MOA Chairs Scottish Government Mobile and Wireless Discussion Panel

18 June 2013


In May, John Cooke, Executive Director, Mobile Operators Association chaired a discussion event for the Scottish Government, looking at the role of mobile and wireless technologies in meeting its ambition for Scotland to be a world-class digital nation by 2020.


The Government’s strategy aims to create a future-proofed digital infrastructure that supports any device, anywhere, anytime connectivity across Scotland. It believes that mobile and wireless technologies will have a significant role to play in this, complementing fixed-line connectivity.


John Cooke, Executive Director of the Mobile Operators Association said: “It was excellent to be part of the Scottish Government’s Digital Dialogue programme. Good digital connectivity is vital for Scotland’s society and for sustainable economic growth. Mobile network operators are working to enhance their networks, which will help achieve the ambitions set out in Scotland’s Digital Future.”
