Today, the Senate Commerce Committee voted to approve the MOBILE NOW Act (S. 2555) with amendments for consideration by the full Senate. This bill, introduced by Committee Chairman John Thune (R-S.D.) and Ranking Member Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), would increase the development of next-generation 5G wireless broadband by freeing up more spectrum for both commercial licensed and unlicensed use and improving broadband infrastructure deployment.

In late January, the Federal Communications Commission voted on a Broadband Progress Report, which once again reaches the erroneous conclusion that the United States is not making reasonable and timely progress toward deploying “advanced telecommunications capability” (a.k.a. broadband). The report’s conclusions rest on a highly strained reading of the evidence, and do not conform to the statutorily-directed purpose of the report.
Brussels (Reuters)- European and U.S. officials are rushing to finalize a key data transfer pact days before a meeting of EU regulators who are poised to start restricting transatlantic flows of personal data used by firms in the billion dollar online advertising industry.
(Reuters) : Microsoft Corp reported quarterly revenue and profit that beat analysts' expectations, driven by aggressive cost cutting and growing demand for its cloud products and services.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A coalition of U.S. groups on Wednesday urged the Federal Communications Commission to write sweeping privacy protections for the nation's broadband users.
The groups want providers of broadband internet services including mobile and landline phone, cable and satellite TV firms to be subject to tough privacy regulations.
Among the firms that would be affected are AT&T Inc, Comcast Corp, Verizon Communications Inc and Cablevision Systems Corp.
As the Internet of Things ushers in a new era of connectivity, service providers have found themselves in a race to bolster their existing infrastructure in order to meet the growing demands of bandwidth-hungry end users and their connected devices. At the same time however, the mobile nature of IoT-enabled devices means that fiber, which has long been viewed as the foundation of modern high-capacity networks, is often no longer an option for introducing the necessary high bandwidth and lower latency to these networks.
LAS VEGAS, NV- January 05, 2016) - Sckipio Technologies, the leader in G.fast, today announced it's demonstrating over 750Mbps of ultrafast broadband upload speeds on existing twisted pair copper telephone wires -- over 100 times faster than most consumers achieve today.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Internet connection speeds have tripled over 3-1/2 years to keep up with consumer demands for streaming video and downloading content but the United States still lags many other countries.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said in a report on Wednesday average download connection speeds had increased to nearly 31 megabits per second (Mbps) in September 2014 from about 10 Mbps in March 2011.
Rising Internet speeds have been driven by consumer demands for growing amounts of bandwidth to watch movies, play video games and download data.
TORONTO (Reuters) - Cable company Shaw Communications Inc gutpunched its main telecom rival with a surprise offer to buy wireless operator Wind Mobile, sinking shares in Telus Corp on Thursday amid competition fears.
Telus fell to its lowest since early 2014 as analysts cheered Shaw's move, which if completed, would give Wind more financial heft to expand its network and provides Shaw with an established wireless product to bundle with its Internet, television and landline services.
