Why dont they transmit the signal down your electricity feed? plug your router in and hey presto your connected, or how about your router also transmits for your neighbour, or is there limits on how close you can stand to a transmitter before you grow a second head or your lungs start to melt.

How disappointing. You’re usually so keen to try to show everyone how clever you are.

I don't understand the technicalities of 5G, but I believe the technology uses a technique called Massive Mimo using lots of antennas, possibly in conjunction with beam forming. The antennas will be spaced 1/2 wavelength apart and the theory is that multiple users will be have access to high speed data connection. Now it all sounds good, in theory, but i'm sceptical about the real life results when the cells are stressed with large amounts of data. I'm guessing issues will arise relating to obstacles, reflections and possible issues due to atmospheric conditions. The cells will have to have enough backhaul capacity to deal with the data demands of all users and be reliable. Your WiFi router is in your house, so it only has to deal with a small area, the 5G cells will have to deal with multiple static users going on and offline, with demand fluctuating throughout the day. The cells wont be cheap to maintain, and will require space for backhaul network equipment, as well as the transmitting and receiving equipment. The articles promoting this sound great, but it seems like an expensive setup to me. Around city centres, Fibre will be routed back to the exchanges and unaffected by external conditions and requires no further action for years, unless disturbed. I suspect that 5G cells will require a lot of maintenance and may not completely live up to expectations, time will tell.
I get that some people want to play down BT's UK dominance, but BT have it covered from all angles.

Isn't one of the benefits of 5G that as long as there is signal it works well no matter how many people are connected to the network? I'm not an engineer so not sure.

It wont compete with Fibre, they would need a cell on every street corner and the delay would be horrendous if all users decided to stream HD movies at the same time. I suspect it will be a niche product, not a game changer.

Hey Pete yes you’re riight 3 are little disrupters, but this move is quite a thing, probably couple of years too early for other operators who are still investing in fibre. I’ve been watching this product in the states from Verizon, as far as I can tell it’s working well, delivering amazing speeds.

Can’t be a big surprise to BT that 3 are doing this Aus. It’s what they’ve done to grab share historically and without something like this for 5g they’d likely be forgotten by consumers and disappear into history in terms of the UK market.

Gravity?
Tue 23:23
So this has been like a yo-yo over the last few months, generally fluctuating between around 2 to 2.30 (and slightly lower a couple of weeks back).
Any thoughts on whether it’s headed back to 2.30 and beyond now, or is gravity going to kick in and hold it back again?

Pacey I think you miss the point, swapping high value retail customers for low value wholesale back haul is bad for BT all round& 3 started unlimited 4G first so why not 5G ?

People just use the likes of vipbox for free sport etc these days,cant see how BT are going to compete against that and should basically just stick to providing broadband for everyone.

RE: Compulsory Redundancies
9 Jun '19
Interesting,is this 2nd or 3rd hand info again.The memo/14 page doc I read last Wednesday mentioned it would be done by voluntary release package first and for most,and if there were any needed compulsory redundancies,an enhanced leaver package would apply..so still voluntary..Bt have to pay 2yrs money if its a compulsory redundancy due to the new pension rules package we signed up for last year..They wont want to do this but would at a push then offer at least 2yrs if we agreed to go..which we would.I don't want to get too excited at the opportunity to leave as I have had so many false alarms its almost normal now to ignore them.Agreed with previous posters it will be the oldies.B2 C2 and C3 and D1 grades that will be targeted.new starters have nothing to fear as they are recruiting over 6000 of them as front-line staff anyway.Its us old duffers they want rid of!

RE: Compulsory Redundancies
9 Jun '19
IT was bound to happen at some time. There have been managed exits for the last 15-18 years, starting at 2 years money now around 9 months for most. So the same people will be the target, experienced C3 D1 grades with years of experience, that now counts for nothing, it's a shame. Still threw will most likely get around the same amount of cash if made redundant say 6-9 month without tax, dependent on service. To be honest most will be glad of the release as they have just been waiting for the day they become a target anyway.. The only thing that may be an issue is if they are unable to take there pension when leaving, not sure how that would work if not part of a release package.

5G network expected to fuel Growth
9 Jun '19
The surging demand for video streaming services will drive a £10bn growth in the UK’s entertainment and media sector over the next five years, according to a report published today.
The booming industry is set to be worth £80bn in 2023, up from the £70bn projected for this year, according to professional services firm PwC.
The growing range of on-demand video platforms will be a key driver of growth, the report stated, as broadcasters and tech giants line up to launch their own streaming services to rival Netflix Subscription video-on-demand currently pulls in revenue of £900m, but new services such as Britbox, the joint venture between ITV and the BBC, will boost this figure to £1.3bn by 2023.
The UK’s nascent 5G network is expected to fuel this growth, with consumers forecast to use more internet data than any other country in western Europe over the next four years.
“The industry is underpinned by consumer demand for new, high quality content, that is accessible and highly personalisable,” said Mark Maitland, UK head of entertainment and media at PwC.
“The UK remains a leading market in terms of talent, reputation and innovation, and has seen significant levels of financial investment as a result.”
The report revealed internet advertising will account for a quarter of all revenue in the entertainment and media sector by 2023, generating roughly £20bn.
This will be boosted by the continued popularity of mobile formats, which are expected to make up nearly three-quarters of all internet advertising in five years’ time.
Overall, the UK’s entertainment and media sector will grow at a pace of 3.5 per cent per year, and will be second only to Germany in western Europe for total revenue.

BT in talks with ITV over Britbox
9 Jun '19
BT is reportedly in discussions over a potential multi-million-pound investment in Britbox, the joint streaming service by ITV and the BBC set to be launched later this year.
The telecoms firm has held preliminary talks with ITV about taking a stake in Britbox and helping to fund exclusive dramas produced in the UK, the Sunday Telegraph reported.
The talks are at an early stage and the investment may not come to fruition, according to the report, with disagreement over the valuation of the service slated as a possible risk.
The investment would mark a significant development in a new strategy unveiled by BT boss Philip Jansen, who took over from Gavin Patterson earlier this year.
Jansen has outlined plans to frame BT as a “national champion”, and is hoping to turn around the company’s fortunes after a share price drop of roughly 50 per cent over the last three years.
The new boss has already launched the firm’s new logo and has announced BT will close 90 per cent of its offices across the UK as it looks to cut £1.5bn in costs.The mooted investment would also align with BT’s strategy of becoming a “super aggregator”, offering customers access to a range of different streaming services through its set-top box.
BT already has a partnership with the BBC and ITV through the Youview platform, which operates on BT TV. But it is unlikely BT would commit to any investment until the two broadcasters have agreed on the terms for their new streaming service.Talks between ITV and the BBC have reportedly stalled, with the commercial broadcaster thought to be more committed to the venture than the corporation, which is also planning an overhaul of its iPlayer service.
