and competitive differentiator will be in putting the UK “at the forefront of the global technology revolution”. Key to realising this aim is technology, and communication and connectivity which underpin the recently published Spring Budget, 5G Strategy, Industrial Strategy and Digital Strategy.

A key strand in fast tracking UK economic growth is in incentivising investment and innovation to enable world class digital connectivity across the UK - in Transport Corridors and Urban & Rural Connectivity, through Communications Resiliency and the right Regulatory Environment to enable the Emergence of New Applications of Communications & Connectivity.

As the UK trade association for the digital technologies industries, techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Programme is already undertaking a number of initiatives that will contribute to the aim of driving investment and innovation to enable world class digital connectivity in the UK:

techUK will shortly be launching our vision for Good to Great Digital Connectivity for a World Class Economy. Get involved in techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Programme.
