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

Worthing welcomes increasing numbers of visitors to our busy calendar of events. Visitors and locals support our lively economy based along the seafront and centre enjoying hospitality, shore sports, independent retailers, bars and restaurants.


Mobile network coverage is stretched when demands of increasing numbers of users outstrips available supply. For businesses this can mean disaster when customers can’t pay for their coffee or seaside treat by tapping their card.


BEACH is an exciting project to create a small cell network hosted by the local authorities and able to be shared by the Big Four mobile network operators. It will flex its  capacity to supply connectivity for all users at peak times. At times of low demand, the intelligent network will power down to save energy and support our county-wide ambition to de-carbonise by 2030.



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.
