With top speakers including Chi Onwurah MP, Shadow Minister for Business, Innovation and Skills and Simon Towler, Head of Broadband Policy and Programmes at BIS.

Simon Towler talked about Broadband Delivery UK and the Government's commitment for 2Mbps to every household by 2015. He also confirmed that the broadband strategy document would be published in the next few days.
The first panel session included speakers Andrew Heaney from TalkTalk and Geoff Taylor from the BPI, who debated the effects of the initial obligations code and the judicial review on the initial obligations code.
