EDGE as sharp as WCDMA?

This might stir up a hornets’ nest, but this consultant chap, Carl Howe, has a point. It’s not all about bandwidth when it comes to mobile ‘broadband’, if the combination of device software and hardware is sluggish, then the web experience will also be. If EDGE is capable enough to deliver in terms of latency, then ‘full fledged’ 3G becomes a little redundant for the average user. So criticism of the European iPhone because of its lack of 3G might be a little premature.

Never mind the speed, feel the bandwidth! Anyway, we’re all getting bored of the iPhone now. I think I’m just writing about it out of habit.

Do you agree public funding should be used to support mobile operators to more broadly deploy Open RAN?
