Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , ,

Meanwhile, the PAEs themselves faced few ramifications. Recently, my company joined patent protection network LOT and the Open Innovation Ne... Read More

FCC Won’t Redefine ‘Broadband;’ Move Could Have Worsened Digital Divide

In Business, Government, Legal by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: ,

Internet activists just got some unexpected good news from an unexpected source. Last summer the Federal Communications Commission floated the possibility of lowering its threshold for connections to be considered broadband. Now it's backing away from that idea. The FCC announced Thursday that it will continue to define home broadband as connections that are 25 megabits per second (mbps). The commission also established a new standard for mobile broadband as a connection of 10mbps or higher, and said it had rejected the idea—which it had floated last year—of labeling... Read More

Apple has faced mounting criticism in recent years for avoiding taxes in the US and Europe. Wednesday, it offered critics 38 billion replies. More precisely, Apple said it would pay an estimated $38 billion in tax to bring back to the US some of the cash it has stashed overseas over the years. Apple says the payment would be the largest tax payment of its type in history. But it’s also a pretty good deal for the company. In the wake of the tax-cut bill approved by Congress last month, Apple also announced plans to invest $30 billion in the US over the next fi... Read More
