Re: Will anyone have the patience and resources?
Xavier is the person with right means but he needs local talent to tackle together. Call me if he is interested!

This is a clearly a job for Xavier Niel and France's Free-- he's probably on a plane to Shanghai as we speak. If anyone can undercut the Chinese, he can.

Re: Will anyone have the patience and resources?
The most likely scenario is that this "opportunity" becomes a fool's errand that lasts for a decade or more. What company in its right mind would sign on for something like this?

Re: Will anyone have the patience and resources?
A generation ago, a number of foreign telecom companies jumped headlong into China at the slightest hint of looosening restrictions, and even though most of them probably regretted it, the potential to break into the China market in even a small way probably will prove too enticing once again for anyone to think about the business case in common sense terms.

I'd love to see the business case for competing with the Chinese incumbents in one small area, even if it is in Shanghai.... that's going to be a tough sell, if indeed the authorities are actually going to encourage anyone to participate.

 

As Robert has mentioned previously, China needs tro REALLY start loosening control otherwise the country will fall behind others in terms of innovation...
