The 5G Rural Integrated Testbed (5GRIT) is a partnership of SMEs and Universities building a 5G testbed which has developed and tested innovative solutions for rural areas.

We have designed and tested amazing new services – previously not possible due to poor internet connections. We have also developed business cases trialling with rural businesses and residents.

We have built a 5G testbed for rural use cases in Cumbria, Northumberland, North Yorkshire, Inverness-shire, Perthshire and Monmouthshire, using TV White Space technology to test the potential for shared spectrum radio to deliver 5G services to rural areas.


The 5GRIT project is supported by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport through their 5G Testbeds Programme
