UK.gov won't Airwave bye for another 3 years, plans to phase in ESN services

As predicted, the move means the Home Office has had to ink a deal with Motorola to extend the Airwave network for three years to 31 December 2022, which the firm said was "on substantially similar terms".

The government has also extended an agreement with Motorola Solutions by 30 months to 2024, as part of its delivery of some of the ESN User Services.

So let me get this clear, we (the UK taxpayers) are paying Motorola for Airwave, and also paying Motorola for part of the replacement for Airwave?

So every year that ESN slips means another year of payments to Motorola for Airwave, plus another year of payments to implement ESN?

Well, I'm sure they're working as hard as possible to get it finished soon, right?
