Look Out, Cable: T-Mobile Is Accelerating Its 5G Home Broadband Offering

Many investors know we’re at the beginning of the 5G era. 5G wireless technology has been hyped as the next big thing, with lightning-fast speeds and low latency enabling next-generation applications we can’t even think of yet.

Another potential use for 5G that’s more immediate and quantifiable? Replacing your broadband connection. Yet while the limits of 5G technology probably wouldn’t work in the crowded city today, 5G broadband may soon be making its way to the country.

Last week, T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) announced that it will be taking its home LTE broadband project and accelerating it in a big way across the United States. And it could come at AT&T‘s (NYSE:T) expense.

As is usual for Amazon’s Prime Day and Black Friday sales, the headline discounts are deep discounts on Amazon’s own devices — everything from Alexa smart speakers to , albeit with some caveats. For instance, the Echo Dot speaker is marked down to just $19 — that’s 60% off its sticker price and more than 50% off the price it’s currently selling for — but it’s the third-generation “puck” model, not the new 2020 spherical design.

Legal drivers a premium in returning cars home: Olmsted Township Police Blotter


Warrant: Stearns Road

An officer stopped a car at 1:27 a.m. Oct. 4 on Stearns Road since the owner showed an open warrant in Florida. He learned the motorist was driving on a suspended license. Florida authorities told officers they should tell the driver about the warrant as he was out of the pickup radius. The driver was cited and given the option to have a friend take possession of the car rather than have it towed. When the friend arrived, however, she had an open warrant for her arrest through North Olmsted. That city’s police arrived shortly to pick her up. Eventually, enough people – without warrants – arrived and drove the cars away.

Juvenile complaint: Tuttle Road

Police went to the pond area on Tuttle Road at 6:26 p.m. Oct. 3. The caller said he saw two teenagers place baseball bats and masks into a
