Back for series 3, this episode features Melanie Mingas, editor at Capacity Media; editor-at-large, Alan Burkitt-Gray; deputy editor, Natalie Bannerman; and special guest Carl Roberts, partner at Hadaara Consulting.

In the first episode of series 3, we cover all the highlights from ITW – from global broadband to fire alarms – as well as the latest news from across the industry. And with only six weeks to go until the Global Carrier Awards, in this episode we also welcome back the Digital Digest's favourite guest, Carl Roberts.

In the headlines, Alan brings us the context behind Colt's latest contract - it is to run its IQ Network through the Channel Tunnel, linking the UK and Europe - and Natalie explains the story behind Greece's first green data centre, Sparkle's Metamorfosis II.

Joining the conversation this week Carl Roberts returns to the Digital Digest to talk about the trends that we saw in this year's shortlist, as well as what guests can expect at the live event in London next month.
