The sustainable development of every aspect of the UK’s economy, our enterprises, our communities and government, is increasingly dependent on the quality of the digital infrastructure. The way we all live (and the way we work) is informed and enabled by this basic investment. Making these access networks fit for new purposes is a huge challenge - an infrastructure investment of £3bn every year until 2017 - and yielding massive benefits for UK enterprise and societal development.
At our Events, independently of suppliers, technologies and services, we provide the space and freedom for knowledge transfer, collaborative planning, community development and the sharing of great ideas, to help with this massive digital transformation. The Next Generation Digital Challenge Awards showcase the best in next generation digital access infrastructure innovation and run alongside the annual NextGen Conference - the UK's leading event for Next Generation broadband activity.
