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

In this half-day session, industry experts from Fieldfisher, Piran Partners and
Money Week will cover a range of issues facing the European telecoms industry as it grapples with the demands of ever-increasing mobile data traffic against a backdrop of consumer expectations of on-going price competition.

We will review the regulatory environment for superfast broadband and also look at recent competition cases concerning margin squeeze.  We will also look
at the UK government's proposals for infrastructure sharing and expanding mobile coverage and consider the impact of the major UK Government programmes and initiatives for the telecoms industry. We will also assess the European Commission's spectrum policy proposals and assess what the mobile networks of the future will look like and what applications they may support. We will also consider the latest thinking on ISP liability, security
for mobile apps and the emerging legal regime for privacy and security and
assess what the impact will be on telcos. 

Guest speakers will also discuss what the future holds for MVNOs and the
relevance of existing wholesale models as well as the latest developments in
mobile payments and cryptocurrencies.

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
