Communications Infrastructure and Services Group

World-leading communications infrastructure underpins the UK’s aim of an open digital economy. Communications networks are the life-blood of the UK’s digital applications and services, and a key component of this ambition will be in incentivising investment and innovation. techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Programme brings together FTSE 100 companies and SMEs from across the sector - fixed, wireless, mobile, satellite operators, equipment suppliers - to advocate a connected future for all.

The home of telecoms infrastructure deployment at techUK, covering fixed and mobile infrastructure. The Group focuses on the uptake of the deployment of fibre and radio, including 5G, networks through engagement and collaboration with local authorities, working with techUK’s Local Government Programme, creating a forum all stakeholders to convene and share knowledge and best practice.

Advanced Communications Services Working Group

Previously known as the 5G Ecosystem, this working group examines the opportunities and benefits advanced communications services can offer to different industry verticals, such as manufacturing, transport, health and social care, media and agriculture. We take a technology neutral approach to exploring this ecosystem, acknowledging that user requirements remain front and centre in delivering telecoms services, rather than prescribe an architecture or solution.
