    Three calls for wider 5G FWA deployment in rural UK
    Operators around the UK are rolling broadband infrastructure at an impressive pace, battling to meet the government target of reaching 85% of UK premises by 2025.
    Fixed line, or fibre, is significantly more difficult to roll out than FWA, which only needs a mobile signal to operate. It's time for a greater consideration of a wider pool of technology, particularly FWA, to help those in rural areas have access to faster internet and ultimately help reduce the digital divide- said David Hennessy, CTO of Three UK and Ireland.
