As 2018 draws to a close, we reflect on what has been an exciting year for Entanet and take a look back at the highlights that we’ve put into the spotlight.

Some of the key topics we’ve covered throughout the year include our compelling full fibre message which we’ve taken on the road through our ‘Shaping Britain’s Full Fibre Future’ roadshows and the launch of our exciting THRIVE! partner programme.

We’ve also had our finger on the legal pulse as we scrutinised the impact on the channel of the Investigatory Powers Act (IPA) and of course…GDPR! We would like to say a massive thank you for keeping up with our opinion blog throughout 2018. We hope you enjoy your Christmas break and look forward to your continued comments and feedback in 2019!
