The telecoms industry is responding to demand for broader-band services, but what happens next? Join us at the ‘After 5′ Telecoms seminar which will take a look at issues surrounding this topical subject.

Broadband Wales’ CTO, Andy Williamson will examine the future of communications, mobility and convergence and how these increasingly impact on today’s sophisticated IT systems. Andy will explain how Wales is gearing up its broadband infrastructure to meet these imperatives.
