Tratos joins FTTH debate at House of Commons think tank

Tratos’ CEO was once again at the forefront of the race to reconnect the UK with the world’s leading business economies.

The global cable company’s leader, Dr Maurizio Bragagni, was part of a House of Commons think tank debating session hosted by Gavin Robinson MP – with the aim of examining how Britain might best play ‘catch up’ with its lagging fibre optic connectivity.

Two years ago Tratos published a White Paper on the accelerating threat posed to the economy as the UK becomes a fibre network straggler.  In the paper its CEO outlined ready solutions to get Britain back on track for success – if there was sufficient will to take the right steps.  He called for immediate action to stop the back-slide and ramp-up the UK’s efforts to re-energise its competitiveness.

The debating reception ‘Can the UK catch up with the global full fibre connectivity race?’ saw a keynote address from Lord Jonathan Mendelsohn and a panel chaired by Askar Sheibani, CEO Comtek Group and chair of UKFCF – UK Fibre Connectivity Forum.  Ian Lucas MP (Digital, Culture, Media & Sport) also made an address before the floor was thrown open to questions.

At the end of the evening Dr Bragagni commented: “The biggest question has to be – ‘why are we still waiting?’”
