They will continue to push AT&T to commit to servicing the customers of the Midwest region with reliable market-leading communications services as they have for decades using CWA members covered by the Midwest Agreement. The bargaining team is urging members to write a short letter to their members of Congress ask them to investigate what AT&T has done with its tax break windfall since the company is clearly not keeping its promise to using the money to create jobs and keep good jobs in the communities they serve.

The NPA is used to provide your local time/temp. The current temp, high, and low are provided in F and C. In addition, old time and temperature announcements are played. For those with illogical caller ID (i.e. in another NPA), there is also an option to enter an NPA at the end for time/temp in that area. http://interlinked.cf/ ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20190207190935.GA11473@telecom2018.csail.mit.edu> Date: Thu, 7 Feb 2019 19:09:35 +0000 From: Bill Horne <bill@horneQRM.net> Subject: 5G And The Future Of Entertainment Article by Alissa Miller, Jennifer L. Richter and Courtney S. York Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP The technology on everyone's mind at this year's CES was 5G. So named because it is the fifth-generation wireless networking technology, offering more than just incremental performance improvements over 4G – some experts are predicting that the technology will usher in a "fourth industrial revolution." Some of the most immediate and predictable effects of 5G will be felt in the media and entertainment industries, where 5G is expected to unlock more than a trillion dollars in new revenues. Important to an understanding of 5G's potential is a discussion of the sheer scale of its technical improvements. 5G promises, among other things, data speeds 100 times faster than 4G, 10 times lower latency, 100 times more network capacity and significantly more reliable connections. Some of the effects of these improvements are more obvious: a two-hour HD movie can take several minutes to download at 4G speeds, but, with 5G, users could download the same movie in just a few seconds. This alone will allow traditional content creators to push far more product to consumers – video is, in fact, expected to account for 90 percent of 5G data traffic – but the high speeds of 5G wireless will also combine with 5G's latency, capacity and reliability improvements to facilitate entry for new competitors and new business models for new and old competitors alike. http://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/x/777850/Gaming/5G+And+The+Future+Of+Entertainment -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Tue, 12 Feb 2019
