Issue: The Communications Infrastructure Programme provides valuable insight and discussion to members on relevant market engagement, Government policy, and Ofcom regulatory proposals.
At the national level, the key aim for techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Programme during 2018 was to support our members in delivering digital connectivity fit for the 2020s through targeted activities. Some activities included: DCMS’s Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review and Ofcom consultations.
International issues also included: ensuring UK telecoms interests are properly represented in UK official positions and EU decisions on the Digital Single Market / Single Telecoms Package and the Review of the EU regulatory framework relating to electronic communications services (Framework Review).
Outcomes: techUK continues to function as a constructive intermediary within industry through regular meetings across the year by the Communication Infrastructure Council and the techUK-Ofcom Forum.
We have facilitated a rich programme of regular meetings as well as related workshops, seminars, roundtables and conferences.
Workshops, seminars and conferences hosted by techUK in 2018 included:
