Next Generation Networks

Our Say

"We already know that the economic case for next generation access will not stack up in some areas and we can predict which areas that will be. We must address these issues alongside commercial roll-out, not after it. If we are imaginative we could provide a way for consumers who are excluded from first generation broadband to leapfrog straight to the next generation. The UK is making some critical decisions about fast broadband, but the decisions need to be informed by a proper sense of the value next generation networks can deliver, not just to companies and consumers, but to the economy and society as a whole."
