Welcome to our November update. We hope you are all fine, well and wrapped up warm and snug.
Where has November gone? Is it me or did that month just fly by? One minute it was Halloween and now it’s all tinsel and Christmas trees!
So, what happened (apart from Bonfire Night of course) in November? Well we were spared the embarrassment of party-political votes in London as Westminster was moth-balled and politicians returned to their constituencies to prepare for the December General Election. Boy have they all been busy. It’s been baby kissing, hospital visits and high viz vests galore as the good and the currently less than great of our political elite glad-hand their way around the UK.
It’s not appropriate for us to have an opinion or take a view on politics. However, when your industry will become directly and dramatically impacted then it is appropriate as you can provide commentary and fact around what is being proposed. So, with the Labour Party pledging free of charge full fibre broadband access for every house and very business in the UK by 2030, we thought we might tell you exactly what they could mean. And you get a nice little technical introduction into what Full Fibre Broadband (FTTP) is! Excellent stuff eh?
It has also been a very quiet month sport wise too hasn’t it? We’ve had a little bit of international football as England’s men’s team have qualified relatively comfortably for the European Championship Finals next summer. In local football, Leicester City continue to confound the experts as they challenge Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. Brendan Rodgers really has done something special at Leicester, but will Arsenal come calling ~ well I know a City that hopes not. In the other East Midlands cities Nottingham Forest are hanging on to hopes of promotion and Derby County eagerly await the arrival of Wayne Rooney to re-ignite their promotion hopes. Will the England legend make a difference, only time will tell?
In rugby and cricket, Leicester Tigers continue to struggle and look worryingly over their shoulder as Saracens drive to recover their -35 points penalty, and England toil in New Zealand as the black caps put England’s bowlers to the sword. A big innings needed by Captain Root this weekend, I think.
Hey and what is new business wise? Well November saw Comms Vision 2019, a 3-day invitation only event at Gleneagles. Evoke Telecom were invited, and we’ve shared what our industry thinks the future of Digital Britain looks like, so please do read on. We also launched our new Green Energy initiative as Evoke Telecom look to do our bit for Climate Change by promoting as much of a move to Green Sustainable energy as we can with our customers and prospects. Why not do your bit and consider a move from damaging brown energy to green energy. We can even help with grants towards electric vehicle charging points at your offices and at home. Why not read on and learn more?
