Join us as we approach one year since the UK Government released the UK Wireless Infrastructure Strategy.

If you wanted a comprehensive overview of what the UK government thinks about 5G and advanced wireless connectivity, the Wireless Infrastructure Strategy presented just that, with some key funding commitments, but overall – a list of ambitions that government hopes the UK’s private sector can help it achieve. 

But one year on, what has been delivered? And where have we seen progress? We will explore this and there will be a chance to feed in your insight on what more could be done to drive forward the delivery of 5G across all regions of the UK by 2030.
