"£3 Billion is out by an order of magnitude it'll still be cheaper and more useful"

What is the scenario where you think it will be of use? Any phone you buy will be able to use GPS from the US, Russia, China and the EU. It can do so because the silicon and software loaded into it when it was made in China. What's in it for the manufacturer to also include the effort needed to support any UK based system? It just isn't needed. It's stuff all use for the military too. What's being discussed only covers the UK so you can't make any use of it to carry out a precision bombing mission elsewhere in the world.
