Shropshire Star – Struggling with your broadband? Charles Denscombe reckons he has the perfect solution – bypass the providers, and plonk a giant satellite dish in the back garden.
Through his satellite internet technology which is available but not widely known about, Charles gets reliable download speeds of at least 6.5Mb per second, and up to 20Mb per second. And it is all his. The bandwidth is not shared or “contested” bandwidth, and therefore not compromised. more> http://tinyurl.com/d9m5wdg

By Jasmin Melvin – Sprint Nextel Corp (S.N), DirecTV (DTV.O) and others asked U.S. communications regulators on Tuesday to suspend their 180-day clock for reviewing proposed multi-billion dollar airwaves deals between Verizon Wireless and several cable operators.
The Federal Communications Commission is on the 96th day of its review of Verizon Wireless’s plan to buy about $3.9 billion worth of wireless airwaves from cable companies including Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O) and Time Warner Cable Inc (TWC.N).
The cable operators would be allowed to resell Verizon’s mobile service as part of the deals. Verizon Wireless is a venture of Verizon Communications (VZ.N) and Vodafone Group Plc (VOD.L).
Verizon rivals Sprint, Deutsche Telekom AG‘s (DTEGn.DE) T-Mobile USA and MetroPCS Communications (PCS.N), have all complained to the FCC about the bigger company’s cable deal on concerns that it would give too much market power to the already dominant company. more> http://is.gd/n1dCHe
