ISPA Conference 2010 - 'Delivering the Digital Economy'

The sixth annual ISPA Conference took place on Wednesday December 1st kindly sponsored by Nominet, Mozy and Detica and hosted at the offices of Bird and Bird.

The event consisted of a number of panel sessions throughout the day debating some of the most pressing issues facing the Internet industry. 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.

Ms Onwurah delivered the keynote and spoke about the Digital Economy Act and her thoughts on the industry as a new MP with a technology background. She also spoke about broadband delivery and Next Generation Access.

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. The following Cloud session included Will Page from PRS for Music and Claranet MD Michel Robert who debated cloud content, infrastructure and provision.

Following an entertaining presentation from Nominet in the afternoon on DNSSEC, Simon Milner from BT, David Lewis from Rutland Telecom and others debated future broadband delivery and Government investment in the area.

ISPA would like to thank everyone for battling through the weather conditions to take part and Bird & Bird for hosting for the second year running. A big thank you to all the speakers as well as Nominet, Mozy by EMC and Detica for making the event possible through their sponsorship.
