Building on the investments the telecommunications giant made in Philadelphia last year ahead of Pope Francis' historic visit, Verizon is making upgrades to locations that are crucial to the convention's success. http://www.bizjournals.com/philadelphia/morning_roundup/2016/06/verizon-data-network-wells-fargo-dnc2016-clinton.html -- Bill Horne ***** Moderator's Note ***** Maybe those whom were forced to use cellular phones after a hurricane hit New Jersey could have their own convention. It's a shame that Verizon only puts money into impressing those whom can hurt their bottom line.

If I were them, I'd compare the surveyed population with the US census, which is about as accurate a description of the US population as likely exists. -- Barry Margolin, barmar@alum.mit.edu Arlington, MA *** PLEASE post questions in newsgroups, not directly to me *** ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Wed, 29 Jun 2016
