UPDATE ISPA Conference to Discuss Future of the UK Internet and Broadband

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013 (8:57 am) - Score 585

The 8th annual ISPA Conference, which will be held on Wednesday 27th November 2013 (9:15am – 4pm), has set out quite an interesting agenda and one that intends to look at the state of national broadband provision (both now and post-2015) as well as what ISPs might look like in ten years’ time.

The conference (‘The Internet industry: what lies ahead?‘) has this year been split up into four panels. Panel 1 will start the day at 9:45am by discussing how the Internet aides growth and opportunities, while Panel 2 will investigate the current and future state of broadband alongside the Government’s role in helping to develop a modern communications industry.

Finally, Panel 3 will look at the future of ISPs and Panel 4 will examine the role of ISPs in ‘moderating’ the Internet (censorship etc.). As usual a variety of ISPs are to be involved in all of the panels and some of the other guest speakers include an unannounced representative from the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) office, Point Topic’s Oliver Johnson and Stella Creasy MP.

The event itself, which will be held at K & L Gates (EC4M 9AF) in London, carries a somewhat hefty entry fee of £225 +vat for non-members and tickets can be booked here. A more detailed agenda is also available here.

UPDATE 4:55pm

The ISPA informs that they’re offering a 25% discount for those who use the promo code ‘ ISPREVIEW ‘ when booking their tickets.

    More talk then and no action.

    And while they are at it can the BDUK speaker explain why we can’t have more detail councils roll out plans such as when and where ?.

  3. Avatar BT Investor

    There’s much to discuss but nobody can deny BT has made great strides in connecting the vast majority of the UK population up-to super fast fibre broadband connections. They should be applauded for their investments that are paying off for shareholders, corporations and consumers.

      BT is always good at making strides at connecting up the the majority of the UK population always plunging resources back into urban areas rather than trying to level the playing field for the rural folk and close the digital divide. The majority of my village and surrounding parishes want fibre but we are never going to get it. Less talk, more action if you really think you are deserving any applause

      “connecting the vast majority of the UK population”

      Huh what? I thought only around a quarter of BTs customers actually had FTTC/P
