The team is joined once more by the incomparable Mary Clark, who is no longer living on the EDGE but still has plenty to say about roaming. With talk at the recent MWC 2017 trade show dominated by 5G they try to reel in the hype and question the return on investment from all this 5G-ness we’re supposed to be getting so excited about.

Parents don’t understand kids. Jamie finds a deep fried burger. Tim finds a beef doughnut. Scott nearly sneezes. Jamie gets surprisingly annoyed by a pointless IoT-shirt. Scott gets a bit condescending, and Tim storms off.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Meet The New Boss

Tim, Jamie and Ray have all abandoned Scott this week, but Iain Morris from Light Reading is still in town to make sure Mr. Bicheno doesn’t end up rambling into a microphone on his own for 45 minutes. The two of them chew the fat about Ericsson and Cisco’s ludicrously friendly relationship. Elsewhere, Trump gets to work on… whatever an unexpected President does; and a long and expensive investigation into the exploding Note7 concludes it was down to a faulty battery… well no sh!t…

The Telecoms.com Podcast – The Moment of Truth

The Week In Wireless posse sees Tim debatably upgraded to Ray from Light Reading for the time being. The plucky telecoms hacks soldier on regardless and discuss the apparent moment of truth faced by their industry, which faces the prospect of connectivity costing more to deliver than it makes in revenue. In an attempt to lighten things up they then talk about some of the shininess unveiled at CES, but soon fall out over connected fridges. They sign off by looking at the task faced by Ericsson’s new CEO and wish him good luck – he’ll need it.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: IoT Saves the Day
