From Aberdeen to Brighton: Investing in the UK’s digital future
More investment in the UK’s broadband infrastructure is critical to ensure the UK’s future success in technology in a post-Brexit world.
With Brexit on the horizon, it is an unfortunate truth that there remains little certainty over what our future relationship with Brussels will look like.
