I don't know what you're paying for home internet service, but I'll wager it's more than you'd like it to be -- and probably inching up all the time. For example, Comcast charges me $106 a month just for internet (I ditched TV about a year ago), a rate that seems to increase a few bucks every couple months. So when I learned that T-Mobile Home Internet was available in my area, promising unlimited high-speed service for a flat $50 monthly -- equipment, taxes and fees included -- I jumped at the chance to try it. (Note that availability is limited for the time being; the service is slowly rolling out to cities across the US and is technically in a pilot phase right now. That means things could change when there's an official rollout.) See it at T-Mobile Obviously, I had concerns. Would it be fast enough for everyday computing? Could it handle 4K streaming video?

Will acting LG Soundararajan invite N Rangaswamy to form a government or recommend President's rule, so close to the assembly election, asks N Sathiya Moorthy. IMAGE: V Narayanasamy hands over his resignation as chief minister of Puducherry to acting Lieutenant Governor Tamizhisai Soundararajan, February 22, 2021. Photograph: ANI Photo The exit of the Congress-Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam coalition government in the Union territory of Puducherry was being anticipated for long. And when the fall came, it owed to the abrasiveness of Congress Chief Minister V Narayanasamy for most part, and the continued indifference of the party high command for many years. As social media put it, Narayanaswamy humiliated fellow Congress chief minister P Shanmugam, considered the 'Bhishma Pithamah' of Union territory politics, by ensuring that no party MLA stepped down for the former to win an assembly seat within six months of assuming office. Today, the very same Narayanasamy had to bow … [Read more...] about What next in Puducherry?
