Roadmap to 5G

For London to lead the digital revolution it needs fast, reliable, and universal mobile and broadband connectivity. London First and Mobile UK, with the help and expertise of Gowling WLC, have come together to explore how to improve digital roll-out in London. We have focused on setting out what operators, London’s government and boroughs need to do improve digital connectivity

with priorities and funding developed and agreed with input from government, business and the wider population.
