Connecting people and ‘things’ in forgotten rural communities of North Yorkshire using 5G.

The remote Tupgill Park in North Yorkshire

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) funded Mobile Access North Yorkshire (MANY) project will explore how 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) technology can have a positive impact on rural communities and aims to boost connectivity in remote areas of North Yorkshire that have traditionally been hard to reach.

aql will help deliver a 5G core mobile operator capability with roaming to enable superfast mobile connectivity, and an IoT Accelerator. The deployment of next generation 5G with IoT capabilities will help support remote communities in North Yorkshire to drive tourism, tackle social isolation and develop early warning systems for flooding emergencies.
