"What many people fail to realise is that the colossal volumes of data that will result from 4G will cause serious problems for unprepared IP networks," said Jewell at the time. "Without action to future-proof the underlying IT infrastructure the limitations of 3G, such as lack of bandwidth, will merely be shifted from the airwaves into the data centre."
