Let’s talk 5G

Superfast and reliable connectivity – New opportunities – Transforming the West Midlands

5G is the next generation of mobile technology. Put simply, 5G is really fast (5-10 times faster than 4G), it can guarantee very short delays in delivering content and enables many more devices to be connected at the same time. This is important as more and more objects become connected to the internet, such as vehicles, clothing, smart lampposts, cows (yes, really!) and much more. 5G has the potential to deliver many benefits to people, public services and businesses.

Health and care services, transport, the manufacturing and construction industries, and lifelong learning are just some of the areas that will benefit from enhanced connectivity across the public and private sectors.


Imagine 5G

5G is the next generation of mobile network technologies – but what can it deliver?


Downloading a film in seconds rather than minutes while on the move. But that’s only part of the new-look digital era as 5G unlocks new technologies that will revolutionise – and touch – all aspects of our everyday lives.


Connecting with the emergency services to get urgent remote assistance. And much more…. but the most exciting thing is we don’t even know what some of these new services and applications might look like yet.


Travelling via connected autonomous vehicles and many other use cases. What some of these will be we don’t know … because the story to 5G has only just begun.
