The Digital Digest: Breaking news from GTT; a world first from BT; and a special guest talks about the MEA's 300,000 tower sites


In this episode of the Digital Digest, we roundup the biggest stories of the week from breaking news out of GTT to a world first from BT.

Natalie covers the news that BT has completed 'the world’s first' trial of quantum key distribution (QKD) over hollow core fibre cable – and explains how hollow core fibre works – while in Latin America, Cable & Wireless Panamá has agreed to acquire Claro Panama.

Meanwhile, Alan brings us the breaking news from GTT – more of which can be found online here.

Joining the conversation this week we welcome Helios Towers CEO Kash Pandya. Ahead of his switch from CEO to non-executive deputy chairman of the company, Kash talks tower industry growth, new markets, D&I in Africa, and how he's going to spend his retirement.
