Attention whoring brings you friends and political fortune
Jesus Christ, I'm still not even at 2.5G, WTF?
"For the next global standard, and the next generation of technology, will Europe lead the world, or merely follow?"
I can answer that now already.
"Will future ubiquitous ultra-high bandwidth communication infrastructure, also known as 5G, be pioneered by European industry, based on European research, creating European jobs? Or will global competitors get there first – and, by the way, many of them are already investing heavily."
Jesus Christ. Mercantilist much? I imagine the "IP homesteading" faggotry that goes on in these affairs really puts the red-hot point of a branding iron onto a sensitive skin part, but still...
Any particular "european industry" that hasn't yet sold off its assets and/or is basically state-owned which might apply? Do I smell sweetheart deals?
