Bishop Auckland digital – 5G enabled town

In setting the vision for Bishop Auckland in 2035, the Board are aware of the rate of progress and opportunities that new technology can provide. To maximise these opportunities, we are looking to develop a high capacity, high speed data network across the town and surrounding areas. Initially linking public buildings, schools and visitor attractions the network will provide the basis to develop new digital services for the town. It also links with the digital focus of the skills and enterprise programmes to encourage jobs in the digital and technology sectors.
