It’s almost three years since the UN declared internet access as a human right. Today, a nation looking to be a global digital leader and preparing the country for the advent of IoT, seamless, high speed connectivity is non-negotiable. The connectivity of the future is 5G, says Adam Leach, director of emerging technology, Nominet. This next generation of mobile communications promises to enable a multitude of new use cases beyond our smartphones, with the potential to transform industries from agriculture through to manufacturing. Indeed, if the Internet of Things (IoT) is truly to fulfil potential and deliver far-reaching benefits, robust and consistent 5G connections must be standard nationwide.
