About this event

     5G has the potential to increase mobile broadband services speed, capacity and coverage significantly, while using the same networks to connect large numbers of Internet of Things devices and support new mission-critical and safety of life services with high reliability and guaranteed latency. All parts of the UK economy and public services have the potential to be transformed by the coming technology and 5GIC looks forward to helping the Government realise its vision.

     The government has announced that it will invest over £1 billion in our digital infrastructure to catalyse private investment in fibre networks and to support 5G trials to invest in full-fibre broadband and trialling 5G networks. Investment will support the private sector to roll out more full-fibre broadband by 2020-21. Funding will also support trials of 5G mobile communications.
