Spread the word far and wide.

Cisco this week launched an ambitious rural 5G trial in the British Isles that includes 29 wireless industry partners to test enhanced mobile broadband, optical wireless (LiFi), radio broadcast over 5G, and agri-tech. The trial is part of Cisco’s 5G RuralFirst initiative to contribute to the business case for improving connectivity beyond cities.

The 5G project, partly funded by the U.K. government, stretches across 2,000 square kilometers (772 square miles) in and around the Orkney Isles, focusing exclusively on underserved areas termed “not spots.” The trials will also reach from the Orkney Isles north of the Scottish mainland to Somerset in southwest England, a distance of more than 1,000 kilometers (621 miles).
