Held at London''s Business Design Centre on the 19 - 20 June, Connected Britain 2018 returns for its fourth year to bring together the main stakeholders and key players in the digital revolution to discuss, learn and collaborate on the UK

The Connected Britain agenda features over 150 high profile speakers, including Sharon White, CEO of Ofcom.

Speaking on Day 2, Mr Marnick will join a panel titled: ''Strategies for delivering our 5G future'' and will be accompanied by Marc Allera, CEO of EE, and other senior representative from mobile operators O2 and Three. Together they will discuss whether the UK is ready for the launch of 5G in 2020, as well as investment strategies for delivering the 5G future.

Margot James MP, Minister for Digital, will also provide a keynote address on Day 1 to continue the discussion on the UK''s digital future. In addition, debates on the road to full fibre and whether regulations need to change will come from key industry figures from speakers representing CityFibre, BDUK, TalkTalk and Openreach.

"It''s been an interesting year for the industry, with the government announcing new funding for network upgrades, huge ongoing investments from telcos with a renewed focus on achieving full fibre and 5G, and ongoing uncertainty in the regulatory sphere," said Rob Chambers, Managing Director at Total Telecom. "The Connected Britain conference will provide rounded coverage of how all this activity will impact your business and the industry more widely."

The event boasts four conference streams: Gigabit Britain, Digital Britain, Smart Britain and Connected Society, which will allow attendees to hear from the biggest operators, OTT players, altnets, government representatives and vendors on how they are embracing and adapting to the changing connectivity landscape in the UK.
