London, UK, 13 December 2019 – The Independent Networks Co-operative Association (INCA) has today congratulated new Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his historic election victory, welcoming the greater certainty the result will bring.
INCA CEO Malcolm Corbett said: “On behalf of our members INCA offers congratulations to the Prime Minister for his historic General Election victory. Our members welcome the clarity of the result and the greater certainty this brings. We look forward to working with the new ministerial team as INCA’s members continue to build the best possible digital infrastructure our country needs and deserves.”
The Conservative Manifesto reiterated Johnson’s pledge to deliver ‘gigabit capable’ networks throughout the country by 2025. This is a challenging target and INCA will continue working to address key issues including potential restrictions on labour supply, trade, busting through barriers to deployment and funding allocations with the new minister and officials.
