The UK’s National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) today published its report on the next (fifth) generation of mobile technology – 5G – setting out what the UK needs to do to become a world leader in 5G deployment. Frontier (Europe) was commissioned by the NIC produce a report outlining how investors could be incentivised to invest in 5G infrastructure, which was one of the inputs to the NIC’s report.
The report explains that 5G networks will support the ever larger data requirements of the existing network and new applications from augmented reality to connected vehicles and the Internet of Things, and many more, as unknowable today as the 4G services we take for granted would have been a decade ago. The Commission makes recommendations on how government can play an active role to ensure that mobile services are available wherever we live, work and travel, and our roads, railways and city centres and that these networks are made 5G ready as quickly as possible.
Frontier regularly advises regulators and telecommunication providers on issues relating to facilitating and incentivising investment in telecommunications technologies.
