Empowering businesses and residents of Worthing in West Sussex, improving user experience in specific high demand areas.


Worthing, a popular seaside town on England’s south coast, is a tale of two towns. During public holidays, and particularly throughout the summer months, the town transforms into a thriving tourist hub brimming with visitors – but as school term resumes and crowds thin out, the focus turns back to the residents and the local economy. This seasonal rollercoaster strains Worthing’s mobile network infrastructure, leaving residents, visitors, and enterprises struggling to connect during times of peak demand. 

The BEACH Project is an innovative shared 4G/5G small cell solution for Worthing designed to strengthen the town's wireless connectivity in a flexible, energy-efficient way. This project will support the local economy in Worthing, especially during its busy season, by guaranteeing the reliable connectivity needed for local initiatives and events. And as demands grow, the BEACH Project’s nimble shared architecture can scale to deliver the same high bandwidth that denser metro areas enjoy. 



Project Partners

The project is funded and supported by the UK Government Department for Science, Innovation and Technology, through its Open Network Ecosystem (ONE) initiative. The project is funded under the category of High Demand Density (HDD) Use Case Demonstrations. HDD are locations such as urban areas, airports, tourism hotspots and venues for major public or sporting events. The BEACH Project serves as a model of how governments, communities, companies, and carriers can join forces to bridge the digital divide with inclusive solutions like shared wireless network infrastructure that expands the reach of 5G.
