Expert think tank to consider the future of communications

An expert think tank looking at the opportunities and challenges posed by the merging of broadcasting and communications services will begin work early in the new year, Culture Secretary James Purnell and Business Secretary John Hutton announced today.

The Convergence Think Tank (CTT) will examine the implications of technological development for the media and communications industries, and the consequences for both markets and consumers.

It will have a key role in helping to shape future policy development in relation to these sectors, which include TV, radio, mobile and fixed telecoms and online services.
