Some of the fastest and slowest broadbands in UK cities

Posted by on Jun 24, 2016 in Internet, Temi | 0 comments

Recently, various speed tests have been conducted by the consumer broadband advice site throughout the UK in order to find out the villages and towns with both fastest and slowest broadband speeds. These speed tests are measured in Mbps. Let us get to know more about these cities and what are the reforms required to put an end to this suffering. Current Broadband Speed Scenario Around the UK The speed of the broadband considerably varies in the urban regions. For instance, if you are living in Inverness or Cardiff, chances are more that you will struggle to download a 2 hour 50 minutes movie, but on the contrary you can do the same in lesser time if you are living in Birmingham. There are some deprived regions where the broadband services were not satisfactory. Talking about Belfast, there are regions where the broadband services hardly meet the minimum speed of 2Mbps. Moving to Manchester, don’t expect the figures to vary too much. The figure dropped to 28% in Glasgow’s deprived regions, while the overall average of the city is a little above 65%. The locals of Hull have recorded an average download speed of 12.40 Mbps for a period of July 2015 and April 2016. Milton Keynes and Aberdeen also have to face the same situation where they recorded the speed of 15.60 Mbps and 17.01 Mbps. The cities of UK should enjoy the privilege of high-speed broadband speed, yet only 24 cities have the privilege of using an average speed of 24 Mbps. Miserden is known to receive a speed of 1.3 Mbps, in Laddingford if you are lucky then you might come across a speed of 0.7 Mbps. The locals are of the view that money had been sanctioned for making reforms in the area’s broadband network, but the changes are yet to be witnessed. Some of the locals of Colchester even complained that their houses are three years old, even then they are just getting a broadband speed that is less than 1 Mbps. Appointment of first Technology Adviser Mr. Liam Maxwell has joined as new Chief Technology Officer. His new role will dictate the expansion of the government relationships with the digital and technology industry in order to give a boost to the digital economy of UK. This will further prove handy in offering enhanced & world-class services to the the British citizens. Mr. Maxwell said, his job will comprise of engaging the topmost leaders of the industry, which will cater to the digital market issues and scaling the role of UK in the new & emerging technologies such as blockchain, mass stimulation technologies and sharing economy, etc. His core task will comprise of initiating amendments that will prove helpful in giving a boost to the digital economy of UK. He will also be accountable for the consolidation and expansion of the government’s relationship with the digital and technology industry, assembling the new National Technology Council and being a key source to boost the investment in the UK. Government Initiative The good times are all set to roll for all those who are struggling with the poor broadband speed. This is being said to the context to the reforms being initiated by UK’s government to propose ultra-fast broadband services. In order to execute this, the government is all set to pump in £1 billion investment. The government is hopeful of providing the people with a minimum speed of 24 Mbps per second by 2018. The best part is that the locals don’t have to upgrade their existing gadgets or switching to ISP. Now, the locals...

Your Facebook profile on a dating site or any other sites

Posted by on Feb 6, 2011 in Internet | 0 comments

Facebook Privacy & Data Issue When your one time rival is seeking to work with you, you can be sure you have not just triumphed over your competition but by a very large margin. When MySpace started using Facebook login API to login users to MySpace, it was only a symbolic throwing in of the tower by MySpace. Though Facebook is the run away winner of the social networking battle, a lot of critics are not impressed with Facebook privacy nor how easy Facebook has made obtaining and using your personal data entrusted to them. A group of social networking users are so disgruntled with Facebook privacy that they are starting a social networking site called diaspora to rival Facebook purely because of what they see as Facebook privacy laxes. Another group of people with axe to grind with Facebook has just setup a fake dating website with 250,000 profiles of Facebook user profiles pulled from Facebook without any problems or vetting, they call the site Face to Facebook . They have a completely different reason for creating their project, its now to highlight privacy issue like diaspora is doing, its more an experimental art project where they just use Facebook user profile as the source of the faces they need for their project. In total, they extracted 1 million Facebook user profiles and narrow the pictures that meed their needs down to 250,000. The reason whey the creator of Face to Facebook (they also created a second site called Lovely Faces)created the site is not really clear. Trying to figure this out from reading a page on their site called theory could almost give you a nose bleed, excerpt from the page follows: Facebook is an eternal, illusory party, under surveillance and recorded for all time. Its structure invites you to first replicate and then enhance your real social structures, replicating your experiences on your own personal “screen space”. In this unending party, you meet and join old and new friends, acquaintances and relatives. As with most parties everything is private, or restricted to the invited guests, but has the potential to become public, if accidental shared. Here the guests’ activity and interests are also recorded through their posts in different formats and media (pictures, movies, trips, preferences, comments). It’s an induced immaterial labour with instant gratification. Guests produce content by indirectly answering the question “who am I?” and they get new friends and feedback in the process. Whilst its almost impossible to make sense of Face to Facebook or the motive behind it, one thing that is clear is the fact that if you are one of the 500 Million people who are said to have a Facebook account, anyone, anywhere could pull you Facebook profle and do what they want with it, you can even find yourself on a dating site looking for a partner even though you are not looking for one.
