Showcasing a Welsh developed 5G innovation for rural communities
5 September @ 13:30 - 17:00£25
July meeting of the UK Fibre Connectivity Forum
The Welsh Government are providing £4.2 million of funding to Bangor University’s Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Centre of Excellence to bring 5G broadband connections through fibre optic cables into harder to reach areas. The University is working with a consortium of companies to increase the capacity and enhance the sensing ability of fibre optic cables used to deliver faster and more reliable mobile broadband, and this will be trailed with more than 400 premises on Ynys Mon that do not have access to superfast broadband. The broadband delivery part of the project will last 18 months and will allow customers to be connected as soon as the first site is live and will continue through 2025. The project is also supported by Isle of Anglesey County Council and the North Wales Economic Ambition Board.
