A Federal Communications Commission initiative designed to increase access to high-speed internet recently hit a major milestone. The $14.2 billion program was created by President Joe Biden’s infrastructure law, replacing a broadband affordability program called the Emergency Broadband Benefit. The program allows low-income households to receive discounts of up to $30 per month on their internet service bills and for households on tribal lands to receive discounts of up to $75 per month.
Singapore’s government will likely open up the market again to new data centre investments “some time this year” but with stricter rules, including reportedly limiting the power capacity for new facilities to around 5 megawatts.
The new center’s mission will be to create and manage a collaborative cybersecurity ecosystem with regional businesses, high schools, community colleges, and universities and will be an incubator for cybersecurity startups.
The laws and regulations concerning digitisation will be reviewed so that they are in line with rapid technological changes, and help define the relationships between all parties involved in the implementation of this plan.
