Government has an ambitious digital agenda and a clear plan to help with the supply side including proposals to overcome to barriers to deployment and gap funding through Project Gigabit. However, Government’s plan at service-provider level is less clear, with a range of significant new asks on industry such as those concerning cyber security duties, intervention in supply chains, and online safety measures.
This online policy event will hear from policymakers on the expectations on members and from industry on whether there is a need for a more comprehensive approach to how it supports the sector. Should we look again at the balance between ISPs and OTT services? Are new security and supply chain obligations too prescriptive? Is a more strategic holistic approach required? As the nation continues to navigate its new place in the world and recovers from the pandemic, we will ask what further help the Government can provide to members.
