Google's Project 'Fi' a network of networks

Project Fi is Google’s attempt to provide affordable yet quality network service to users across the U.S. The search engine giant extended a taste of its additional data-serving feature called ‘Wi-Fi Assistant’ under the project to all Nexus users about a few months ago.

VoLTE assists users to browse data while they are on a call and helps in quick call setup. A user can easily identify a VoLTE call as signal indicators display LTE instead of falling to H [HSPA] when you make or receive a call. Though there are many other operators offering similar service in the U.S. like AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile; mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), Project Fi beats them all.

To be a beneficiary of Project Fi, a user will have to subscribe to Google’s Project Fi wireless service. Google charges a high pay of $20 a month along with $10 for every gigabyte of data a user uses for the service. However, the feature will only work if you’re one of the Fi subscribers. The update was announced by Project Fi community manager Alena in a Google Forum Post.

She concluded her post by saying,

Over the past few weeks we have been testing VoLTE with a subset of Project Fi users. We will continue to keep you informed as we progress with our testing.

Yes, you can transfer your current cellular number over to Project Fi when you sign up. For more information on how the number transfer process works please visit our help center.

Freenom ICANN registrar accreditation suspended for cybersquatting

OpenTLD, its registrar business, has been told it cannot accept new registrations or inbound transfers from July 8 to October 6 or until it provides ICANN with a full list of the names it squatted. I believe it’s the first time ICANN has suspended a registrar for this reason. ICANN has found that OpenTLD has engaged in a pattern and practice of trafficking in or use of domain names identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark of a third party in which the Registered Name Holder has no rights or legitimate interest   To avoid termination, it has to provide ICANN with a list of all of its trademark infringing names, agree to transfer them to the mark owners or delete them, and bunch of other stuff.
