ComReg today hosted a conference on the future of the telecoms sector in the Round Room at the Mansion House entitled “Telecoms: A Changing Landscape.”
The conference explored how the internet will evolve over the next decade as hyperscaler content and service providers roll out new products, the demand on networks grows, and Europe is now considering who pays. The conference also examined investment in essential infrastructure and the need for resilience in our electronic communications infrastructure.
The Chairperson of ComReg, Robert Mourik said the conference gave ComReg and its stakeholders a welcome opportunity to critically examine the challenges facing the sector given the huge growth in traffic across the internet and the need to ensure widespread and resilient connectivity. Mr. Mourik said:
“Consumers in Ireland and elsewhere are enjoying the benefits of the digital era as the internet evolves and expands. Telecoms infrastructure is the backbone of the internet. As the demand for high-speed connectivity and new internet services increases, it’s essential that we invest in next-generation technologies and ensure that our networks are adaptable, resilient, and secure. By embracing innovation and collaboration, we can build a future-proof telecoms infrastructure that delivers the connectivity and resilience that our digital society needs to thrive. The conference gave ComReg and its stakeholders an important opportunity to examine the impact that this change is having on the overall electronic communications sector.”
