More digital infrastructure support to rural areas
The Government has launched a £30 million UK-wide competition in order to bring 5G to countryside rural areas. It has been announced that up to ten rural areas will be picked to have 5G trials. The innovative 5G applications being demonstrated in rural areas aims to attract commercial investment in 5G technology, even in the countryside.
Boost business growth and improve the lives of the public
5G technology has already been deployed in remote areas such as the Orkney Islands to remotely monitor salmon fisheries and improve efficiency of wind farms. Other trials have been carried out in Shropshire to demonstrate how farming can be transformed through targeted crop-spraying and soil analysis with drones and tractors.
This funding hopes to increase trials such as these and boost business growth whilst improving the lives of the general public.
