14th April, 2021 (11 Comments)

Senior Government MPs and Ofcom have backed a call by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) for the development of future 6G based mobile broadband technologies to prioritise societal benefits, instead of the usual focus on delivering “ever higher data [speeds] and ever higher spectrum bands.”

23rd March, 2021 (0 Comments)

A UK space technology firm called Open Cosmos has announced the successful launch of two commercial Low Earth Orbit (LEO) nano satellites, which are focused on the Internet of Things connectivity market and harness various 5G and Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) technologies.

20th March, 2021 (27 Comments)

OneWeb, which is partly owned by the UK Government and aims to deploy a global network of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites for ultrafast low-latency broadband provision (here), has signed a new agreement to deliver fast in-flight WiFi on aircraft with SatixFy, a British manufacturer of electronic components.

Seismologists in California have teamed up with Google to develop a clever new way of detecting Earthquakes by harnessing the internet giant’s existing 10,500km long “Curie” subsea fibre cable, which can transmit data at speeds of 72Tbps (Terabits per second) – via four 18Tbps fibre pairs – between the USA and Chile.

Broadband ISP TalkTalk has this week updated their list of blocked websites (i.e. those where they’ve been ordered by the UK high court to do so) to include the controversial Sci-Hub, which describes itself as being “the first pirate website in the world to provide [free] mass and public access to tens of millions of research papers.”

The Fiber Broadband Association, which represents FTTP networks and suppliers in the USA, has published a new study that claims Elon Musk’s new constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) based Starlink broadband satellites will face a “capacity shortfall” by 2028 and over 56% of their “RDOF subscribers” (rural) may not be fully served.

2nd February, 2021 (6 Comments)

At present some of the fastest consumer available and Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based broadband ISPs in the world can offer speeds of up to 10-20Gbps (Gigabits per second), but a new trial by Vodafone and Nokia’s Bell Labs division has just provided a glimpse into the future by achieving speeds of 100Gbps on a single PON wavelength.

22nd January, 2021 (10 Comments)

Maybe it was just a lot of hot air but Google (Alphabet) has announced that Loon, their long-running project that aimed to deploy mobile broadband (4G / 5G) connectivity from High Altitude Platforms (stratospheric balloons), is “winding down” as a company after they struggled to turn it into a commercial success.

19th January, 2021 (0 Comments)

The trade association for UK mobile operators, Mobile UK, has warned that calls for the 5G rollout to be delayed on health grounds are “without merit“. The commentary comes after Professor John William Frank (University of Edinburgh) alleged that the transmitter density required for 5G may be “potentially harmful to health.”

In an interesting development OneWeb, which is owned by a consortium of the UK Government and Indian conglomerate Bharti Global (here), has secured an investment of $350m (c.£257m) from Japanese company Softbank – the same firm that effectively forced it into bankruptcy last year by putting a stop on further funding.

13th January, 2021 (2 Comments)

The nbn™ Fixed Wireless network in Australia has just set what appears to be a new “world record” after it reached a broadband speed of “close” to 1Gbps (1000Mbps) via 5G mobile technology in a millimetre-wave (mmWave) band, using about 400MHz of spectrum bandwidth, over a distance of 7.3km.

11th January, 2021 (7 Comments)

An international team of researchers from Japan, the USA and France has managed to achieve a world record data transmission speed of 1 Petabit per second (or 1,000,000 Gigabits) in a single-core multi-mode optical fibre cable, which is 2.5 times faster than the previous record of 0.4Pbps.

Space firm OneWeb, which is owned by a consortium of the UK Government and Indian conglomerate Bharti Global (here) and is in the process of building a mega constellation of “high-speed” broadband satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), may move their Airbus supported manufacturing base to the UK.. eventually.

18th December, 2020 (13 Comments)

As promised space company OneWeb, which is owned by a consortium of the UK Government and Indian conglomerate Bharti Global (here), has today successfully launched their next batch of 36 high-speed broadband capable Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellites – built with support from Airbus – into orbit.

15th December, 2020 (0 Comments)

Broadband and mobile giant BT has today announced that they will lead a new Government backed consortium as part of ‘Project XCelerate‘, which seeks to establish the UK’s first commercial drone corridor in open and unrestricted airspace (i.e. enabling automated drones and manned aviation to safely co-exist).

7th December, 2020 (17 Comments)

A new world record has been achieved after a collaboration between TIM, Ericsson, Casa Systems and Qualcomm resulted in the companies, for the first time, reaching a broadband speed of 1Gbps over a distance of 6.5km from a radio antenna. This was done using 5G tech in the millimetre-wave (mmWave) band on a live network.

2nd December, 2020 (11 Comments)

A new joint study between Telefonica (e.g. O2 UK) and telecoms kit maker Nokia, which focused on the power consumption of the RAN (Radio Access Network), has claimed that the latest generation of ultrafast 5G based mobile (mobile broadband) networks are up to 90% more energy efficient “per traffic unit” than existing 4G ones.
