Broadband Beyond 2015: Where Next for Britain's Broadband Future?

Synopsis

The internet is a huge part of our lives, whether we are at home, at work or out and about. Recognising the importance of connectivity, the government has allocated funds to help take superfast broadband to most of the country by 2015, along with a commitment that everyone will have access to basic broadband.

Whilst much of the current focus is rightly on delivery, we must also start thinking about the UK's strategy beyond 2015. At this event we will explore the findings of new Policy Exchange research on the future of broadband policy, and discuss a number of related themes including:

  • What policymakers should be focusing on beyond speed and league tables
  • Enabling a healthy, competitive and sustainable marketplace for connectivity
  • Ensuring that consumers and businesses make best use of the internet
