Tech
Speaker 1: This is CNET. And here are the stories that matter right now, Russia has reportedly banned all of Meta's platforms, which includes Facebook and Instagram. The one meta app that's exempt from this band is WhatsApp. The court says this is due to WhatsApp's quote, lack of functionality for the public dissemination of information. The move comes after a Russian court around meta platforms, guilty of extremist activity. The band will reportedly go into effect immediately. Verizon is extending its 5g coverage. [00:00:30] The company says it reached agreements with satellite companies, which will allow it to access more C band spectrum. This year, C band offers a better mix of speed and coverage compared to existing 4g and 5g networks. The new agreements mean more Verizon customers could soon get access to faster 5g airwaves as the company continues its rollout and finally match, which owns popular dating apps like Tinder and hinge just launched a new app for single parents. It's called stir and it's available for free on iOS and Android [00:01:00] with additional paid tier.
