Our new partnership with BAI Communications will create the most advanced UK Smart City and accelerate Sunderland’s 2030 ambition to be a connected international destination with potential for all.

With opportunities ready to be realised, the positive impacts of this new joint venture on health, education, industry and everyday life are immeasurable. Together we will establish the 5G infrastructure- a key enabler for Sunderland, our super-connected smart city.

In order to make a difference to everyone’s lives, we need to take this new infrastructure to every house and every business in the city – and that’s what we’re doing, together. By creating a network of networks, we will connect people and places, reduce the digital divide and heighten opportunities for all.
