EE mobile and Big video
EE video has more to offer with gigaytes and it is better so I think it is a good thing for Big video to be with EE.

With a lot of the current focus on getting 5G booted up, it's interesting that they are looking even farther down the road. Did he mention network slicing as part of a virtualized 5G core? Looking forward to Part II.

Re: planning
It's crazy to think how far ahead they're thinking! However, I don't know if it's logical. Technology is something that is so difficult to grasp the future progress of. Thinking far in advance can be helpful as long as they aren't set in stone in their ideas.

Re: planning
I agree. It's got to be especially challenging with respect to developing scalable technology though. That seems like something that has to be more of a "long game" type deal.

EE Mobile Video
There are several user barriers of adoption to mobile content and services due to mobile data plan costs and plan restrictions.

With future events, companies only have estimates of anticipated users who will view live streaming such as political speeches, debates, sporting events, etc. How will companies continue to support live video and audio streaming and in the future?

Re: EE Mobile Video
On top of that, there are probably uses of the technology that may become part of people's daily habits that haven't even occurred to us yet. It wasn't that long ago that most phones didn't have video capability, much less technology that would make live broadcasting video something not only simple, but also becoming commonplace. It's now even part of facebook's functionality. Between the changes in how users consume content, how they share it, the type of content that's being produced & consumed, etc., networks are being used in ways that probably didn't even occur to industry experts 5 years ago ... forget 10 or 15 years ago!

Just a hunch but I think the capacity spikes are going to get much taller
Right after the Istanbul airport suicide bombings, I noticed many international co-workers were leaving mobile phones out on their desks (violation of company rules in some cases but we don't have any managers so insensitive that they'd object), sound off for the most part, and then clicking into streaming video when anything new popped up (and frequently announcing it to others).  Gut feeling: in five years we'll expect everyone to turn on their mobile device whenever there's a breaking news story, and catch new developments on streaming video.  So a big terrorist attack, celebrity crime, etc. is going to slam the daylights out of bandwidth several times a year.

Sounds plausable. Internal networks for smaller firms already suffer when employees do the same on desktop machines. The news cycle alone has changed consumption habits.

Re: planning
Very true. I think it's great that they're thinking big, it just get me nervous how far ahead they're thinking. Sometimes I think it's better to focus on things closer than projects so far away.
