Enjoying that 25Mbps internet speed, America? Oh, it's just 6Mbps? And you're unhappy? Can't imagine why

Comment American internet users are, seemingly, getting a quarter of the internet speed they are paying for.

That's the upshot of yet another survey, this time in the US state of Georgia, that demonstrates that American consumers are being institutionally lied to about their broadband.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution hired a data specialist to do a statewide study of what internet users were really getting when it comes to broadband.

What else can we add to UK.gov's tech project bonfire? Oh yeah, 5G
Friday, 19 July 2019 18:15

The UK's ÂŁ217m 5G testbed trials have already hit a major speed bump due to a lack of available equipment, according to an official report.

In the Infrastructure Project Authority's annual report (PDF), the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport's (DCMS) programme was rated as amber/red – meaning delivery is doubtful.

The project intends to establish a national programme of coordinated 5G testbeds and trials and is funded from the ÂŁ740m pot for digital communications technologies announced in the 2016 Autumn Statement .

In March 2018, the government announced six winners of the first phase of the 5G Testbeds

AT&T has announced “strategic alliances” with both IBM and Microsoft, as it looks to capitalize on cloud computing without getting its hands dirty.

In the beginning of 2019, the world’s largest telco completed the sale of its data center business to Brookfield infrastructure, offloading 31 facilities for $1.1bn, to become the foundation of an independent colocation business called Evoque.
