Cablevision Offers 15Mbps for Same Price

In another sign of the growing competition between cable and phone companies, Cablevision plans to announce that it will offer its residential customers some of the fastest Internet connections available.

Cablevision, the nation�s fifth-largest cable provider, plans to start selling broadband connections with top speeds of 50 megabits per second to the 4.5 million households in the area where it offers service. Cablevision will also raise the speed of its current broadband service by 50 percent, to 15 megabits per second, at no additional cost.

The move comes as Verizon, Cablevision�s chief rival in the New York metropolitan area, introduces its own super-fast Internet service. In places where Verizon has installed new fiber-optic cables, consumers can buy broadband connections of up to 30 megabits per second.

The cable and phone companies have been in a battle for broadband customers because the service generates substantial profits, and because customers who get the service are more likely to sign up for a phone line or television programming package.

Trillion-Dollar Smart Power Grid Transformation

The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are rapidly gaining ground as we transition towards net-zero emissions. However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
