Are you tired of reading about whether Google Fiber is coming to the Triangle? Apparently a lot of your are, based on a survey - albeit a small one - published Thursday. But guess what? You have to wait a while longer, says Google. No fiber present yet.
A consortium of big tech companies including Cisco and IBM - but not Google - warn Congress and the FCC that Internet regulation as proposed by President Obama will "hurt" broadband expansion and lead to "reduced capital spending."
Lenovo to top Samsung in mobile computing; AT&T offers VR headsets; regulators OK Duke Energy solar projects; IBM idea to power poor villages; Red Hat downgrade
In today's roundup of technology news: Lenovo to pass Samsung for No. 2 in mobile computing sales, report says; AT&T offering virtual reality headsets; Duke Energy wins regulatory approval for three solar projects; IBM says use old laptop batters to power poor villages; and Red Hat stock gets a downgrade.
AT&T is formally announcing deployment of its ultra-fast Internet service known as GigaPower in Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Winston-Salem today as part of the North Carolina Next Generation Network. Durham will be added later.
It's official now: Google Fiber is offering service in parts of Austin with plans ranging from $0 per month (that's not a typo) to $130 which includes TV services. Is this a preview of what the Triangle can expect should Google pick RTP for deployment?
Communications giant AT&T says it will deploy previously announced fiber-optic network projects, including the North Carolina Next Generation Network. In a letter to the FCC and in statements provided to WRAL TechWire, AT&T says a recently announced "pause" won't impact plans announced earlier this year.
Not only is the FCC pushing back any new "net neutrality" guidelines but the chair warns that "big dogs are going to sue regardless of what comes out." That's hardly good news for backers of the N.C. Next Generation Network, which is to be built by AT&T. Fiber projects are already on hold at the telecom giant, and now the net neutrality debate is extending into sometime next year. What's this mean for NCNGN? Does this open the door for Google Fiber?
Raleigh-based Republic Wireless is the top-rated provider of prepaid wireless services, says Consumer Reports in a new survey of cell-phone service providers.
A substantial boost in download speeds helps AT&T regain the top spot from Verizon in wireless service, according to independent testing firm RootMetrics. However, Verizon keeps its grip on the top spot at RDU International Airport.
A new survey from the Human Rights Campaign finds that a record number of companies, including seven in North Carolina, received perfect scores in corporate inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Bank of America, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC and GlaxoSmithKline are among those receiving a "100" on the Corporate Equality Index.

Verizon Wireless, the country's largest mobile firm, said Friday it still uses this type of tracking, known as "super cookies." Verizon spokeswoman Debra Lewis said business and government customers don't have the code inserted. There has been no evidence that Sprint and T-Mobile have used such codes.
AT&T Mobility, the nation's second-largest cellular provider, said Friday it's no longer attaching hidden Internet tracking codes to data transmitted from its users' smartphones. The practice made it nearly impossible to shield its subscribers' identities online.
North Carolina AT&T President Venessa Harrison says the company will "continue working" with the ultra-fast North Carolina Next Generation Network project even though the telecommunications giant has put a "pause" on fiber projects. NCNGN also reaffirms its commitment to AT&T.

An event discussing the impact of gigabit Internet access on the Triangle sponsored by AT&T is still a "go" for Thursday, but whether the communications giant will proceed with the North Carolina Next Generation Network and other fiber projects in the Triangle is not clear after AT&T's CEO announced a "pause" in deployments. No one involved will comment specifically. Will AT&T's delay impact Google Fiber's decision making?
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson says the telecommunications giant will not roll out ultra-fast Internet access in some 100 cities due to the debate over Internet regulation. Several cities in the Triangle as well as the North Carolina Next Generation Network are on AT&T's fiber-optic deployment list. AT&T won't comment on possible Triangle impact.
