BROADBAND TV CONNECT ASIA 2018


Our next event in the Broadband Series will be Broadband TV Connect Asia on the 24-25 April 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand. 

With so much development taking place in Thailand and the surrounding region it is the perfect location for us to host the latest addition of Broadband TV Connect Asia and engage the South East Asian Broadband community.

The Thai government plans to invest USD1.1BN (THB38bn) to strengthen its broadband backbone, extending access across the country and increasing data speeds by more than 400%. The country’s average Broadband internet speed currently ranks 8th in Asia, and 52nd in the world, with strong ambitions to climb in the rankings.

We could not be more excited to bring the event to Bangkok and hope that you will join us there!
