Telecom billing solutions are expected to be a major driving force for telecom businesses.Small gestures like discounts, transparency, self-care option, better customer experience etc.can make huge difference in attracting customers.While the bigger players in the market have the finances to implement their very own telecom operation and billing systems, it is the smaller MVNOs who find it tough to innovate their services.The best software solutions receive constant updates.They are always in sync with new technical specifications (e.g., the ones laid by 3GPP) and compliances created by regulatory bodies (e.g., Federal Communications Commission in the US).Any laxity in adhering to the new updates or compliances can have a major bearing on the results that you get.
In the early 1970s, following years of resistance to the idea, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began setting aside a range of radio frequencies for radio telephony.Near the end of that decade, a trial of cellular phone technology had been conducted in Chicago, and the world’s first commercial cellular phone service was introduced in Tokyo, Japan.By the early 1980s, the FCC was issuing wireless telephony licenses and setting up metropolitan and rural jurisdictions (so-called metropolitan statistical areas and rural service areas), and, by the middle of the decade, first-generation wireless systems were being deployed in the United States.These systems were based on analog cellular technology using the advanced mobile phone system (or AMPS) technology that had been developed by Bell Labs.Cellular technology was being deployed in other countries, as well, although the technology and standards adopted internationally were very different from those used in the United States.Thus began one of today’s most vibrant and competitive industries—competition among wireless providers in today’s market is fierce, and new products and services emerge almost on a daily basis now.Growing consumer demand and the need to make better use of available spectrum resources fueled the development of a second generation of wireless technologies (also commonly referred to as 2G technologies).This second generation marked the transition to a fully digital technology, providing enhanced quality and enabling better use of spectrum resources.
The Amazon-led space venture is gearing up to launch thousands of satellites into orbit in order to offer internet service to underserved regions.
Elon Musk said Friday that Starlink users should be able to move their satellite internet hardware between addresses by the end of the year.
From SpaceX's Starlink to Amazon's Project Kuiper and Telesat in Canada, these are the biggest names in the satellite-broadband market right now.

SpaceX’s new Starlink satellite internet service is in a very limited beta testing period right now, but the company is already thinking ahead: as first noted by CNBC, SpaceX has filed an application with the FCC for Starlink components that would allow the service to work on moving vehicles. Big moving vehicles, that is — Elon Musk tweeted that the existing Starlink terminals are too big for Tesla’s vehicles, and the idea is targeted at planes, RVs, trucks, and ships.
Not connecting Tesla cars to Starlink, as our terminal is much too big. This is for aircraft, ships, large trucks & RVs.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 8, 2021
This would be a big change for Starlink, which right now does not even allow customers to move the existing...

Internet should become a lot more affordable in New York after Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill that requires all Internet Service Providers operating in New York state to offer a $15 a month broadband option for low-income consumers.
According to NY Assembly member Amy Paulin (via Bloomberg), the average price of broadband in New York is currently $50. This new bill caps the price at $15 for regular broadband and $20 for high-speed broadband, but only for those who qualify as low income. That’s still over 7 million people in 2.7 million households according to a press release from Cuomo’s office.
This is a remarkable move toward making broadband internet the affordable utility most people treat it as. Cuomo’s office told The Verge...

The Federal Communications Commission has released a new speed test app to help measure internet speeds across the country, available on both Android and iOS.
The FCC Speed Test App works similarly to existing speed-testing apps like Ookla’s and Fast by Netflix, automatically collecting and displaying data once users press the “start testing” button. According to the FCC, the data collected through the app will inform the agency’s efforts to collect more accurate broadband speed information and aid its broadband deployment efforts.
The FCC’s Speed Test app allows users to test their speeds and share the data.
