When will 4g services restored in jammu
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Nepal’s Chaudhary Group (CG) has signed a deal worth about $100 million with China’s Huawei Technologies to bring 4G phone services to the country, CG’s chief executive said, shrugging off U.S. security concerns about Huawei’s products. Aiming to shake up Nepal’s mobile phone market as Reliance Industries Ltd’s Jio has done in India, CG planned an initial $250 million investment in the new 4G network, Chairman Binod Chaudhary said in an interview. It will include free voice services but focus on data, online payment and other services, he said. After starting out selling noodles in India and later across Asia, his family-owned conglomerate now includes a bank, a telecommunications business- providing rural telephony - and dozens of resorts, including two in the Maldives in partnership with India’s Taj Group.

Google Fiber will turn off its network in Louisville, Kentucky and exit the city after a series of fiber installation failures left cables exposed in the roads. Google Fiber's customers in Louisville will have to switch ISPs and will get their final two months of Google Fiber service for free to help make up for the disruption. Google Fiber went live in Louisville late in 2017, just a few months after construction began. The quick turnaround happened because Google Fiber used a shallow trenching strategy that is quicker than traditional underground fiber deployment and doesn't require digging giant holes. Instead of a foot-wide trench, a micro-trench is generally about an inch wide and four inches deep. In Louisville, Google Fiber reportedly was burying cables in "nano-trenches" that were just two inches deep. But Louisville residents soon found exposed cables, as a WDRB article noted in March 2018. "When you're walking around the neighborhood, [the lines are] popping up out of the … [Read more...] about Google Fiber’s biggest failure: ISP will turn service off in Louisville
By Yoko Kubota WSJ Thu., Jan. 24, 2019 Microsoft Corp. said access to its Bing search engine in China was restored, ending a disruption that came as Beijing tightens its grip on the internet and as tensions brew between the U.S. and China over trade and technology. Brad Smith, Microsoft’s president and legal chief, said earlier Thursday that the company had been trying to find out what happened. Frustrations surfaced this week among internet users in mainland China over the sudden interruption of the local service of Bing, the last major Western search engine available in the country. Service began coming back online Thursday for some users. It wasn’t immediately clear why the search engine became unavailable and whether the Chinese government had blocked it. The Cybersecurity Administration of China didn’t respond to a request for comment. Speaking from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Mr. Smith told Fox Business Network that Bing … [Read more...] about Microsoft’s Bing Service Restored in China
By Katie Dowd and and Amy Graff, SFGATE Published 2:42 pm PST, Thursday, November 15, 2018 Smoke and haze from wildfires obscures the Embarcadero Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, in San Francisco. Recurring wildfires are sparking concern among medical experts about potentially major health consequences. Worsening asthma, lung disease and even heart attacks in heart disease patients have all been linked with previous fires. But blazes that used to be seasonal are happening nearly year-round and increasingly spreading into cities. That's exposing many more people to choking smoke that contains many of the same toxic ingredients as urban air pollution.
