10th January 2019

The UK’s biggest urban areas are embracing smart city technology at a faster rate than ever, new research has claimed.

The latest Huawei UK Smart Cities Index has revealed how many of the nation’s biggest cities are using new technology across a wide range of areas.

The Index, carried out by Huawei UK and Navigant, and revealed at a launch event in London today, found that Bristol has snuck ahead of the capital to become the “smartest city”, but that the rate of innovation was at an all-time high across the nation.

Looking at 20 cities across the UK and their smart city strategies, the Index named Bristol and London as “leaders” in terms of their progress, signifying that the two areas are utilising technology faster and more effectively than others.
