INCA Roadshow: Shrewsbury

25th May 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The INCA roadshow will showcase alternative providers delivering superfast and ultrafast broadband in communities around the country. Policy makers increasingly recognise the importance of the ‘altnets’ working alongside BT to deliver new, high capacity digital infrastructure. They are attracting significant private investment and winning BDUK procurements.

Working together with BDUK we will feature case studies of how FTTP (fibre to the premises), wireless and satellite networks are being deployed, delivering fantastic services, often in very hard to reach communities. We will discuss the opportunities for more towns and cities to achieve truly world class digital infrastructure that will set them apart in terms of business competitiveness.
