The Telecommunications Code: Practical Problems and the Digital Economy Act 2017

JUSTIN KITSON– Selborne Chambers


The seminar will consider the much criticised Electronic Communications Code as set out in Schedule 2 to the Telecommunications Act 1984 (the Code) and its replacement by the Digital Economy Act 2017. The lack of authority or statutory guidance relating to the Code makes the application of the Code particularly difficult for practitioners and the seminar will consider some of the challenges property and telecoms lawyers encounter, and its pitfalls.

Justin will:

  • Summarise the Old Code and New Code.
  • Consider the rights granted to network operators, how operators and landowners can retain or recover possession, and the relationship of the Old and New Codes with the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
  • Highlight  cases of note and offer practical practitioner tips.

Registration from 16.00 hrs
The event will be followed by drinks and networking
