It's not before time too although the urban people will be enjoying 5G before the deadlines mentioned in the report.


Nice to see you around again @adamtemp64 grin

Re: Could this be the end of rural notspots

A shared nationwide RAN would make sense these days (operated by a company mutually owned by the operators) with them competing on services and price.


It would also cut down on the cost of site selection and build as the cost would be shared.

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)
