Comcast tests tech that enables gigabit upload speeds over cable

Just a few years ago Comcast started rolling out 1Gbps cable service and now it’s widely available in many areas across the country, but it still can’t match fiber for upload speed. Many fiber services offer gigabit speeds for customers on uploads and downloads, while the Xfinity package is limited to 35Mbps upload, at a time when people are creating more content and producing more video streams from home than ever before.

This Ingenious Charging Cable Works with All Your Devices

Some people have tailored their lives to make sure they only need one charging cable for everything. But that’s an odd existence given the device pairings you’d have to use to make sure one cable would work.

Verizon, Dish and cable are winners in 5G U.S. airwaves sale

Verizon Communications and Dish Network were the top winners in a U.S. auction of airwaves that also saw cable providers take home rights to use the frequencies that are useful for fast 5G service, the Federal Communications Commission said.

The agency in an emailed statement released results of the auction that raised $4.6 billion in bidding that concluded Aug. 25.

Cable providers Charter Communications and Comcast were the third- and fourth-largest winners, ranked by spending, the FCC said.

Another FCC airwaves sale set to begin in December will offer even more 5G airwaves. The auctions are part of U.S. efforts to make way for the ultra-fast mobile internet service expected to underlie remote surgery, autonomous vehicles and other advanced applications.

Verizon placed $1.9 billion in winning bids, compared with Dish’s $913 million. The spending reflects a race to serve customers who relentlessly increase their use of mobile data for video

Facebook and Google drop plans for underwater cable to Hong Kong after security warnings

The Pacific Light Cable Network (PLCN), an ambitious underwater data cable project partly owned by Facebook and Google, won’t be connecting Los Angeles to Hong Kong after all. 

New plans for the 12,800 kilometre-long network presented to the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) show that the PLCN will instead only operate between the US, Taiwan and the Philippines.

The nearly 13,000 kilometres of underwater cables have already been laid, but the project needed permission from the FCC before operations could kick off. In the new application filed by the companies managing PLCN, authorization was only requested to run the network between the US, Taiwan, and the Philippines. The file specifies that the applicants are not seeking authority for the Hong Kong path.

Initially announced in 2016, the PLCN project was intended to provide direct submarine cable connectivity between Hong Kong and Los Angeles. It is made of six fiber pairs,

A Cable Snapped, and the Arecibo Observatory Went Dark. Here’s Why That Matters | Smart News

Since it was installed in 1963, the gargantuan Arecibo Observatory has played a key role in the study of the universe. Formally known as the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center, the radio telescope consists of a huge saucer-like construction, suspended by cables 500 feet above a 1,000-foot-wide dish, all overlooking a panoramic view of the Puerto Rican rainforest.

At 2:45 a.m. in the morning on August 10, one of those supporting cables snapped. The three-inch-wide cable flailed around wildly, damaging the telescope’s Gregorian dome and slashing a 100-foot-long gash through the dish below, reports Dennis Overbye for the New York Times.

Luckily, no one was hurt, reports Daniel Clery for Science magazine. However, the observatory will be shut down temporarily for repairs, scientists announced in a statement from the University of Central Florida (UCF), which manages the observatory for the National Science Foundation.
