Infrastructure Acceleration – it’s all about getting the foundation right, making it easy to roll-out 5G and fibre networks.
It’s all about getting the foundations right, and in our role as arbitrators, we’re working with Mobile Network Operators, Infrastructure Providers and Local Authorities to accelerate the roll-out of 5G and fibre networks across the West Midlands.
Our knowledgeable team is built on industry know-how and a wealth of experience in the telecoms sector. Together, our efforts are accelerating the roll-out of 5G and fibre infrastructure to improve mobile coverage in both urban and suburban areas – by more than 6-12 months in some cases.
As the country’s first region-wide 5G test bed, the West Midlands’ industry-leading work on accelerating 5G deployment is creating a centre of digital excellence in the UK, allowing the West Midlands to be named as the best region for 5G coverage from an independent report. To find out how to get involved or how our team may help you please get in touch.
Our focus on barrier busting, facilitating collaboration between local authorities and mobile network operators including Infrastructure Providers, is removing obstacles and ensuring that the roll-out of 5G is smoother, quicker and can be replicated across all local authorities in the West Midlands.
