The Telecoms.com Podcast: It’s coming home

Iain kicks off this week with tales from Transylvania, which he recently visited to hear about all the cool things Orange Romania is working on with 5G such as fixed wireless access and smart cities. Scott then moves on to chapter 11 of the ZTE saga, in which the fraught Chinese kit vendor seems to have been offered a lifeline of sorts from by the US. The guys then move on to the content side of things and pray AT&T doesn’t ruin HBO, before concluding with a tangential review the World Cup and Wimbledon.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Social skills

There’s a cosmopolitan theme to the pod this week with Scott reflecting on his trip to Stockholm to hang out with Ericsson and Jamie looking forward with some trepidation to breakfast in China. We also hear about a recent Connected Britain event from guest podder Shannon, who also fuels a massive tangent about the pros and cons of social media. Iain ruins the jaunty mood by lamenting the continuing attrition of jobs among the world’s operators.
