He added Altice deployed more than 19,000 small cells in less than a year as part of its partnership with Sprint, and work on its core network is now complete.Goei said Altice had settled on a price point and distribution plan, but declined to provide specifics until nearer the launch.Not worriedAs it prepares to cross over into wireless, Goei insisted the operator doesn’t feel threatened by mobile operators encroaching on Altice USA’s territory with 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) broadband products.“We’ve seen no 5G fixed wireless launches in our footprint. We don’t expect to see them anytime soon given technical and economic constraints for mobile network operators.”The sentiments echoed statements made earlier this year by Comcast Cable CEO David Watson, though Goei conceded it could feel the impacts of FWA competition in rural areas “over time”.

The Strokes Play Ball Against Robots In “The Adults Are Talking” Music Video [Watch]

first_imgThe Strokes suit up and take to the baseball diamond in the rock band’s new video for “The Adults Are Talking”, which was shared this week. The song appeared on the veteran rock band’s Grammy-nominated studio album, The New Abnormal, which arrived earlier this year back on April 10th via Cult/RCA Records.Similar to their other song from The New Abnormal tracklisting in “Ode To The Mets”, the new video for “The Adults Are Talking” is heavily themed around baseball. This time around, members of the band square off against their robotic opponents in some kind of retro-meets-futuristic game of baseball, where they’re joined on the darkened field by Beck, who happens to make a cameo as their first base coach. The band doesn’t seem to have much success at first (they are musicians after all, not athletes) but somehow find their way home to win the game, and celebrate accordingly.Related: iii Points Announces 2021 Lineup: The Strokes, Wu-Tang Clan, Eric Prydz, MoreWatch the band’s new baseball-inspired video for “The Adults Are Talking” as directed by Roman Coppola below.The Strokes – “The Adults Are Talking”[Video: The Strokes]The band recently performed “The Adults Are Talking” along with “Bad Decisions” during their Halloween night appearance on Saturday Night Live earlier this fall.last_img read more

Black Stars is Africa’s best bet to win World Cup

first_imgGhana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi says the Black Stars remains Africa’s best shot at winning the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.No African side has ever won the competition since its inception in 1930 with the Cup having been won 18 times between just seven nations.A quarter-final finish is the farthest a team from the African continent has reached at the World Cup.But with South Africa having the chance to host the competition for the first time on the continent next month, an improved performance by an African side is expected. Africa is represented at the competition by hosts South Africa, Nigeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Algeria and Ghana.Playing in group D which includes Serbia, Australia and three-time winners, Germany, Kwesi Nyantakyi tips the Black Stars as Africa’s surest bet for Cup glory.“The Black Stars commence camping on 24th May, 2010 in Paris, France in preparation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. “We expect the Black Stars to perform well beyond the placing at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany,” The GFA President said at an Ordinary Session of the Ghana Football Association’s Congress on Thursday in Accra.“A World Cup in Africa is expected to be won by an African team. The Black Stars is the favourite Africa team to lay a claim to winning the World Cup.”Ghana, who reached the round of 16 in their debut four years ago and by far the best African performance at the 2006 Germany finals are making their second successive appearance.Source: Ghanafa.orglast_img read more
