Tim Mercer — CEO of cloud-first technology firm, Vapour — joins Trenches Law for the second instalment of our barriers busting series. Penning some thoughts on the underlying challenges brought by innovation, he shares some crucial perspective on how taking a more holistic view of tech and infrastructure needs — with a closer eye on ROI — could help boost progress in the telecoms sector.
At Trenches Law, we’re committed to unlocking the benefits of high-speed connectivity across the UK. That’s why we leverage our wayleave expertise to work with telecoms companies such as WightFibre. They chose our expertise to help them roll out an ambitious £110 million fibre-optic broadband project on the Isle of Wight.
Besides much-talked about concerns such as range anxiety and high cost, progress in today’s electric vehicle (EV) roll-out is being largely hindered by lack of charging infrastructure. Without wayleave agreements in place, charge points simply can’t be installed. So, why is the market not talking about this?
As another year draws to a close, we’re still finding it hard to believe that 2023 is just weeks away! It goes without saying that the past twelve months haven’t been without challenge and uncertainty for most businesses and individuals. But in more generous measure, we’ve faced a significant number of opportunities, and achieved some monumental successes too.
