£160m ploughed into 5G is a fair sum. Shame the tech doesn't really exist

Whatever the issues with 5G and fibre are, public ownership of the infrastructure is not the solution.

At this early a stage in the technology there's no reason for public subsidies either, if the telcos think they can make money out of it later let them finance the blue-sky research aspects.
