Because the press can only write one story at a time, the words of Johan Wibergh, Vodafone CTO, at Huawei’s MBBF last week, were given full coverage. Yes, he called for a little 5G realism, but really in pretty mild terms. He has in fact done this before, by the way, and I suspect he noticed then that this sort of stuff goes over well. Everyone loves a counter-narrative.
