Telecom Tidbits (Part 2433)

You work in Tech. Everyday is a front row seat to amazing. Right?

In a time when storage is practically free, Microsoft sends me a not: On July 27, 2016, the amount of storage that comes with Microsoft OneDrive will change from 15 GB to 5 GB.

the Digital Divide

A new report about Western Mass's fiber fiasco sheds light on the national failure to provide high-speed digital access to rural America. The Digital Divide is still a fight. Despite AT&T, Comcast and Google Fiber thumping their chests about Gigabit, it is available in just pockets of America. AT&T is offering $5 internet to low-income families at 3 MB, which is DSL speed. And if I am not mistaken was part of their merger conditions for AT&T-SBC. Verizon keeps raising the price of DSL. Comcast, other cablecos, satellite providers and fixed wireless ISPs have data caps, which customer hate. And that is in urban markets too.
