Today, the Broadband Stakeholder Group (BSG) welcomes key figures in the UK telecoms market to their conference “Competition in a converged world”.

In a series of keynote speeches and panel discussions, the event will explore major competition issues surrounding the future of the UK telecoms market and aims to answer the following questions: 

  • What are the benefits and challenges of converging networks? 
  • Which competition models are viable and beneficial for the end-user?
  • How to balance innovation and regulation? 

Leading UK law firm, Shepherd and Wedderburn, which has extensive experience and an exceptional client-base in the telecommunications, media and technology (TMT) sector, are sponsors of the London event. Gordon Moir, who heads up the firm’s TMT regulatory team, will chair a discussion on ‘Service or infrastructure level competition’ with panel speakers from leading telecoms providers, including Virgin Media, Vodafone, TalkTalk and BT.

Moir, who is considered a global leader in the provision of regulatory and anti-trust support, commented: “This event provides a superb opportunity to discuss key competition questions which are dominating the strategic reviews taking place at both the UK and EU level. I am looking forward to exchanging opinions and leading an interesting debate.”

The Broadband Stakeholder Group (BSG) is the UK government’s leading advisory group on broadband. Established in 2001, it provides a neutral forum for organisations across the converging broadband value-chain to discuss and resolve key policy, regulatory and commercial issues, with the ultimate aim of helping to create a strong and competitive UK knowledge economy.
