We're currently working on our website, so here's some brief information about UKFCF.
The UK Fibre Connectivity Forum (UKFCF) was established further to a connectivity-themed reception which took place at the Houses of Parliament in March 2017. This annual reception had originally been organised by Askar Sheibani on behalf of a fibre optic-based organisation within his group of companies (Sorrento Networks) but it was quickly realised here that there was an overwhelming demand from the industry delegates in attendance to create a separate inclusive grassroots campaign group when it was first proposed at this event.
We have collectively established the Forum's vision as follows:
The UK Fibre Connectivity Forum (UKFCF) is an association of organisations and individuals committed to working together to support and advise the UK Government in delivering policies that will create a fertile environment for the rapid growth of the UK’s digital economy. UKFCF’s vision is to establish affordable, high-speed full-fibre connectivity across all parts of the UK in all commercial and residential buildings, delivered on a level playing field for all stakeholders.
The inaugural meeting of the Forum was held in September 2017 and proved to be a great success, followed by a further well-attended meeting in November and the dedicated March 2018 Parliamentary debating reception. Read more here.
The Forum is non-funded, non-profit and free to join and attend, we instead ask that members contribute their resources and expertise where applicable in moving the campaign forward, which we have thus far received fantastic support with.
UKFCF is chaired by founder Askar Sheibani, CEO of the Comtek Group.
UKFCF hosts quarterly meetings. The next quarterly meeting of the Forum will take place on June 3rd 2019, 1.30pm-5.30pm at Grant Thornton's Finsbury Square conference facilities in central London.
