Where you should live if you want America’s fastest Internet service

Fastest Internet Speeds By State

What parts of America have the fastest broadband connections? The short answer is “Delaware.” The slightly longer answer is “somewhere in the northeastern U.S.” The Connectivist has posted data of peak connection speeds for every state in America and has found that the fastest services are in the eastern part of the country, led by Delaware and followed by Virginia, Washington D.C., Massachusetts, New Jersey and Connecticut. In fact, the only state in the top 10 that isn’t on the eastern seaboard is Washington, which has a peak connection speed of 56.6Mbps.

µTorrent update adds WiFi only option, spares your data plan

µTorrent Beta

Although it’s probably a long overdue addition for some, the folks from Bittorrent have now updated their Android torrent client µTorrent to offer a WiFi only download option. Previously, when using the app you ran the risk of  blowing through your entire data plan or racking up overage charges by leaving some torrents running, but no more. You’ll now be able to set it to download over WiFi only and never really worry about it.

Republic Wireless exits beta and welcomes device pre-orders

Republic Wireless

If you haven’t heard of Republic Wireless, we don’t blame you. A new carrier that’s been sitting in the ether beta for a while now, Republic is trying to take the traditional model of smartphone service and mix things up a bit. The basic premise of the service is that you get a device that’s been specially made to utilize Wifi whenever possible for data, calls and texts, and then essentially “roam” on a cellular network when you’re out of Wifi range. Probably the most interesting part of the service is that it’s just $19 per month with no contract for unlimited calls, texts and data usage.

How Google wants to make Google Now a psychic stalker version of Siri

 

Google Now Features

We’ve known about Google (GOOG) Now for months now, but Technology Review has an in-depth report on the new Android feature that details how it plans to one-up Apple’s (AAPL) popular Siri voice assistant by delivering information before you even ask for it. Anyone who thinks this sounds rather invasive is absolutely right, as Technology Review says that the software uses “the constant stream of data a smartphone collects on its owner with clues about the person’s life that Google can sift from Web searches and e-mails to guess what he or she would ask it for next.”

AT&T just pulled a dick move with FaceTime over cellular

AT&T sucks, limits FaceTime usage

It’s no secret that AT&T (T) is a terrible wireless carrier — just ask anyone who uses, or has used AT&T. Its calls drop, data is unusable in any location with more than four wireless subscribers within a square mile, and it nickel and dimes every single fucking thing. You know what set me off though? The fact that AT&T is limiting FaceTime over cellular and making subscribers switch to a new shared data plan if they want to use it. It was bad enough AT&T brazenly charges you a fee if you want to use the data you pay for on another device via tethering, but now AT&T is trying to control just what you can and can’t do with your own data, which you pay for every month, down to the specific application.
