We are backed by world-class organisations

WM5G was formed by the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to deliver this pioneering programme. We are working closely with them and public sector organisations in the region:

Earlier this year, WM5G launched 5PRING – and the UK’s first 5G innovation centres – with facilities located in Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton.  The facilities will provide private and public sector organisations with the opportunity to experience 5G first-hand, enabling the development of innovative new applications and services.

5PRING is being delivered in partnership with an O2-led consortium, and supported by Wayra UK, Deloitte and Digital Catapult, and is also supported by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) Local Growth Fund.
