Nigeria’s Fastest Growing Internet Service Provider Expands Internet Access with Cambium Networks Wireless Technology

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Cambium Networks (NASDAQ: CMBM), a leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, today announced it is supplying Tizeti Network Limited, Nigeria’s leading public Wi-Fi operator, with an end-to-end wireless fabric solution. Cambium will help Tizeti expand its ISP operations in Africa’s most populous nation and meet customers’ increased demand for quality and high-speed connectivity, which has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Cambium equipment will also be deployed in Ghana, as Tizeti expands its Express Wi-Fi coverage.

With more than 1.5 million users, Tizeti is the fastest-growing internet service provider in Nigeria – a nation with almost 200 million people with relatively low broadband penetration. The company recently hit a major milestone in the growth of its ISP operations in Nigeria by delivering over 70,000 GB per day of traffic to its subscribers using Cambium wireless networking technology. The company is now expanding its network using Cambium’s cnPilot Wi-Fi access points with ePMP fixed wireless wide area distribution, and cnMaestro™ cloud-based management platform. By using solar power in the majority of its sites, Tizeti is able to rapidly deploy a highly resilient network, despite the challenging local conditions. As part of this effort, Tizeti has also begun deploying Cambium technology in Ghana to deliver gigabit broadband speeds over wireless.

“We are excited to have crossed this important network threshold in record time,” said Kendall Ananyi, Founder and CEO at Tizeti. “This would have been impossible without Cambium’s high-performance technology and disruptive economics. As we continue to invest in our core infrastructure to bring affordable, high-speed internet access to local communities around the country, end-to-end wireless solutions like Cambium’s comprising Wi-Fi access and fixed wireless broadband backhaul will be key to help us deliver the high performance and reliability our

Invoca Study Finds Increased Role of Website Experience and Customer Service in Big-Ticket Purchases During COVID-19

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — There’s no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives: it is changing the way we work, how we interact with family and friends, and the way we shop. A new report from Invoca, “High-Stakes Purchases and Consumer Confidence in the COVID Era,” highlights data from a survey of 500 U.S. adults to understand specifically how consumers are approaching expensive and complex purchases in this new environment. The data uncovers important findings for businesses aiming to give consumers confidence in making these complicated purchases online. 

Despite the economic downturn brought on by COVID, Invoca’s report finds people are still making high-stakes purchases, such as cars, insurance policies, wireless plans, and big-ticket home improvement items. However, they’re changing the way they research and buy these items, in many cases moving entirely online. For example, the survey found online purchases in automotive grew 115% since March and increased 85% in home services. That said, consumers have important concerns when shopping online: People are most concerned that they won’t be able to verify the product or service quality before purchasing (36%), that they’ll choose the wrong product or service (22%), that refunds will be complicated (21%) and that they won’t get the best deal (19%).

Given the level of cost and complexity these types of purchases require, the report uncovered how brands can help consumers feel more confident when it comes to making these purchases online.

  • Brands must create a smooth online experience with options to get live help: For consumers making complex purchases online, it’s just as important to provide them with an option to get live, expert sales assistance as it is to have a fully functional website across devices. 81% of consumers said that just having a

SpaceX Starlink internet service gearing up for public beta soon, says Elon Musk

After a series of delays due to unfavourable weather conditions, the latest SpaceX Starlink mission launched last week on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 7:29 a.m. PDT. This added 60 more satellites that are intended to beam down high-speed internet from space. This brings the total number of low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites from the privately-owned space firm to almost 800. It will not end just yet, as more are planned to go up in the future. The service is expected to go online for its beta testing phase soon.

Elon Musk said, “Once these satellites reach their target position, we will be able to roll out a fairly wide public beta in northern US and hopefully southern Canada.” This is just the initial phase, as SpaceX plans to increase coverage moving forward to eventually provide a constellation that can deliver reliable broadband internet services across the globe, reports ZDNet. He added: “Other countries to follow as soon as we receive regulatory approval.”

Perhaps the most recent test of its capabilities was last month in the wake of the devastating wildfires that destroyed local communications infrastructure. Last month, the residents and emergency responders in the town of Malden in Washington were able to use Wi-Fi services provided by SpaceX Starlink satellites at the time. Musk noted that it was a special case scenario wherein it was able to help folks who needed internet connectivity given the situation.

Originally, the target speeds were set at approximately 100 megabits per second. Nevertheless, this is expected to improve as the satellite constellation grows later on. The official website states: “With performance that far surpasses that of traditional satellite internet, and a global network unbounded by ground infrastructure limitations, Starlink will deliver high-speed

Waymo Opens Robo-taxi Service To The Public In US City

Waymo, the autonomous car unit of Google-parent Alphabet, opened its robo-taxi project to the general public in the US city of Phoenix on Thursday, becoming the first widely available driverless ride service.

Now that the project has shifted out of its test phase, anyone signed up through the Waymo One smartphone app can summon autonomous vehicles to travel throughout the Arizona city’s metro area, chief executive John Krafcik said.

“Members of the public service can now take friends and family along on their rides and share their experience with the world,” he added.

“We’ll start with those who are already a part of Waymo One and, over the next several weeks, welcome more people directly into the service through our app.”

The Waymo One app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Waymo started testing a fully driverless ride service in Phoenix some three years ago with self-driving technology built into Chrysler Pacifica vehicles.

Between five and 10 percent of rides through its service so far in 2020 have been taken in fully driverless vehicles by an exclusive group of riders who signed non-disclosure agreements.

“We expect our new fully driverless service to be very popular, and we’re thankful to our riders for their patience as we ramp up availability to serve demand,” Krafcik said.

Waymo plans to bolster the ride service fleet with vehicles that use self-driving technology but also have safety operators behind the wheel.

Waymo early this year raised $2.25 billion in its first external funding round to accelerate its deployment of autonomous cars and trucks.

Born in a Google lab devoted to big-vision new technology, Waymo became
