The Internet of Things (IoT) has changed the traditional ways of how pest extermination works. When IoT is applied, physical devices are embedded with electronics, sensors and internet connectivity to transform the way that pest control services manage everything. An IoT-enabled device with infrared sensors can monitor a property and detect any pest activity effectively.
Speaking of internet, low income customers in California will enjoy 5 years of free internet and low-cost plans under the T-Mobile merger settlement. This settled the lawsuit that California filed to block the merger between T-Mobile and Sprint.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said that 10 million low-income households in the US with children that are in school will be eligible for free broadband internet throughout the agreement. The 5-year deal will also include $700 million worth of Wi-Fi hotspot devices. California is restricted to not more than 2 million total devices and total connections a year.
California customers will be offered $15 per month plans with unlimited talk, text and 2 gigabytes of data. The $25 plan will include 5 gigabytes. Rate plans that were held in February 2019 will continue up to 2 years.
T-Mobile and Sprint announced their plans to merge last April 2018 but California did not like the way things were done by the 2 companies. Becerra argued that the merger threatens California jobs and consumer protection and disrupt innovations in the market. The settlement included protection for California markets and people including employment.
Even if the lawsuit was rejected by a New York federal district judge, Becerra was able to secure the safeguards it wanted. The agreement with T-Mobile ensures continuous fairness, good prices and fair competition. Sprint is the 3rd largest telecommunications company in the US while T-Mobile is the 4th. AT&T and Verizon Wireless are the 1st and 2nd largest companies.
