Centuries old?

Quote "Using a custom protocol to hide the proprietary information inside the innocuous-looking file, before it's sent to command and control servers, is a centuries-old technique used to conceal the exchange of sensitive communications."

Which centuries old servers were these?

BT superfast home fibre plans fall behind schedule. Again

Not so easy in the UK

Possibility of damaging cables or underground utilities is a considerable problem in our dense urban environment

Cambridge gets a white (space) wash

Propagation

Castle Hill was so good at blocking transmissions from the lower part of the city that the emergency services at Parkside had to locate their antennae on Shire Hall and Madingley Hill rather than on their own buildings.

The point being that Cambridge has its own propagation characteristics, and to get good coverage, hills outside the city have been used for years to overcome the problems.

Just how the triallists are going to communicate from the city with one of their "partners" in Melbourn will be interesting

Of course Ofcom will fcuk it up. They know nothing about radio propagation/frequency planning any more

WTF?

No Hills in Cambridge? lol

Then you don't know Cambridge. Castle Hill, Lime Kiln, the Gogs immediately come to mind.

4G über-auction coming next year

TV anyone?

Reactionary thought, but how about using TV frequencies for............TV?

More spectrum is needed for HD channels.

The commercialisation of Freeview means that we are unlikely to get rid of poor quality +1 and shopping channels unfortunately.

Sheffielders must retune their Freeview boxes tomorrow

"you'll have to wait for suitable set-top boxes"

NO you don't.
