Shortly after every Westminster eForum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our contacts in government, parliament and stakeholders more widely.
A Forum publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
Each publication includes:
- All speeches from the day, with accompanying slides and speaker biographies
(subject to approval by speaker);
- Transcripts of question and comment sessions;
- Supplementary articles from speakers and delegates; and
- Event information such as the delegate list and final agenda
Building 21st century broadband - paying, laying and stimulating demand
PUBLISHED November 2010
In the context of the Government reaffirming its commitment to the national deployment of superfast broadband, this seminar provided a timely examination of the latest measures, including the recently announced pilot projects for rural broadband, and considered the feasibility of the new 2012 target for 2Mb 'broadband Britain'. Sessions examined the barriers to the rollout of NGA (next generation access), what is needed to encourage private sector investment and how all parts of the country from urban to rural can be ensured a place in the broadband fast lane.
