Not the end, just the beginning...

As customers, partners and colleagues return home, dispersing across the globe I reflect on a busy week at Mobile World Congress. This is the biggest event in the global calendar for the mobile industry and one of the highlights for me was Neelie Kroes, Vice President of the European Commission’s Digital Agenda, speaking this week to announce a Mobile Action Plan for Europe. The UK has just completed its 4G spectrum license sale and discussions are already underway about 5G across Europe...


When you attend Mobile World Congress it’s easy to get caught up in the bubble, so for “other news” from the outside world I watch BBC Breakfast for a few minutes each morning. In this seemingly innocuous week in February every year, the topics of mobile and mobility are certainly BIGGER than ever, but when even BBC News covers Mobile World Congress for at least five minutes each morning, you know it is starting to become mainstream. This is not a show just for the tech geeks, it really is for everyone....



Maybe it’s the old romantic in me but with this year’s Mobile World Congress in a new location, starting on a new date and with spring closer than the turn of the year, it feels like a time to refresh, to rejuvenate, to re-think, to look forwards with confidence.


In many ways, that commentary and thinking is a great metaphor for the march towards LTE.
