A very British approach to regulation; altimeter checks in Norway and the cold side of quantum computing

In this episode of the Digital Digest, we roundup the biggest stories of the week from merger talk to 5G and aviation safety.

Natalie assesses Ofcom's latest report on competition, which indicates the UK mobile market could be due for a significant shake-up – and she also brings us the inside scoop on Metro Connect USA 2022.

Saf brings us the latest from Norway, where telecoms regulator Nkom has conducted tests to determine whether 5G could interfere with altimeters in… helicopters. While Alan tells us all about his quantum adventure in London – and the silicon-based devices that are about to change the future of telecoms infrastructure.
