The Telecoms.com Podcast: A little ray of sunshine

This week’s pod had to battle the odds to take place at all, with Jamie and Iain both on holiday and Telecoms Towers undergoing refurbishment, but Ray from Light Reading found a window in his hectic schedule to keep Scott company. First we heard about Ray’s trip to sunny Valencia to learn all about the state of European fibre. He expressed frustration at the apparent lack of urgency in building fibre to the building as it’s as important piece of infrastructure as any and the potential returns on investment are considerable. Then Scott explores a move that definitely hasn’t yielded any ROI as Nokia looks to move out of the digital health business only a couple of years after buying Withings for its expertise in that area. They finish with a reminder to make sure you download our MWC 2018 preview special before you fly out to Barcelona.
