As a regulator, I am particularly interested in the policy/regulatory issues which were glossed over in favour of the hardware problems facing the GII.
Also, on the issue of funding, although it seems cost-effective to build upon existing projects and initiatives by the commercial, independent companies, the "pulling" together of the NIIs would still require some funding. How is the G7 splitting the costs and how is this being extended to other nations outside the G7 sphere?
