This debate will get beyond the polite political rhetoric to ask whether this vision is helpful or hoplessly flawed.

The UK has less than 10% fibre penetration. Politicians have aspired to much better and industry has responded with many new "altnets" emerging and with existing players such as OpenReach and Virgin increasing their rate of deployment. But at current rates, 100% penetration by 2035 might be more realistic, and that is only if the funding issues for less economic areas are successfully addressed. And is fibre to every home even necessary, or will cable, hybrid fibre-coax, fixed wireless or even 5G be sufficient for some?

Speakers:

  • Martin Duckworth; Associate Director, Frontier Economics
  • Stephen Unger; Flint Global
