Announcing the 5G RuralFirst Orkney Test Locations – Part 2 | 5G RuralFirst

In my last blog I introduced a few of the tests and trials that will take place in Orkney.  In particular, I described the five locations where we will deliver high speed mobile broadband services, and details of the new broadcast over 5G trial being led by the BBC. In this blog I’ll be exploring a few more of the test sites across Orkney.

As mentioned in my previous blog we are running a research project and while we believe that each use case will be successful, there is no guarantee that they will work successfully – which is precisely why we are running these tests! As we battle through the the winter months in one of the most remote parts of the UK, we come up against uncontrollable external factors that could potentially change the outcome of the project.
