Technology Development Group

The Technology Development Group (TDG) meets on a quarterly basis and is compromised of representatives from various sectors.

The flow of information is increasingly at the core of Government, Business and Residential activity. For Business, that information flow is a key enabler in an increasingly interconnected and integrated world economy. If the Falkland Island Broadband Service is to continue to enable Government, Business and Individuals to remain connected and able to exploit the internet effectively, understanding how broadband services and technology requirements may change over time is critical.

The purpose of the Technology Development Group (TDG) is to provide input to the Falkland Islands Government (FIG) on FIG and Falkland Islands business requirements and priorities for broadband in the short, medium and long term, with a particular focus on economic and social development. This will help inform FIG for the longer-term planning decisions.
