Android Distribution numbers for 2021 are here, closer look at Android versions

Published

on

Previously, Google used to release Andriod distribution data every month. But that tradition ended at the end of 2018, and now, we only get distribution numbers on an annual basis. A year has passed since Google published the Android distribution numbers, but the company has finally released the latest data for 2021.

Here are the Android distribution numbers for 2021 and they will take a closer look at the current status of the various Android versions(via-9to5Google). The data is believed to be three weeks old and depends on the number of Android devices that have been accessing the Google Play Store in the last seven days.

According to a report published by Google on Android Studio, Android 11 R is running on 24.3% of all active Android devices. However, this is not the most popular version of Android, as it loses Android 10, which topped the list with a 26.5% market share.

In December last year, Google revealed that Android 11A had the fastest adoption rate of any version of Android, while at the same time surpassing the Android 10 adoption rate.

Meantime, Android 9, which was released in 2018, was ranked third with an 18.2% share, followed by Android 8.1 Orio (9.7%). There is no mention of Android 12 in the data, which was released only a month ago and it is not surprising considering that it is only available for certain devices.

It is noteworthy that no variant with a distribution of less than 0.1% is shown in this data. So it is possible that there are thousands of Android devices running older versions, but they are not on this list as they make up no more than 0.1% of the total active installations.

T-Mobile agreed to pay $19.5 million to FCC for last year’s 911 outage in US

Published

on

It must have been a really painful experience if you had to contact the respondent first and the 911 call did not connect, but the same thing happened to thousands of T-Mobile customers in the US on June 15, 2020, in 12 hours.

As a result of the alarming incident, the wireless carrier this week agreed to pay $19.5 million in a settlement with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

As a result of this horrific incident, the wireless carrier this week agreed to pay $19.5 million in settlements with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). According to the FCC report, 911 interruptions nationwide last year resulted in a “complete failure” of more than 23,000 emergency calls.

The FCC stated that the “brief failure of the leased fiber transport link on the T-Mobile network” was the initial cause of the useless time and that it was out and combined due to a temporary routing error in the single location. The restoration was also affected by a temporary failure. ”

In an extensively reported statement on the settlement with the FCC this week, T-Mobile said it had improved the reliability of its emergency systems to make 911 available to customers when needed.

It now “goes beyond FCC’s research and continues our focus on our ongoing network build-up,” the company said.

“We understand how critical reliable connectivity is to ensure public safety and we take that responsibility very seriously,” T-Mobile said in the statement. “We have built resiliency into our emergency systems to ensure that our 911 elements are available when they’re needed. This was a short-term isolated outage and we immediately took steps to further enhance our network to prevent this type of event from happening in the future.”

This is not the first time T-Mobile customers have encountered problems calling 911. In 2014, several interruptions blocked the service for a total of three hours. The carrier agreed to pay the FCC $ 17.5 million to resolve the issue.

Verizon, AT&T agreed to limit 5G midband power to avoid aircraft interference

Published

on

Both Verizon and AT&T have agreed to temporarily reduce the power of their new mid-band 5G towers, following concerns from the aviation industry, eliminating fears that the new spectrum could be used for equipment in commercial and military aircraft.

When the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced plans to auction off a new segment of the C-band spectrum last year, several commercial aviation groups expressed concern that these new 5G frequencies could lead to catastrophic failures in avionics.

As a result, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the U.S. The Department of Transportation has jointly called on the FCC to suspend the auction until a more comprehensive investigation into the matter can take place.

However, the FCC went so far as to disagree with studies suggesting that the concentration of 5G telecommunications in the new 3.7–3.98GHz C-band may end up in the 4.2–4.4GHz range used by aviation equipment such as radar altimeters.

Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal reported that Verizon and AT&T had agreed to delay their mid-band 5G rollout in early 2022 at the request of FAA officials. According to the WSJ, Verizon and AT&T have sent a joint letter to FCC Chair Jessica Rosenvorsel calling for six months to re-energize their 5G cell towers to give aviation security researchers time to further study the effects of the new spectrum.

AT&T and Verizon are both on track to launch their new mid-band 5G deployments on January 5, 2022, and officials note that they do not expect temporary restrictions during the initial rollout to have any serious impact on bandwidth.
