What is 5G?

Superfast, reliable connectivity – Increased capacity – Low latency

5G is the latest mobile technology that the UK’s leading network operators have been rolling out since 2019. It brings greater speeds, an increased capacity and a much lower latency – opening up additional functionality for mobile services, and new opportunities for the people, businesses and public services of our region.

The fifth-generation technology can drive new possibilities within transport, health and social care services, manufacturing, and more. Our role is to help you discover those opportunities and unlock the digital potential of the West Midlands.
