    Building altnet value through partnerships

    The diversification of revenue streams and portfolio offerings as a route to future growth has already emerged as a reality in the UK's altnet sector. But to what extent can strategic partnerships unlock new revenue streams for altnets, and how far will alliance-based ecosystems come to redefine the full fibre provider landscape as a force for positive change and future value creation? Our panel of experts will also explore whether sector collaboration also means differentiation and competitive advantage.
