All data is just encoded energy, and light is the fastest moving form of energy in the universe. Fiber optics are tiny strands of glass meant to take advantage of this speed by conducting light between two points.
Many materials have been used for underground sewer lines in the USA over the last century or so. The inevitable result is that pipes fail, eventually.
Sewer lines eventually fail, due to aging, erosion, the shifting of the earth, or penetration by a root.
Because parking lots, driveways and structures are less permeable than natural surfaces, property development leads to run off problems: excess water in certain areas causes flooding and increased flow rate, which in turn leads to increased erosion.
When your sewer lines backs up, the problems pile up, too. You’ve got no usable bathroom until the issue is resolved.
The short answer is no. At least, that’s not the alleged plan, and it seems unlikely in the near future.
The intent behind Starlink is to meet a demand that the internet service providers (ISPs) are struggling to meet: rural populations. Low population density means that there are fewer customers to service. Fewer monthly subscribers means less income to make up the costs of installation. Naturally, the providers are going to go where the money is first. And if there’s not enough money in rural areas, broadband may never come there at all.
The increased sunlight and decreased rainfall of summer usually means more work for gardeners.Weeds love that extra sunshine, and careful waterings take up more of your time. The tried-and-true solution for this, of course, is mulch.
The day when 5G actually lives up to the hype appears to be a ways off, yet. Though all the major providers in the US offer 5G coverage maps, the maps themselves come with little to no information about what they actually mean. The T mobile map shows 2 different shades of pink, one for 5G and one for 4G. What exactly 5G “coverage” actually means in said map is left for the viewer to interpret.
Upon the launch of 4G, the eventual arrival of 5G was more or less assumed to be inevitable. With that came other assumptions. Obviously, we expect 5G to be “faster.” But how much faster is 5G going to be? What is that going to mean for users? How will it change technology? How does 5G work?
The speed of light is the new benchmark for success in data speeds. The possibilities that new technologies like fiber optics and 5G bring to the table have actually put this mark in our sights, theoretically. But its one thing to match it on paper, and another thing to bring that sort of power to every internet user in the country. Still, falling a bit short of the mark could still be faster than the human mind can think gimme. Right?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
