UK Backs 5G
I'm not sure about the Government getting into things to me the less governement the better but as far as 5G I think they should take advantage of it because it will be very useful for them especially for people living in foreign countries like the UK/United Kingdom.

Government Backing
Being backed by the government may backfire on the taskforce. Not for any political reason--government gets involved in all sorts of things when it comes to the UK--but because the government has the power to support a failing operation.

In the free market, a buisness must get better when it's failing in order to continue existing, but if a government provides funds in place of profits, an inferior operation can get away with being second or third rate. If the task force is backed in that way, I wouldn't expect much from it as 5G progresses.

Re: UK Backs 5G
Right now this seems like research and maybe some lobbying versus direct government intervention.

Re: UK Backs 5G
I personally think Government backing should help companies when you think about regulatory requirements. If government is engaged that becomes less hurdleful ordeal. This is just ne quicky that came to my mind.

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.

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 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: 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: 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.
