Frontier Hammered By Minnesota AG For Its Refusal To Repair Its Broadband Network (techdirt)

For years we've explored how the nation's phone companies don't really even want to be in the broadband business. They routinely refuse to upgrade their networks, yet often lobby to ensure nobody else can deliver broadband in these neglected footprints either. Telcos in particular have a bizarre disdain for their paying customers, delivering the bare minimum (slow DSL) at the highest rates they can possibly charge without a full-scale consumer revolt. It's not surprising then that many telco DSL...

Dennis McCarthy: From the rubble of the Northridge earthquake, the best of humanity shined

Jan 17, 1994 – 4:30 a.m. – one minute before a massive 6.7 earthquake rocked our world. Mitch Schuster is standing at an elevator outside the emergency room at Northridge Hospital waiting for an orderly to take his pregnant wife, Vicki, to the delivery room upstairs. She’s in a world of pain and Mitch is losing patience waiting. The elevator door opens and he begins to wheel his wife in, but changes his mind at the last moment. He’ll give the orderly another minute. A young resident sits on th...

Minnesota AG's report reveals big telcos are literally letting their infrastructure rot

More than a decade of foot-dragging on fiber rollout has left millions of Americans dependent on taxpayer-funded copper-line infrastructure for landlines and DSL, but it's not like the carriers are plowing their no-fiber savings into copper maintenance, instead, as a report released by Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson details, incumbent telcos are literally leaving their infrastructure to rot: wires are draped across customers' lawns (and over their propane tanks!), boxes containing key ...

Sun Country Grows Every Which Way

In recent history, Sun Country has been an afterthought. It was a small airline that during the best of times was marginally profitable. It focused almost entirely on flying people from Minneapolis to… everywhere. Things have been slowly changing under new leader Jude Bricker. We’ve heard Jude talk about what he wants to do, but now we’re seeing the network strategy really ramp up. “Strategy” may be a loose word. The airline’s strategy appears to be looking for any random opportunity that ...

The best airplane liveries in the US

Most airplanes ARE a generic shade of white with a simple stripe and a logo, and there’s a perfectly good reason behind the boring color scheme: paint makes airplanes heavy. That said, some airlines choose to sacrifice a few extra available pounds to make their aircrafts pop with some cool liveries. Whether a cool paint job is meant as an eye-catching way for airlines to get a message across, a partnership with a major amusement park, or a tribute paid to a person or a group, these airplane l...

Norwegian Air cheap flights to Europ

Your days of flying to Europe for less than a car payment might be numbered. European discount carriers are dropping like old people at a church picnic, with Danish discounter Primera Air calling it quits last month, and WOW Air being an eleventh-hour cash infusion from Frontier away from total disaster this October. Now, it seems Norwegian Air, who blew up the transatlantic flight game a couple years ago with $99 fares from the US to London, Oslo, Milan, and other destinations is teetering o...

For F***'s Sake: Why Is Modern Flying Such A Soul-Crushing Time Suck?

The pilot “didn’t feel safe” flying with Beegle’s then-15-year-old daughter, Juliette, who has autism.Juliette was experiencing low blood sugar that day. Like many people with autism, she has some specific sensory issues, one of which being that she only...

“Producers United” takes EPA to task over hardship waivers in US Appellate Court

In Washington, Reuters reports that an unidentified group of biofuel producers referred to just as “Producers United” has asked a federal judge to keep the Environmental Protection Agency from continuing to issue hardship waivers to smaller oil refineries. The complaint filed in US Appellate Court alleges that the EPA’s decision to retroactively grant waivers to Frontier and Sinclair Oil earlier this year was against the law by lowering renewable fuel targets without required public notice.

Thinking of getting Verizon FIOS for home?

You may want to consider your options again. Verizon FIOS at home has been disappointing. You know that I help people with IT issues. For that reason, I needed to have reliable home Internet. Knowing that all providers have problems, I have purchased two different Internet Providers. Yes this might seem like a waste to people, but since I use it for work I count it as part of my taxes. Today I am so glad that I have done this. For the second time, Verizon FIOS isn’t working. When I called Verizo...
