Following the development of our connected map, we have identified areas of poor connectivity within the West Midlands.

Some of these areas have public assets available to utilise and WM5G has been investigating ways of encouraging deployments of shared infrastructure, whether that’s new masts or small cell networks.

WM5G has been working with DCMS to formulate guiding principles around the technical and commercial solutions that are equitable for both local authorities and operators.

If you are interested in deploying mobile networks into the West Midlands, please contact the WM5G infrastructure team.
