Who we are

We help simplify the benefits of tech and digitalisation

Thanks for stopping by…

We are a brand new innovation and digital acceleration company, born from a 3-year DCMS funded programme to accelerate the roll out of 5G and be the lead partner of the DCMS 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme.

In March 2022 this project came to an end and we are now using the case studies and learnings from the testbed trials to benefit organisations primarily in the connectivity, transport, manufacturing and healthcare sectors.

Despite our name, WM5G doesn’t only help accelerate the benefits of 5G, we also help businesses innovate and become future fit through connectivity solutions, Internet of Things and AI.

Get in touch to find out more.


WM5G has delivered a number of projects to speed up the launch of 5G networks and test, prove and scale up new 5G products and services – for local people, public services and businesses.

WM5G have worked in partnership with public and private sector organisations to deliver these projects.

WM5G is now using this established credibility to support businesses on their own digital journey.

How we delivered real benefits for the West Midlands…

Our test and trials projects as part of the DCMS and WMCA funded programme included projects in the areas of health and social care, transport and manufacturing. From connected ultrasound to self-drive vehicles, WM5G is opening up new pathways of possibility through 5G.

WM5G is also working in partnership with local authorities and mobile network providers to accelerate the roll-out of 5G and fibre networks, a crucial part of delivering strong signal coverage.

We’ve already made great headway, the  West Midlands and Birmingham have reaped the rewards of WM5G’s Infrastructure Acceleration programme and have been ranked highest in a new 5G mobile coverage study by an independent telecoms advisory company.

The study analysed 5G coverage across the UK’s Combined Authority areas and placed the West Midlands first for 5G coverage, whilst Birmingham also ranked highest for 5G coverage among the top six cities in England and Scotland – according to the Umlaut Audit Report, 5G Coverage in the UK 2021.

WM5G is all about delivering real benefits for people and businesses and strengthen the West Midlands’ position as the hub of the UK’s 5G ecosystem.

WM5G is here to: Explore – Accelerate – Sustain


Using 5G and connectivity solutions to make a real and positive difference to the people, communities and businesses.


Accelerate the adoption of 5G technology to bring opportunities and improvements to the West Midlands and beyond.
