AT&T Could Launch Ridiculous 20-Gigabit Home Internet Next Year

AT&T

Back in January, AT&T started offering crazy-fast 5-Gigabit fiber connections for select homes. But AT&T’s latest achievement makes 5-Gigabit internet look like child’s play—it’s the first company to reach 20-Gigabit symmetric speeds in a lab test. And it could offer 20-Gigabit service in 2023.

It took several years for AT&T to create a strong fiber infrastructure. But now that a large number of people can access AT&T fiber, the company is ready to make massive technological strides. Multi-gig fiber was already impressive, but 20-Gigabit is just crazy.

And these are symmetrical speeds, meaning that you could get 20Gbps downloads and uploads. For reference, fetching a game like Fortnite from the Epic Games Store would take less than a minute with 20Gbps down.

Eddie Barker, AT&T’s assistant VP of mobility and access architecture (what a long title), explained the game plan to CNET. He says that AT&T plans to launch 20-Gigabit fiber by late 2023 or early 2024, an impressive prospect that would cement AT&T as the fastest consumer ISP.

Most people don’t need 20-Gigabit fiber, though. And considering that the 5-Gig plan costs $180 a month, I’d hate to see the cost of 20-Gig. For what it’s worth, Barker says that the 20-Gig rollout will include a few slower tiers, such as 10-Gig and 15-Gig fiber.

Toyota Tundra Pickup, BZ4X EV Recalled for Separate Issues     - CNET

What’s happening

Toyota issued two voluntary recalls for the Tundra pickup and BZ4X EV, affecting more than 46,000 cars in the US.

Why it matters

Toyota urged BZ4X owners to not drive their cars until recall work is completed.

What’s next

The repair work will be completed free of charge, and owners will be notified in July.

Toyota announced a pair of voluntary safety recalls this week affecting two of its newest products. The 2022 Tundra pickup and 2023 BZ4X electric SUV are the subjects of two separate recalls that cover more than 46,000 vehicles in the US.

The Tundra recall concerns rear axle nuts that can loosen over time and potentially fall off. “If complete separation occurs, this can affect vehicle stability and brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash,” Toyota said in a statement. Owners of the defective trucks will be notified by the end of July, and Toyota says approximately 46,000 Tundras are affected.

The BZ4X recall is significantly smaller; Toyota says roughly 260 vehicles are involved. This one is far more serious, however. “After low-mileage use, all of the hub bolts on the wheel can loosen to the point where the wheel can detach from the vehicle,” Toyota said. It’s pretty obvious why this is not good.

In fact, Toyota says the affected BZ4X SUVs should not be driven until a fix is performed. However, “no remedy is available at this time,” Toyota said. “Until the remedy is available, any authorized Toyota dealer will pick up the vehicle and provide a loaner vehicle free of charge to the owner.”

This recall also applies to the BZ4X’s kissin’ cousin, the Subaru Solterra. According to Reuters, about 2,600 Solterras are affected globally, though a US spokesperson said none of the EVs have been delivered to customers.
