By increasing information-flow at a location, we can now change time, space, and value. Information has quality, reliability and also flow-rate. 3G wireless cell-phone Internet access may be relatively high-flow, but low reliability, as it can drop out from peak use at busy times or due to environmental factors like rain. 3G uses local radio-signal spectrum, and this is a very limited resource that will quickly fill up. 3G is good for wide-spread low-flow information access, like checking a few messages, news, maps or the weather.
3G is not good for high information-flow applications like video, cloud computing, image uploading. In addition 3G spectrum use is quickly filling up, leading to information traffic-jams, and forcing higher prices to make people use it less. Wireless 3G Internet access is not a substitute for high information-flow. 3G wireless Internet spectrum is very limited and unreliable.
The National Cultural Policy must take into account that 3G technology, ADSL, ADSL2, fibre-optic networks, are very different network systems. Policy terms, language and concepts must engage and reflect the important differences and subtleties between these networks.
