NEON DEBATE: DIGITAL DUNDEE
Dundee is the first city in Scotland to lose its analogue television signal and go all digital. Dundee is also to become Scotland’s first Fibrecity®.
Dundee is a modern, forward looking city and has to consider ‘Digital Dundee’ as a whole. It needs to identify ways it can harness e-technology to improve leisure, business processes and increase their competitive advantage.
At this debate, we will be asking the questions: Does Dundee need a digital strategy? Should it continue to develop organically? What would a world-class broadband wireless technical infrastructure do for the city?
Along with industry specialists and key professionals from the city we will discuss what the advantages and/or disadvantages are for ‘going digital’.
