India's Reliance Industries has launched the Jio Next, a cheap 4G smartphone that it hopes will give it dominance of the Indian market and overtake its Chinese competitors.
India, the world's second biggest smartphone market, has seen traffic grow more than 60 times over the past five years and mobile users now consume about 13.5GB of data each month, a study of the subcontinent's mobile market by Finnish telecommunications equipment vendor Nokia has found.
A British parliamentary committee has found that the process of selecting vendors to supply 5G gear for the country's networks has delayed the rollout and made it more expensive due to the ban on equipment from Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies.
The CEO of TPG Telecom, Iñaki Berroeta, has given a keynote speech at a major comms conference where he spoke about 5G's evolution and phases, 5G and IoT, massive boosts in video traffic, convergence, dark fibre, infrastructure, the NBN, renewable energy, the VHA and TPG merger and plenty more.
India's biggest integrated telecommunications provider Bharti Airtel has renewed an agreement it had in place with Swedish telecommunications equipment provider Ericsson to provide nationwide managed network operations through the Swedish firm's Ericsson Operation Engine.

The management of Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies have requested a meeting with an aide to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as news emerges that the company's gear will be removed from the UK's 5G networks by the end of 2025.
Nokia has announced that it has declared more than 3,000 patent families to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) as essential for the 5G standard.
OPINION: An article that claims there's a big problem with the new iPhone has itself a big problem, simply because it claims there being no 5G version of the iPhone itself yet, is some kind of actual, real world problem - and it's not even the real issue!
Huawei Australia chairman John Lord has launched a strong defence of the company and its operations, saying that if it were excluded from the 5G network build locally it would be of huge significance for the company.
Deutsche Telekom "is modernising its mobile network with 5G-ready multi-standard solutions" in a quest to offer its customers "an ever better customer experience"
Telstra dumps 2G by end 2016, Optus in April 2017 and now Vodafone will follow suit turning off 2G GSM on 30 September 2017.
Reports on Twitter suggest Telstra suffered DNS problems with its ‘primary business DNS servers’ - while Telstra’s service status suggests even more problems.
A top notch research firm says some of the key questions, use cases and opportunities facing operations around IoT and M2M ‘will be resolved’ in 2016, leading to the market maturing ‘markedly.’
Tech kingpin Apple’s bottom line could be under threat to the tune of $1 billion a year as it faces a red hot lawsuit for unlicensed use of 2G and LTE patents from wireless technology giant Ericsson. The legal wrangle which started in January this year but had its origins more than two years ago has now expanded from the US to Ericsson’s home turf, Europe.
Operators in the US and Asia Pacific who have announced network closures are the exceptions, with most to remain in use until 2020.
Huawei is claiming three 'world firsts' with its new multimode USB dongles and a WiMAX/HSPA Android 2.2 handset.
With apologies to David Bowie, "it's a, it's a, it's a iPad in-store Saturday!"
