This session will be dedicated to the All IP Transition programme (aka WLR Withdrawal) and how it will impact you and your Customers.

We have teamed up with the Openreach All IP Programme Team to pull together a draft agenda (below)  that focusses on areas that we know are of interest to you. We want to make the session as interactive as possible and there will be ample opportunity to raise your queries with our panel of Openreach, FCS and Wholesaler experts during the session. 

We know how much this will impact you over the next few years so please extend the invitation to any colleagues in your organisations who will benefit from hearing about the programme first hand.
