One access number per country going to one single call centre is the stuff of every after-sales helpline everywhere.

But that's beside the point. The point is safety regs aren't being enforced because Government doesn't like to interfere in stuff it doesn't understand and you can see it doesn't understand anything about the Internet in almost every committee or debate about this and by extension they don't understand anything which uses obviously uses the Internet, even though behind the scenes practically everything does.

They can't see startups like this are just straight breaking the law and they can't see this is leading to the general impoverishment of the population. They think they look better if they say they're dynamic and disruptive and market forces.

Any improvement with anything which involves apps, the Internet, people's data, or IoT will have to be framed as a tax or cost argument, which they do understand.
