Guidelines for editorial coverage

What type of news and content is Capacity looking for?

We encourage companies to share all their latest developments, views and opinions on the wholesale marketplace.

Our coverage is truly global, and we welcome news items from every market across the globe.

We cover a wide range of issues facing the industry, but below is a general overview of the areas we regularly cover:

  • Latest M&A activity, network expansions and infrastructure investments  
  • New products or services
  • Emerging technologies and trends (such as SDN, NFV, 400G, M2M and security)
  • C-level appointments
  • Regulatory developments

Alternatively, if you feel you have a strong opinion or view on a recent development or trend in the market, we encourage you to contact the editorial team to schedule a more in-depth interview.

We also encourage you to regularly check our editorial schedule and look out for topics that match your company’s activities. 

Why choose Capacity as the exclusive platform for sharing your company's news and developments?

Capacity aims to be the breaking news source for the wholesale telecoms community.

By sharing embargoed press releases or company news with us, we can ensure your story is delivered to a more relevant audience. By providing us with a news item one to two weeks in advance, we are able to review thoroughly, offer feedback and schedule a follow-up interview if required.

If you are hoping to release your news at a particular Capacity conference, we encourage you to check the Capacity conference schedule and contact the editorial team one to two weeks in advance.


How can I ensure my company receives the best possible coverage?

News items or interviews are selected strictly according to editorial merit. However, to make your story stand out from the crowd, we urge you to think about how your company’s development has impacted the market. Feedback from customers or analysts can help support your story, as can financial details or a timeline of events.

Providing as much opinion and comment as possible helps to build a more complete story.

Any relevant high-resolution images (300 dpi or above) to accompany the story are also welcome.


Do you accept contributed articles?

Capacity does not directly publish contributed articles online or in print. However, our Capacity Voice blog is a popular place for the market to share their views and opinions. Examples can be found here.

Blog entries must be on a recent industry trend and should be kept neutral (we do not allow companies to promote services or products).

The advised word count is 250-400 words, and we also require an image of the author.
