Google will make page speed a factor in mobile search ranking starting in July

  Google will make page speed a factor in mobile search ranking starting in July Google today announced a significant change in how it ranks websites for mobile searches: it will now take page speed into consideration as one of its signals, the company says. Though speed will become more of a factor in determining the order of search results, the change is not so drastic as to make it the only factor. There will be times that slow pages still rank highly - like when they have the most relevant content related to the search query at hand, for example.

The new state-run mobile blackspots project is being delivered as part of the AU million Connecting Regional Communities Program announced in the 2017-18 Budget. "The government has committed AU million to priority black spot locations, on top of the AU0 million already

BlackBerry Mobile commits to "at least" two new phones in 2018

  BlackBerry Mobile commits to It wasn't that long ago that the BlackBerry brand seemed stagnant, but devices like the KEYone and the more recent Motion seem to have gotten some people feeling the faith once more. "We're very confident in our ability to grow the keyboard market," said Gareth Hurn, BlackBerry Mobile's Global Head of Device Portfolio, in a conversation with Engadget.

Victoria abandons federal mobile blackspots program to go it alone. The state’s Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy stated the Commonwealth’s blackspot program chooses tower places based mostly on political pursuits relatively than advantage.

Victoria's Labor government is refusing to help fund mobile towers in opposition seats as part of a federal program to fix black spots.

It will instead use the $11 million it planned to invest in the latest round of the Mobile Black Spot Program to work directly with telecommunication companies for new towers.

"The decision to leave the federal government's program is due to the Commonwealth failing to properly consult when choosing sites and a complete lack of transparency about how sites are chosen," Victoria's Innovation Minister Philip Dalidakis said in a statement on Wednesday.

The 16 Victorian priority locations announced by Canberra in November are in the Liberal seats of Corangamite, La Trobe, Casey, Gippsland and Flinders, and the National seat of Murray.

Apple iOS 11.2.5 Release: It's A Big One

In finally coming clean (admittedly one year late), Apple has admitted it slows iPhones – and coincidentally just after the release of each new generation – to protect their already degrading batteries from shutting off if the phone were to continue operating at full performance.

Today, I’m proud to announce we’re boosting the number of base stations we’re building under the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program (MBSP), as Telstra has won an additional 89 sites in the Priority Round.

State and federal governments and major telecommunication companies contribute to the federal program.

More than 140 mobile towers have already been funded in Victoria under the previous two rounds and 79 are finished.

Federal Regional Communities Minister Bridget McKenzie says this represents a "fantastic" outcome for Victoria.

"The Victorian state Labor government is playing pure politics with regional communications and that will leave people living, working and investing in regional Victoria worse off," she said in a statement to AAP.

It's unclear how many additional towers will be built with the $11 million pulled from the federal program.

Victoria is yet to work out co-funding arrangements with Telstra, Optus and Vodafone, who will also contribute money, a spokesman for Mr Dalidakis said.

Regional Development Minister Jaala Pulford said the government was "working with Emergency Management Victoria, local councils and Regional Partnerships to get this right".

The towers will come on top of 25 others to be built under a separate partnership with Optus, announced in October.

Labor governments in South Australia and Western Australia have also refused to fund mobile tower priority locations for their respective states.

The seven WA sites, and two out of three SA sites, are in Liberal seats.

The Single Best Phone Plan From Every Australian Telco .
Most people have a pretty strong opinion about their telco. Some love their provider and wouldn't consider switching to a competitor, others hate certain telcos and will never do business with them again. The problem with being rusted-on to a provider based on reputation is that you may never give thought to plan switching. You definitely should.
