Accelerating 5G Innovation & Adoption Across the UK
The 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme (5GTT), part-funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), looks to harness areas where the UK has a competitive advantage – such as in scientific research, engineering talent and our rich variety of technology businesses - to enable us to take a leading role in 5G development.
The Programme explores the benefits and challenges of deploying 5G technologies in line with the following key objectives:
Across the Programme, over 30 projects are operating in 34 counties across 13 regions across the UK, with around 200 project partners. These projects are exploring 140+ 5G use cases accelerating 5G adoption in targeted sectors (including agriculture, utilities, automotive, transport and logistics).
In addition to adoption projects, the programme has supported 15+ projects testing new access technologies and equipment vendors in a range of trials to help broaden and secure the UK’s telecom supply chain in line with the government’s diversification strategy.
