Laying the foundations
This year is about putting the foundations in place… to accelerate the deployment of 5G and fibre networks to create the right conditions to roll-out the digital infrastructure. The current digital landscape is inconsistent and makes it hard to do business. Our first task is to improve coverage across the West Midlands, starting in Coventry, Birmingham and Wolverhampton, and then expanding year-on-year.

WM5G is opening opportunities for innovation and experimentation, creating a hub in the region to attract talent and turn game-changing ideas and concepts into reality. We aim to attract leading entrepreneurs to the region to develop pioneering new technology. WM5G will offer a unique environment for organisations – both big and small, technology focused or not – to capitalise on the new infrastructure and partnerships to experiment with processes, products and services enabled by 5G. Ideas will be turned into opportunities, accelerating innovation while reducing risk.
