The Telecoms.com Podcast: Raising your voice

Scott’s finally decided to do some work in 2018 and is joined by Jamie (and his many donuts) and Iain from Light Reading. They start with a review of CES – the first big tech show of the year – and its obsession with voice-driven smart speakers. They move on to the hot topic of social media censorship and, between donuts, Jamie seems to think Scott should be censored for starters, followed by government ministers tweeting about their days out instead of running the country. The team concludes with an Iain rant about 5G, for old time’s sake, which looks set to drown out all other conversation at MWC this year.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: We care a lot

They start by trying to care about net neutrality and largely fail to do so, but they do manage to care a bit more about the prospect of Apple buying Netflix. With a heavy heart the team concludes with 5G, which they feel compelled to at least pretend they care about, except Jesse, who makes no attempt to mask his indifference.
