Currently, superfast broadband is available to 83% of UK premises, and 90% of areas have outdoor 4G coverage from at least one operator. Consumers are responding positively to these levels of coverage, with 76% having smartphones, 54% owning tablets, and 56% using connected TVs. Ofcom’s 2015 Strategic Review of Digital Communications suggests that government telecommunication initiatives to improve mobile and internet networks have been behind the rapid growth in telecommunication technologies that have produced larger markets and created new opportunities for British businesses.

However, there is growing concern that the market is being prevented from fulfilling its full potential due to poor rural mobile and internet coverage and over regulation of telecommunications providers. The Future of Telecommunications Technology Conference will explore the importance of the government initiatives to telecommunications industry, and its significance to the UK economy. There will also be discussion and debate on how to ensure that telecommunications market can continue to flourish.
