Venus Hosts Event at Palace of Westminster to Discuss Future of Connectivity and the Need to Transform London into a Gigabit City

Venus Business Communications’ event to explore Gigabit Cities attracted businesses to the Palace of Westminster to hear a range of speakers including entrepreneur Alex Proud. Issues discussed included trialling fibre to the basement and the need for competition and choice in the broadband market. Improving the speed and quality of infrastructure installation led to suggestions regarding introducing universal service obligations and standard wayleave agreements. Venus highlighted the importance of fibre as backhaul technology to support wireless connections, while Alex Proud stressed the need for reliable service given businesses’ increasing dependence on broadband.  In addition, Alex Proud discussed the savings made by his company through resource efficiencies using Venus’ fibre 100 mbit connection service. These included: significantly reduced phone bills; the move to cloud to reduce computing costs; the ability to stream CCTV HD to the police and effectively engaging his 100 plus team through video conferencing and file sharing.
