PEOPLE wanting to hear more about the best ways of using the internet are invited to a special event next Wednesday.

On May 30, at the stadiummk from 9:30am to 5pm, Milton Keynes Council will be hosting an event which aims to advise, inform and assist local business to make the most out of the internet.

At this event, experts will explain and demonstrate how the advances in broadband networks can improve and enhance business in the region. The upgrade to superfast fibre optic broadband currently being rolled out across the region will boost economic development and increase efficiency.

The roadshow will give advice and show how this can be implemented so that businesses can increase profit and turnover by utilising the new technology. The event will also attract property developers, members of academic institutions and other stakeholders.

Industry experts will be on hand to give free, impartial advice on the day and will assist people to explore and understand the opportunities to transform their business through local broadband access networks.

The Next Gen Roadshow has already visited other parts of the UK including York and Edinburgh and Milton Keynes is the next stop on their ‘tour’. It brings together suppliers, community stakeholders, Small or Medium enterprises (SMEs), investors and expert advisors under one roof which gives any attendee a huge opportunity to get some vital, bespoke advice for their own business.

Topics will include: • Broadband technology options - fibre, mobile, wireless, satellite • Superfast - what does it mean? • Next Generation Broadband - vision and plans for Milton Keynes • Next Generation Broadband for rural areas • Transformational tools for SMEs - social networking for business, e commerce and teleconferencing • Cloud computing • Stimulating demand for Next Generation Broadband and finance options • New applications and services - smart communities and advances in public sector services • Next Generation networks in action - case studies and local developments
