The West Midlands has been selected to become the innovative home to the UK’s first multi-city 5G testbed, with the region to pilot new high-speed connectivity applications and services at scale, including the real-world testing of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

The Urban Connected Communities Project, the next step in the UK government’s 5G Testbed and Trials Program, will develop a large-scale, 5G pilot across the region, with hubs in Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton, paving the way for the future roll-out of 5G across the UK.

Up to £50m (US$64.6m) is currently available for the project, subject to further development and approval of the business plan. This includes £25m (US$32.3m) from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and a further £25m match funding from regional partners.
