Broadband World Forum 2019

Last week, Minim CMO Nicole Hayward and Minim CTO Alec Rooney were in Amsterdam for the global communications' industry's largest event— the Broadband World Forum (BBWF). For the 19th consecutive year, the BBWF gathered industry professionals, network operators, solution providers, and more to share key innovations and latest happenings for the industry. Here's Nicole's play-by-play of some of the event's main highlights:
“We’re living in an interesting time with the connected home... 70% of [broadband] customers in Spain have a problem with their WiFi. That’s a problem we can fix. Fully managed solutions is an answer to that.” -Endika Miragaya, @VodafoneGroup @MinimSecure #BBWF pic.twitter.com/e3v3oaxXNj— nicole (@nicolechirps) October 15, 2019
