AM welcomes 5G pilot scheme

MONMOUTH AM Nick Ramsay has asked how the Welsh Government plans to work with the UK Government in trialling the 5G broadband technology as part of an exciting pilot scheme in Monmouthshire.

Raising the issue during last week’s Business Statement in the Senedd, Mr Ramsay said he welcomed the decision to pilot the 5G technology in Monmouthshire describing it as 'a great opportunity.'

“It is important that the UK and Welsh Governments work together to ensure that if the trial is successful, 5G broadband can be rolled out as quickly as possible across Wales or other bespoke solutions developed.

“The roll-out of 5G promises to be a massive step forward for mobile network technology and of particular benefit to rural communities,” he said.
