The DCMS has been undertaking a range of workshops across the UK (June 17-25th) to help inform an expected funding call to stimulate R&D around 5G in rural areas. This funding call is subject to ministerial approval.

In the workshops, many organisations have asked for a way of finding potential consortium partners in preparation of submitting a proposal.

If you'd like to use UK5G to do this, please post in this thread:

- Your organisation's name

- Your proposal area of focus

- What your organisation can offer

- What capabilities/skills your require from a partnership.

Please come back to this thread to check posts from others.



UK5G’s mission is to Educate, Collaborate and Innovate.

  • To overcome the digital divide in rural and sub urban areas is one of the objectives of the European Commission H2020 TWEETHER project I coordinated (

    TWEETHER is a point to multipoint system at 92 - 95 GHz to distribute up to 3.5 Gigabit per second per kilometer square of area capacity over sector of more 1km and 90 degrees angle. It can serve hundreds of houses or business with tens of Mb/s data rate.

    It is design to provide 99.99% availability in ITU rain zone K.

    It has a much lower TCO in comparison to any system presently available for the same capacity and it is easy to deploy. By varying the antenna angle it is possible to provide the widest number of coverage options.

    The first prototype was successfully tested in real environment, with TRL 5. The next step is to bring it to TRL 7.

    For more info please read the TWEETHER Final Public Report or contact me
