What else is new ?

So, speeds won't be as promised and roaming could be compromised if governments don't play nice.

Why would governments play nice ? Communication means surveillance these days, and each country has made its own choices for that. It would be astonishing that every country would decide on the same surveillance hardware, so I suppose that there are at least two incompatible types in service.

I would be even more surprised if any country would be willing to change that hardware in order to "play nice".

So I am fully expecting governments to churn out lengthy explanations as to why The People would prefer one choice of roaming options over another, when The People would certainly prefer that It Just Works and couldn't care less about why.

Wait and see, I guess.
