The issue of next-generation broadband development will be discussed in Nottingham next week.
A Next Generation Broadband Roadshow will come to the East Midlands, allowing firms in the area to get an overview of the steps being taken to provide fibre-optic cable broadband in the area.
The occasion will be held on Monday, March 21st by the Community Broadband Network along with the Accelerate Nottingham group.
"Nottingham is working very hard on bringing high-speed broadband to businesses and the community," said Peter Goodwin of Connected Nottingham, an offshoot initiative from Accelerate Nottingham.
"The interim Digital Britain report sets out some clear objectives and during the event we will showcase our latest plans for the city and the region and explain the wider economic benefits."
Mr Goodwin was referring to the Digital Britain report released by Lord Carter, which set out the vision for universal 2Mb broadband in the UK, as a foundation for future fibre-optic networks.
