5G Testbeds & Trials Programme July 2019 Update

    Report Published on 11 Jul 2019


The 5G Testbeds & Trials (5GTT) Programme continues to work towards our ambitious targets and, through some excellent projects, is now demonstrating the value 5G will bring to the UK economy.

The 5GTT Programme remains a fundamental part of DCMS Digital strategy by supporting the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review (FTIR) which was published last summer and, previous to that, the 5G Strategy, announced in the Government’s Industrial Strategy in 2017.

The 5G TT programme will work to establish what policy interventions are needed to deliver

on the Government future connectivity objectives, the FTIR sets out the framework and

conditions necessary to underpin investment and innovation in 5G, and deliver the

Government manifesto commitment to have 5G coverage for the majority of the UK by 2027. 1

The purpose of this publication is to provide an update on the progress made by the 5GTT Programme in delivering projects that drive towards its targets and objectives.
