No School Like The #NewTMobile; Communications New-Giant Pushing 5G Out December 6th

What a difference 6 months makes.

T-Mobile announced today, under the hashtag #NewTMobile several things -
  • Low Prices
  • 5G Nationwide
  • And all on December 6th

They did all this with a livestream featuring John Legere.

T-Mobile is pushing a narrative about this being for the greater good, in order to sooth the 5 of us who were concerned about the (approved by the FCC) merger between T-Mobile and Sprint.

 There are services they mention that lean toward that -

  • Free Unlimited Data Plans for First Responders 
  • Lower pricing.
  • Free Internet for low-income families affected by the Homework Gap - When students can't do online homework because they simply have no internet service. (And that's why municipal broadband needs to be a thing nationwide)
  • A hashtag - #5GForGood


So, how does 5G work?
 2.5GHz Spectrum should be ready on launch. How is that different than the current speeds available?

Remember - in April, Verizon tested their 5G in Chicago - to 'Needs improvement' results. With the combo of Sprint + T-Mobile coverage, and the fact that this is coming out 8 months later, it should work better.

The new pricing - T-Mobile Connect - is as follows:

  •  2GB of Data a month - 15$
  • 5GB of Data a month - 25$
  • .5GB extra every month after a year.
I used to sell cell phones - Verizon and AT&T were the popular ones then - And the data pricing was a lot more for 5GB a month, If I remember correctly, it was about 60$ a month. Provided that coverage is good in your area, this is really nice.

I've yet to find word about migrating plans from older users, or military discounts.

There were a few Questions answered and asked during the even that were so heavy on the PR statements, I just took the tech bits out and posted it in the appropriate sections above.

They also mentioned the plethora of jobs this would create - Remember my name when the time comes.

EMPLOYERS: Are you ready for 5G?

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
