first_img We tested Verizon’s new 5G network Share your voice Mobile Tags 8:24 Motorola Moto Z3 $480 Comments CNET may get a commission from retail offers. 7 Review • Moto Z3 review: First 5G upgradable phone is a solid midrange choice Mentioned Above Motorola Moto Z3 Verizon’s 5G network is live in Chicago and Minneapolis.  Verizon A week ahead of schedule, Verizon on Wednesday turned on its 5G network in parts of Chicago and Minneapolis. CNET went to Chicago to test it with the Moto Z3. To experience 5G, Verizon customers need to have a Motorola Moto Z3 phone with a 5G Moto Mod. The addition, available now, costs about $200 and attaches magnetically to the phone. Customers on Verizon’s postpaid or unlimited plans get unlimited 5G for an extra $10 per month. The first three months of 5G are free.Verizon said customers on its 5G Ultra Wideband network in Chicago and Minneapolis could see speeds between 450 Mbps to 1Gbps and latency connecting to the network less than 30 milliseconds. “Verizon customers will be the first in the world to have the power of 5G in their hands,” said Hans Vestberg, Verizon’s chairman and chief executive officer, in the release.Read: Testing Verizon’s 5G network almost made we weep real tears For Chicago, the 5G service is concentrated in the West and South Loop areas near landmarks like Union Station, Willis Tower, The Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park and The Chicago Theatre. Minneapolis customers’ service is concentrated in the downtown area, like Downtown East and West. The service is available near landmarks like the Minneapolis Convention Center, the Minneapolis Central Library, the Mill City Museum, Target Center and First Avenue venues, The Commons, areas of Elliot Park and in the Verizon store in The Mall of America.Read: Verizon defends its 5G network’s rocky start, throws shade at AT&T and T-MobileBelow is a map showing cities that currently have some 5G coverage:5G, the next generation of cellular tech, has been touted as the life-changing foundation for tech trends like augmented reality and telemedicine. Virtually every major Android handset maker has talked up plans to launch a 5G device this year. However, coverage will be limited at the start, and those 5G phones likely won’t be cheap.AT&T’s 5G network went live in December in a dozen cities. But until 5G phones arrive later this year, it’ll only be useful with Netgear’s Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot, a portable device that creates its own Wi-Fi network so you can link phones, laptops and tablets to the 5G network.Sprint has said its 5G network will launch in May, and T-Mobile says its full 5G launch will happen in the second half of the year.Verizon plans to expand its 5G coverage to 30 cities by the end of 2019. Originally published April 3, 8:54 a.m. PT.Update, 10:30 a.m. PT: Adds more background on 5G networks.

Airbus EFan becomes first electric plane to cross Channel

first_imgClose The Airbus E-Fan took off from Lydd airfield in Kent and became the first twin engine electric flight to cross the English Channel on 10 July, landing in Calais, France.Professor Simon Bradley, head of the Airbus Global Innovation Network, said it was a historic day in the companys history, more than 100 years after Frenchman Louis Bleriot completed the first flight across the English Channel in 1909.Were obviously always pushing the boundaries. This is the very first time we have flown an all-electric aircraft over the water, across the Channel, he said.Airbus test pilot Didier Esteyne completed the flight in 37 minutes and said that piloting an electric flight felt different from traditionally powered aircraft.Its closer than a glider. Of course, there is a little bit of noise, but less than any other aeroplane first and also, there is no vibration at all. Its smooth and its very quiet. Thats very important. Its a pleasure to fly this plane, he said.The E-Fan is a light two-seater aircraft, weighing 600kg; it can reach a maximum speed of 220km per hour.Professor Bradley said that people shouldnt have safety concerns over electric powered flights.These days, people use batteries in all the devices they have at home. They have batteries in their mobile phones; the batteries we are using today are standard lithium batteries. They are not anything strange. I think people will take it when it has been certified and when it has been proven to be safe. This is one step on that journey, he said.Its hoped that electric powered planes would help to cut carbon emissions significantly from flying.last_img read more

King of Clubs

first_imgTell us a bit about the plans you have for the Delhi chapter of PangaeaI’m a firm believer that the bricks and mortar, including to a degree, design, have little do with an ultra-lounge or clubs’ success.  It’s all about the ‘Party’.  Who ever has the best party in a city,  gets all the fun people.  This is very nightclub class #101.  As for the design, we chose not to use  Pangaea’s tried and tested fully tented, African tribal theme.  Pangaea completely took New York, Miami, Spain, London, and Singapore, by storm.  In India, we are going with a highly opulent, fine art related theme, which is absolutely spectacular and I hope the uber wealthy Indians will appreciate.  Regardless of design, our philosophy and psychology that drive our brand and party will be no different than all other Pangaeas.  If something isn’t broken why fix it.Why use the name Pangaea?The super-continent of Pangaea is the ultimate primal, primitive beginning of the tectonic movement of the earth’s crust, that over millions of years shaped the continents and way of life we  know now.  I wanted to go back to the absolute roots of the world to remind me to go back to basics in developing and operating an ultra-lounge; service, drama, fantasy, escape, revelry, and ultra exclusivity.  It’s called the perfect party!What sort of clientele are we going to witness in Pangaea?Our clientele, or guests as we like to refer to them, have for 32 years always been the elite, super affluent, ridiculously famous, most fashionable and beautiful, including royal familiars and heads of state. The list of Pangaea guests of extreme fame is endless. The party crowd in Delhi is different from those across the world, what are the plans?People party, the world over, exactly the same.  The dynamics of why they go out, what they hope to find or achieve, the aspects of escape, fantasy, networking, meeting and greeting is universal.  Some countries have more highly developed nightlife scenes than others.  This is due to a vast range of pre-conditions, and a hierarchy of wants and needs.  We hope, if lucky, and with  your support, to be India’s first globally renowned club.  It all depends on whether you like, love it, or hate it.  At Pangaea, we don’t forget where our bread is buttered.last_img read more
