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

Aberdeen City should have a clause in the contract in relation to any dark fibre laid at the same time as the contract is carried out, that those dark fibres are treated as future 'public infrastructre', so Aberdeen City have ultimate say so on it's future use (and can rent it out to competing companies to BT, because (as taxpayers) we're funding this rollout of this dark fibre, BT aren't.

Yet without such a clause, BT control those dark fibres as though they are their 'own' dark fibres, when BT haven't paid anything near the full costs in order to lay them, taxpayers have.
