We’re looking for the next cohort of companies to join our 5G Testbed Accelerator Programme. Designed for startups and scaleups, this 12 week programme provides access to the tools, facilities and expertise needed to discover, develop and test new products and services using 5G.

The programme offers selected organisations the opportunity:
