5GRIT April Newsletter

    Newsletter Published on 17 Apr 2019

The 5GRIT project has been granted a 6- month extension, by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) allowing for further development of the rural broadband, tourism, farming, and UAS use cases. We are already learning a lot in these areas, but the extension gives the opportunity to show real benefits in key months for both tourism and arable and livestock farming.

Importantly, the next 6 months will cover the peak tourist season in the North Pennines, allowing partners to further measure the benefits of 5G in the region through the uptake and usage of the new tourism apps.
