BSG Chairman sets out need for vision, leadership and coordinationbsg
At the BSG Reception last night BSG Chairman Kip Meek outlined the three requirements he sees to solving next generation broadband in the UK: an explicit vision of a next generation broadband future; leadership from government, Ofcom and others such as the BSG; and both supported by coordinated stakeholder efforts. Setting out his vision of a superfast future, Meek identified the five key obstacles he sees to achieving this, and called for renewed efforts in the months ahead.
In the following Q&A, minister for communications Stephen Carter welcomed the speech, and encouraged all stakeholders to engage “openly, constructively and analytically” with the Digital Britain Report process. He stated that the biggest challenge facing the Digital Britain Report was getting things done “fast and well”, but that Digital Britain was why he was in post and would receive his full focus.
