Is The Code Fit for Purpose?

It is generally muted that the code is exactly what the telecom industry wanted, and the legislation was passed with virtually no changes, despite substantial stakeholder proposed amendments. So why is it resulting in so many challenges, failures to agree; which is causing inertia in the roll out of the technology in the UK?

Some may say that the operators have failed to understand the way in which it works and that is the biggest issue in the market today. What is factual, the market is now emerging through case law.  

Where Is The Market Going?

Is there any way the fractured and dysfunctional market can create a working agenda that works for landlords, operators and the roll of 5G? This is why this conference is vital for everyone involved in the industry.
