Full Fibre Growth

How can digital industry and infrastructure drive levelling up?

Underpinning so much of our modern economy and society, full fibre has great potential to level up communities across the country. Whilst industry rollout of full fibre continues to accelerate, many obstacles remain – including practical barriers slowing down deployment, and lack of clarity on how rural areas will be included.

This panel explored how we can best navigate and overcome these barriers to meet the new government rollout target and unleash the huge benefits digital can bring.
