    Skye MacLeod, Programme Manager for techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Programme explains what to expect this week!

Throughout Telecoms 2020 Week, techUK is bringing you news, views and insights from the technology sector – showcasing the work of this sector and providing tech industry thought-leadership on what the telecoms sector will look like by 2020.

This is an important time for the telecoms sector – in terms of technology and network evolution, changes in coverage and consumer adoption, developments in market competition and consolidations, and with reviews taking place in the UK, EU and at the International level that will impact on the whole industry and market structure.

techUK's recently published submission to the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee's inquiry "Establishing world-class connectivity throughout the UK" highlighted how connectivity is now vital in every aspect of the digital economy and the drive for productivity and growth. The importance of the above developments are therefore more important than ever before!

All this week we will be sharing guest blogs by telecoms thought leaders and daily tweets exploring "What will telecoms 2020 look like?":

• Monday – What are the current telecoms networks and markets? And what will they be like in 2020?

• Tuesday – What will be the evolution of regulation by 2020 to enable innovation and growth?

• Wednesday – What decisions are being taken now which will effect spectrum access, demand, and use in 2020?

• Thursday & Friday – What will be the Technology Applications of Telecoms by 2020? Internet of Things? 5G? Satellite? Broadband?


All blog posts can be found here over the course of the week – Telecoms 2020 blog posts.

Join the debate and discussion on the future of Telecoms in the UK on twitter @techUK and #telecoms2020.
