What was unique about the outage was the scope of the disruptions as the outage affected video streaming services, game platforms, and even webcasts of European soccer. http://www.circleid.com/posts/20201113-network-outages-go-global/ ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20201116180337.4AEF3431@telecom2018.csail.mit.edu> Date: Mon, 16 Nov 2020 18:03:37 +0000 (UTC) From: Moderator <telecomdigestsubmissions@remove-this.telecom-digest.org> Subject: Verizon Brass Faces 5G mmWave Skeptics By Matt Kapko November 12, 2020 Verizon executives this week batted down pointed criticism and ongoing concerns about its millimeter-wave (mmWave) 5G strategy during an event with analysts and investors. Verizon's 5G effort began with a heavy push on mmWave to deploy its 5G Ultra Wideband network, but the coverage of that network remains narrow and sporadic, sometimes from city block to city block. https://www.sdxcentral.com/articles/news/verizon-brass-faces-5g-mmwave-skeptics/2020/11/ ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20201116175156.4737B431@telecom2018.csail.mit.edu> Date: Mon, 16 Nov 2020 17:51:56 +0000 (UTC) From: Moderator <telecomdigestsubmissions@remove-this.telecom-digest.org> Subject: Internet/cell service outage in county shows fragility and cooperation by Mark Reaman November 13, 2020 A contractor putting in a water line near Cimmaron cut through a CenturyLink fiber line Thursday morning and that resulted in most cell phone and Internet service going down in Gunnison and Hinsdale counties. That included the ability for people to call 911 in an emergency. County officials scrambled to make sure emergency services were at the ready and in the end, the approximate 10-hour outage showed how fragile the area's connectivity is. http://crestedbuttenews.com/2020/11/internet-cell-service-outage-in-county-shows-fragility-and-cooperation/ ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Tue, 17 Nov 2020
