  • Telefónica UK (O2) brought its customers to Millbrook to experience 5G on the move and to drive better business outcomes in 2019 and beyond
  • A full day of activities for 100 delegates included connectivity and virtual and augmented reality demonstrations, workshops and tours of Millbrook Proving Ground

Telefónica UK held an event for its customer community at Millbrook Proving Ground on the 9th July 2019 as part of its engagement programme. The delegates experienced 5G connectivity and took part in a variety of workshops, including demonstrations of augmented and virtual reality.

The event took place in Millbrook’s Concept 1 conference venue, situated at the heart of the 700-acre site, famous for its test tracks and driving experiences. As a new partner in the AutoAir consortium, Telefónica UK is integrating its network with the AutoAir network at Millbrook, so that it can be used to provide access for O2 customers and Millbrook’s private users. The delegates were invited on a tour of the test tracks, including the High Speed Circuit and Hill Route, to experience the private 5G-enabled network on the move.            

I cannot imagine a better location for our first customer community event. Millbrook’s venue and track facilities are unique in the UK. We had everything we needed to make the event a success and allow our customers to imagine their connected future to drive better business outcomes.Katy Liddell, Managing Director at Enterprise
