CBN works with communities, local authorities and NGOs, both in the UK and internationally, to help develop community-focused, sustainable broadband networks. It brings together some of the UK's top experts in telecommunications strategy, business development, technical implementation, and social ownership and mutual structures.
INCA Independent Networks Co-operatives Association (INCA) has a vision is to achieve 100% coverage of next generation broadband as quickly as possible, nobody left behind. To get there, particularly in harder to reach areas, INCA advocates a partnership approach bringing together public, private and community sectors to plan next generation coverage regionally and locally.
The Final Third First Campaign Country Land & Business Association - Final Third First Campaign has come into existence because there are thousands of people in the UK who do not have a functional broadband connection at present (in “notspots” and because of technical issues with the existing telephone network), and approximately a third of the country whose future connectivity requirements will not be met by the market by 2017.
The Broadband Stakeholder Group (BSG) is the UK government’s leading advisory group on broadband. 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. It was established in 2001, and since 2006 has focused on next generation broadband issues.
The BSG’s diverse network includes telecoms operators, manufacturers, investors, ISPs, mobile network operators, broadcasters, new media companies, content producers and rights holders, as well as central and local government, devolved administrations, Ofcom and others.
The BSG is based in the offices of Intellect, the trade body for the ICT, telecommunications and electronics industry.
