#ThinkDigital interview: Brian Williamson, Partner, Communications Chambers

#ThinkDigital just published an interview with Brian Williamson, Partner, Communications Chambers, who expressed his views on the Gigabit Society ambitions.

Mr. Williamson considers that for achieving a Gigabit Society, we need a mix of technologies, including: more fibre, denser wireless networks, better indoor WiFi connectivity, and make maximum use of existing copper.

As for the 5G, Mr. Williamson states that operators are investing in networks now, in the sense of getting them ready for 5G by making them denser, and so on.  According to Mr. Williamson, 5G is a continuous process, it is not a step change into 2022.
