The consortium awarded a contract to run experimental 5G in Orkney has revealed more details about its tests.

There should be faster broadband to selected properties in Sanday, North Ronaldsay, St Margaret's Hope and Burray.

And there will be radio broadcasts over 5G to trial participants in Stronsay.

Cisco also says it will look at ways to improve productivity for a salmon farm, and a wind farm.

The firm is part of a consortium awarded the 5G Rural First contract in March 2018.

It will also be running trials in Shropshire and Somerset, which may include the use of autonomous agricultural vehicles.
