The 2010 Telecoms Report

This report finds that major advances have been achieved in the quality and extent of telecommunications provision in Northern Ireland and, combined with near term plans, the overall provision places it among the leading regions in terms of international standards.

The MATRIX Telecommunications Horizon Panel found that the advanced telecoms services will support world class business activity and they have identified six economic opportunities that relate to multi-billion dollar markets with strong growth prospects.

This report builds on the work of Matrix, the NI Science-Industry panel, in which it was clearly shown that Telecommunications plays a key enabling role in the knowledge economy and in driving high technology industry opportunities.

It is the result of a short focused exercise drawing heavily on the expertise within the Telecoms Horizon panel.
