Re: Government Backing
@shaunn:

Absolutely. I wasn't meaning even remotely in sense of possible 'slack off'. My thinking was more towards ease of regulatory restrictions later in the process if Govt is engaged late in the game.

Re: Government Backing
The UK market for broadband is definitely unlike the US. There are some sensible regulations that the UK just implements that the US constantly bickers about. Net neutrality is just one example.

Re: UK Backs 5G
@Liz I've thought the same about the US and regulation. We do have an awful lot of regulation to manage, however. Nagivating the regulation maze can be very difficult.

Re: UK Backs 5G
I think American's have in some ways anymore, been trained to fear regulation. And it can without a doubt get out of hand. But regulations are also what keep your drinking water from being drinkable (and even with them we seem to have trouble with this.) But a lot of regulations exist for a reason, without them your 4-year-old might have to go to work daily at a factory, people could sell you an item claiming it's one thing when it's really another and not have to face any penalties. A 10-year-old could drive a car. Regulations aren't a bad thing. Everything in moderation.

Re: UK Backs 5G
Im kind of in the middle when it comes to the government getting involved. In some ways I think it could help the process. However, in other ways, I think the government getting too involved will make everything too regulated.

Re: Government Backing
I think in the UK, where a lot of media has traditionally been government backed, they have learned to make things work. In fact, the UK in a lot of ways is far less restricted than we are over here. I still remember my young American shock at seeing my very first "Red Nose Day" ad on a billboard in London.

Re: Government Backing
I see what you mean. Although there could be room to slack off, the team can still work hard. If they started with only profits to fund their work, receiving government funds later could slow work down as result of less concern for profit and thus urgency.

Re: Government Backing
I hear what you are saying. But i think having goverment engaged early on may help out eventually. I don't mean to say that this way companies get to relax regarding regulations and policies, which is not true. But atleast government is engaged in the whole process and so in future they can't start intervening in the middle with all possibile ways which can cause more damage. Look at what FB is going through now.
