The British government’s ambitions of rolling out nationwide networks of high-speed internet will be all the more important following a lengthy Coronavirus lockdown. Fast, reliable connectivity will be key to super-charging Britain’s return to growth in the aftermath in a post-Covid-19 world.

On 27 April, Assembly Research will launch a new paper sponsored by Huawei, demonstrating the vital need to invest in next generation connectivity to get Britain growing again. The report is an informative and educational piece which puts forward clear and concise policy recommendations on how the UK can meet its connectivity targets

Please Join us at the live launch, an online panel discussion hosted by TechUK at 14:00 on 27 April. Assembly Research principal analyst Matt Howett will reveal the key findings of the report alongside Huawei vice president Victor Zhang. A Q&A session will follow.
