    The telecommunications industry is evolving; the transformation is rapid, bold and permanent. To keep up, your business needs to assess the challenges and opportunities raised by next-generation networks that offer further improved network performance, reliability, higher capacity, new business models and innovative services.

    Telecommunications Law involves both private disputes amongst contracting parties at various stages of the service chain. As the telecommunications industry is considered an essential public utility, it is regulated by OFCOM.

    The delivery of UK telecommunications services is subject to a regulatory regime which is under the legislative framework of the Communications Act 2003. The Act implemented core EU directives, which were designed to provide the core framework for electronic communications in Europe.

    It is evident that Brexit will bring new challenges to the telecommunications sector as over a decade and a half of harmonisation will begin to deteriorate.

    In addition to being able to provide support for the full range of business law services that impact your business, our consultant lawyers can advise you on a range of issues specific to telecoms operators, including:

    • Multi-National Telecoms Operators / Governments / Regulators
    • Fibre Optic Cable Operators
    • Voice Over IP/Broadband
    • Satellite internet
