FCC dumps “net neutrality” – should the UK and the EU follow?

“Net Neutrality” has a nice homely ring to it like motherhood and apple pie. In reality “Net neutrality” is a false cure to the problem of bandwidth starvation on our wire and cellular mobile access networks. It simply results in equal misery but does not cure bandwidth starvation. But abolishing net neutrality could be a useful step in the right direction if regulators mandated a minimum “universal quality of service” at the same time.

If the cellular mobile industry worked together on a bold “INDOOR” 5G STORY at 3.6 GHz it could potentially deliver 1000 square kilometres of 5G coverage within 10 years at almost zero cost to the mobile network operators. It has the potential to cut the cost of urban 5G coverage by up to 60% in due time over today’s model that expects four competitive MNO’s to each separately provide pervasive urban coverage. Nobody in the industry believes today’s competition model will ever deliver such pervasive coverage. The problem for the government is that 5G cannot benefit what it does not cover. Only regulatory innovation can solve this.
