Event round-up: Briefing - how will the digital phone switchover impact transport?

On 22 February, techUK members, industry figures, and public sector representatives were briefed on what the retirement of the legacy phone line (public switched telephone network or PSTN) means for the transport industry.  

Attendees heard perspectives from Ofcom (Hew Saunders), Virgin Media/o2 (David Christie), Openreach (Phil Laws), the Department for Science, Technology and Innovation (Gillis Holgersson), and the Department for Transport (Gary Crockford).  

This informative session provided an overview of the programme, the roles and responsibilities within the sector and government, and the impact on transport. Practical guidance was also given for preparing your business or customers to ensure a seamless transition.
