We are pleased to invite you to our Autumn 'Telecoms Intensive' hosted at our new premises in Riverbank House.

In this half-day session, industry experts from Fieldfisher, Analysys Mason, Piran Partners and Plum Consulting will cover a range of issues facing the European telecoms industry as it seeks to increase its ability to invest in the infrastructure required to restore its competitive position.

We will review the European Commission's spectrum policy proposals and assess whether these proposals will help to meet the increasing demands for Connected TV and internet access over mobile broadband. We will also consider the Connected Continent regulation and its Net Neutrality proposals and assess the effect these will have on operator's traffic management practices and their ability to provide customised services differentiated on quality and price.   

We will also take an over-arching view of regulatory reforms at the European level (with particular focus on competition law issues).  Guest speakers will also discuss developments relating to the towers and telecoms real estate market in the EU and the latest issues in the digital identity and data security debate.   Whether you are a telecoms operator, infrastructure provider, B2C or a supplier to the telecoms industry, this conference should provide a fascinating forum in which to debate the latest issues affecting the telecoms sector.

Guest speakers and Fieldfisher telecoms experts will discuss a range of topics including:
