Digital Connectivity Infrastructure Accelerator

The Digital Connectivity Infrastructure Accelerator will allocate up to £4 million of funding to pilots which support the implementation of digital asset management solutions for mapping and brokerage of publicly owned assets for use in the rollout of wireless communication networks.

The accelerated rollout of advanced wireless networks, including 5G, will bring benefits to the UK economy and communities across the country.

There are a number of challenges in the deployment of wireless networks, and this project specifically explores those involved in using publicly owned infrastructure assets to support the roll out of advanced wireless connectivity (this could include, for example, putting 5G equipment into street lights).
