Britain to create 5G city

The British government will create a ‘5G city’ in a multi million pound trial of new high speed connectivity to pave the way for a future rollout of 5G across the UK, according to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. 

The Urban Connected Communities Project, a key part of the Industrial Strategy and the next step in the government’s 5G Testbed and Trials Program, will develop a large-scale, citywide testbed for wireless 5G infrastructure.

This will include testing how new technology can make urban communities inherently safer, greener, more efficient and more attractive places to live. It is expected the winning bid will be trialing a variety of initiatives, which could include doctors and other health care professionals using real-time video consultation and remote treatment for those less able to travel.

The initiatives could also include making traffic jams and disjointed journeys a thing of the past through widespread use of sensors and real-time monitoring and management of traffic and public transport.

The initiatives could also include revolutionizing the way visitors experience tourist venues through the use of augmented and virtual reality technologies.

They could also address maintenance of manufacturing assembly lines through use of robotics and augmented reality would enable millions of measurements per second to be taken to predict when parts need replacing or rerouting to improve productivity.

Digital Minister Margot James said: "This is a huge opportunity for an urban area to become the flagship of our ambitious program to make Britain fit for the future and a world leader in 5G."
