As Gerry McQuade has just been appointed CEO of new business unit BT Enterprise in order to bring together and lead the new organisation, we are releasing this week’s #ThinkDigital video interview in which McQuade emphasizes his vision with respect to the telco of tomorrow, the EU regulatory approach and more.
"I think the key message from me is one of optimism. I think now is the right time to decide how we take a leading position in a digital economy. I think we are at a crossroads, though.
When you get to the 5G world - which I think really is the enabler for the Internet of Things and the Internet of Everything - you are talking about millions of small cells, with fiber connected, all over the cities, all over the EU. That is a very different model, a very different investment profile.
The regulation for the last 20 years needs to be different for the regulation in the next 20 years", emphasizes McQuade.
