ABC SME's Failing To Use Broadband
By: MarkJ - 14 January, 2004 (12:56 PM)

The Access to Broadband Campaign has today urged small businesses to attend its forthcoming conference, 'Revolution at the Edge' 27-28th January 2004 (Bedfont Lakes, near Heathrow). The reason being because many SME's are still failing to take-up broadband:

There is major concern in Government and Industry that where Broadband is available, there is still a disturbing lack of uptake by SMEs.

Broadband access ultimately means greater productivity. It enables the use of applications that can lead to huge benefits, from operating efficiency to improved market penetration. It is believed that the poor take-up stems from "Not knowing what can be achieved", rather than a lack of interest.

The Access to Broadband Campaign and its conferences are focussed on helping SMEs understand what broadband offers and so get the most from it.

ABC is all about affordable broadband access for all and its January Conference, "Revolution at the Edge: Broadband Networks and Innovation", focuses strongly on these issues. Just 10 places remain for SMEs that would like to know more about The Broadband revolution.

Hear from the Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, from Oracle's director of business development, the chief executive of RuralNet, e-commerce minister Stephen Timms and many others.

The conference program is extensive and a subsidised rate of 75 - or just 50 for day two only, is offered to SMEs.

Anyone not already registered to attend the conference is urged to call the conference registration office today or go to http://www.abcampaign.org.uk and register online.
