Why are telcos still struggling with diversity?
Men still dominate senior roles in the telecommunications industry, but is the picture changing? A BBC analysis of the gender pay gap shows that across all sectors there has been no progress in the last 12 months. Yet, as Phil Dobbie explores in this second Total Telecom Podcast, there is every reason for companies to encompass diversity. Vodafone, for example, believe their approach is creating a more competitive company. So, if there’s sound commercial reasons for employing more women in senior roles, what’s stopping it happening? In this edition you’ll hear from: Catherine Michel, CTO at Sigma Systems Lynsey Thomas, Director at Subsea Networks Matt Hughes, Deputy Head of Labour Market Division at the ONS Karina Govindji, Head of Diversity and Inclusion a Vodafone
The Battle for Full Fibre Broadband
Britain is fortunate in having fast broadband available to 95 percent of the population, thanks to the extensive reach of Openreach’s FTTC network. But that’s not true fibre broadband. In this first edition of the Total Telecom Podcast Phil Dobbie explores how, until now, the large-scale expansion of full fibre networks has been delayed as the BT Group, understandably, squeezes what they can from their broadband investment. Now the tables have turned, with CityFibre amongst the players now building full fibre networks across the country. But isn’t there a danger of overbuild, with multiple providers destroying the viability of each other’s business case? On the podcast you’ll hear from: - Katie Milligan, MD Customer, Commercial and Propositions at Openreach - Telecoms analyst Benoit Felten from Diffraction Analysis - Mark Collins, CityFibre’s Director of Strategy and Public Affairs
