Fleccy that’s a link I shared. I realise you are Brexit voter but try and keep up. My response was existing frequencies = not line of site - Samsung are doing pure flipping magic with their interpretation & costs and business case is what slows 5G bb rollout not the technology. I.e. the technology is perfectly capable of doing the job.
Fleccy that’s not quite correct. 5G especially within U.K. spectrums is not strictly line of sight. Also Samsung equipment delivering bb to the home with Verizon currently sells itself on not being any kind of line of sight. However Verizon have been offering these services commercially fir quite some time. The product apparently is excellent, but the last article I read strongly suggested they couldn’t make it pay. Which has been the case in other 5G fixed bb deployments. I won’t attach a link, because you can go find it yourself if interested. PS one of the advantages of 5G over 4G is the number of simultaneous registrations / active users. For 4 G this is 10’s of thousands for 5G this is many millions.......... I think the point is the technology will deliver, it’s the business case and current costs that are the reason why 5G will not yet seriously challenge fixed line bb. Not for a while anyway.
Avrohom instead of bemoaning your BT investment you should have been reassessing your investment strategy, if it matters that much to you. There’s plenty of money to be made out of BT, if you haven’t managed to benefit, it’s down to you. Soo we you accept that better off you & the rest of us will be
Constant complaining about BT share ownership is getting a bit sad now. As far as I know BT hasn’t held anyone hostage. If you’ve lost money either theoretical or real, no one cares. Avrohom it’s your money, your choices and you’ve been responsible for how you have managed your portfolio. Plenty of others are making a fortune from Bt shares or doubling up on their bet at no cost.
RE: Orange sold remaining stake in BT28 Jun 2019 11:18
Are DT still spending all their money in the US ? Was it sprint? Also looking at the orange sell part of the story suggests they need the money to compete in their local market rather than particularly wanting to divest in BT
Hey Avrohom, I wouldn’t be so bold as to say BT is a good investment opportunity at the moment, that depends on your investment strategy more than anything. Personally I see the price as low now, I think it will recover next couple of years, although I have no idea how Brexit May skew this view. I have a large number of shares now, buying on the way down, so my money is where my mouth is. I sell bits on the way down & buy bits on way up, but majority stays invested. I’m happy to wait for a recovery but prepared to pull everything out to protect capital should it drop too far, couple of weeks ago nearly triggered that!!!! But I would invest straight back in should it recover .
Avrohom, I would think about EVRAZ now personally, it’s been a good run. My comment was in response to our village idiot troll. He was stupidly suggesting (as normal) that only a div would buy BT at a pound or below. I was simply pointing out the investing opportunity last time it dropped below a £1. Just a quick point you are making. You’re not pointing out what a bad investment opportunity BT is, to the contrary you are pointing out how good an opportunity BT is / was but how badly you & others have invested..... I prefer to discriminate between those 2 things.
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.
