AUSTIN, Texas -- Suddenlink has launched a new high-speed Internet service with a download speed of 300 Megabits per second (Mbps) and an upload speed of 15 Mbps in Leander and Pflugerville, Texas, with Georgetown, Texas, to follow later this summer. These communities are the first Suddenlink-served areas to receive the service.
Unlike competitive Internet service providers, Suddenlink will offer its 300 Mbps service to all of its residential customers in Leander and Pflugerville, not just to those in a few selected neighborhoods. (See provided map.)
Based on public reports and additional research, it appears AT&T U-verse has cherry-picked where it will offer its service, while Google Fiber is nowhere to be found, said Suddenlink Senior Director of Operations Michael Naumann. In contrast, were making our 300 Meg service available to 100 percent of the residential areas we serve in these communities.
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
