And I think this is where the AWS solution would be able to come into 
its own, just like they did with enterprise compute.

If they can abstract all of that and price it reasonably, the barrier to 
entry is significantly lowered.

Well, considering that this service is built both for private and public 
5G use-cases, I imagine the product is elastic enough to support 
whichever business model a non-traditional operator may want fulfilled.

For AWS, the infrastructure is already there. Whether you are looking to 
service 500 or 500,000 customers, it'd all be an extension for them.
