Discussions Concerning 4G into the Conclusive Week

The meetings and discussions taking place between the government, the companies providing the basic necessities for the operations, the operators and the telecommunications regulator, Ofcom has ultimately entered the last week, and the net result of these discussions is that there is as yet possibility that the implementation could be delayed by legalities.

According to what Mobile informed the previous week, the discussions consisted of attempts to find ways and means of doing away with obstruction of the spectrum at the earliest and ensuring that the requisite infrastructure is set up faster. The anticipation is that all the four major operators would be able to release their respective 4G facilities by the spring instead of the earlier planned launch in autumn.

Everything Everywhere has ideas of introducing their own 4G facilities towards the later part of the current year, an action that is still ranking its competitors. As per what the Financial Times has to say, the discussions also consisted of the government’s wish to try and end for good the problems that have been brewing among the four operators. However there does not seem to be any specific decision on that front as yet. As of the present the government has negotiated a contract lasting for a month that ensures that any there will be no lawsuits or launches of the 4G services.

It has been stated that someone who has been in the know of the facts that have been happening during the discussions remarked that there was danger that many years of legal disputes were still left behind, in spite of efforts to arrive at some sort of a pact. Over and above this anxiety that legal actions could prevent the release of the 4G services planned by Everything Everywhere, there is also worry that lawsuits in all probability have an effect on the sale of the 4G spectrum that is anticipated to occur in the early months of the coming year.
