This community of ecosystem stakeholders is independent of government and led by the private sector to help in delivering the potential of full 5G roll-out to consumers, businesses and wider society. 5G technology promises radically faster download speeds, increased network reliability and will enable advanced technologies including Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IOT) and driverless/autonomous vehicles.

The TLA 5G Working Group is hosted by EMEA data centre experts, Interxion. It is also open to telephony experts, fibre operators, local authorities, equipment manufacturers, enterprises, startups and analysts. The inaugural members will convene to set the agenda for this not-for-profit community and hear from a number of industry leaders to understand the current state of 5G technology in the UK. The event will aim to address the disconnect between Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) claiming 5G networks are already accessible in major UK cities and the realities, challenges and solutions available to transform 5G connectivity for mass economic benefit throughout the UK.
