Policymakers around the world are promoting the development and roll out of superfast or next generation broadband networks. Rather less attention is given to how these networks might be used. This paper describes the approach developed in the ‘Infinite Bandwidth, Zero Latency’ project to engage diverse stakeholders in the generation of ideas for future applications, and forming consortia around selected ideas to develop them, to date, to the stage of feasibility study proposals. The project is based around the Imagine/Triple Task method of participative engagement.
