The UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is funding a 5G ecosystem-building effort designed to help position the UK as a global leader in 5G mobile technology and applications. TelecomTV was there to film the launch at the iconic Post Office Tower in London where speakers presented an outline of the partnership and its goals.
The UK5G innovation network is designed to bring together interested organisations, UK researchers, technology providers, investors and vertical industries to make sure that the UK makes the most of the 5G opportunity.
