Dean Bubley, Founder, Disruptive Analysis
Disruptor-in-Chief, Dean Bubley is as trenchant as ever in his comments. He says that for 5G this year will bring good news and bad news. He believes the 5G hype machine will continue to pump out hot air at the same superheated rate as in 2017 whilst, in the real world, the realities and likely pitfalls that will pertain when 5G is rolled-out as a commercial proposition will become apparent. He adds that niche use cases are just that, niche, and thus unrepresentative of a broader mass market reality. Many industry commentators, observers and experts still incline to the view that while use cases actually exist a copper-bottomed business case doesn't - yet.
