techUK comments on the conclusion of the Telecoms Supply Chain Review
techUK CEO Julian David responds to the Government's announcement on the conclusion of its Telecoms Supply Chain Review.
Commenting on today’s Government announcement on the conclusion of its Telecoms Supply Chain Review, Julian David CEO of techUK said:
“The deployment of 5G and full-fibre broadband will underpin the economic transformation of the UK over the next decade.
Today’s decision sets out how 5G can be rolled out quickly and securely. It gives businesses deploying that infrastructure more of the clarity that they need to get on and build their networks.
To drive innovation in the long-term we need a diverse and competitive supply chain and we encourage Government to lower barriers to entry for new vendors. techUK, with members from across the telecoms sector, will continue to work with DCMS and Ofcom to determine how the security and resilience needed for tomorrow’s telecoms networks is assured.”
