Head of 5G
Rob Searle is responsible for running the team that manages the governance, planning, finance, reporting and benefit realisation for O2’s 5G transformation portfolio. He led O2’s launch of 5G in October 2019 and has since driven forward its UK-wide rollout that has reached over 180 towns and cities. Rob is managing O2’s deployment of its recently acquired new 5G spectrum, and how this will benefit the pending rollout of 5G Standalone. He is also responsible for the 5G Tests & Trials innovation programme, which has a diverse range of PoCs from smart ambulances to medical delivery drones as well as AR, VR and XR experiences, as part of O2s ‘return to live’ programme.
