New data from A4AI looks at the price of 1GB of mobile data across 60 countries – World Wide Web Foundation
This is the latest data pricing research from the Alliance for Affordable Internet. To see the data in full, visit
Survey after survey shows that the high cost of accessing and using the internet remains one of the major factors keeping billions offline. As the Web Foundation, through our Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), works to develop and implement the policies needed to reduce prices and enable those offline to afford to connect, current data on the level of broadband affordability across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is critical to tracking progress and impact.  
Based on A4AI’s understanding of affordability, where a 1GB mobile prepaid broadband plan is priced at 2% or less of average monthly income — a definition adopted earlier this year by the UN Broadband Commission — we assessed the price of 1GB of mobile prepaid data in 60 LMICs. What does this newest data show?

Comcast/Charter lobby asks FTC to preempt state broadband regulations | Ars Technica
As FTC reexamines enforcement, broadband lobby asks for hands-off approach.
Having succeeded in killing federal net neutrality rules, broadband lobby groups are now asking the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to avoid imposing stricter regulations on the industry.
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai claimed that his net neutrality repeal won't hurt consumers because the FTC will fill the gap left by the FCC's deregulation of broadband. But as things stand today, the FTC can only punish ISPs if they make net neutrality promises and then fail to keep them—ISPs could avoid FTC punishment simply by not making net neutrality promises.
ISPs want to keep it that way. In comments filed this week, cable industry lobby group NCTA told the FTC that "there is plainly no reasonable basis in today's marketplace for singling out ISPs for unique regulatory burdens." The FTC should let "market forces" prevent bad behavior and avoid specific net neutrality or privacy regulation for the broadband industry, the lobby group said.
The FTC should also try to preempt state and local rules, the lobby group argued.

Rural broadband: It's complicated - American Enterprise Institute
Driving between Indianapolis and other parts of the state, one inevitably passes through many small towns and speeds by even more isolated farmhouses, some of which are among the last to enjoy high-speed internet access. Because of the lack of population density, building networks in these geographies is expensive, and sometimes prohibitive.

Cruising for Higher Throughputs - Northern Sky Research Aug 2018
"From 300 Mbps to MSC cruises announced by Marlink in June 2017 to the most recent 3.2 Gbps of throughput delivered to a Carnival Cruise Line Ship in May of 2018, there are few satellite sectors that are seeing such record levels of growth to a customer’s single location . With over 570 Gbps of throughput growth expected between 2017 – 2027 according to NSR’s Maritime SATCOM Report, what applications are driving this growth? "

The optical duality of tellurium nanoparticles for broadband solar energy harvesting and efficient photothermal conversion | Science Advances
Putting the tellurium nanoparticles directly in the water sounds like a bad plan for an industrial process, but this might lead to a better solid absorber for a thermal receiver?
