Australia is embarking on a massive project to roll out a National Broadband Network that provides high-speed internet for the whole country. But as cities get more access to new technology, the country's remote indigenous communities risk becoming the "forgotten part of Australia".
Most broadband customers get the speeds ISPs advertise -- but some don't, and they're likely to be DSL users, says an FCC report.
The new 4G service will be rolling out to customers this week, and is three times faster than current speeds.
Having trouble streaming HD video like many others in the US and elsewhere? New advances mean you might find a better connection on lunar soil.
The major U.S. providers say reclassifying broadband as a utility would cost billions and result in slow speeds and fewer choices for consumers.
New broadband rules will include assurances that ISPs will not be able to segregate web traffic into fast and slow lanes, according to the Wall Street Journal.
A door-to-door survey of residents in Kansas City suggest that as many as 50 percent of households in Google Fiber neighborhoods are signing up for the service, which could drive the company to expand further across the nation.
Level 3 says the providers are slowing down Internet traffic to extract payment from it. But a deeper dive into the specifics reveals there may be another side to the story.
Cox Communications will join Google and AT&T in offering residential customers 1Gbps broadband by the end of the year, the cable operator's CEO told Bloomberg TV.
The mere promise of Google Fiber seems to be enough to send rivals scrambling to deliver ultrafast Internet service at a reasonable price. Just look at Austin, Texas.
