When a buddy of Russ Elliott‘s asked if he’d join him in starting a telecom company, he flat out said no. While his friend had been a great help building a website he needed, the venture didn’t have any financial backing and Elliott wasn’t versed in internet connectivity.

But when his friend took the unusual step of sending him a motivational postcard — something with an iceberg and a corny message about not knowing what’s out there unless you took a risk — it played on his mind. Elliott had an MBA. He had drive. He decided to embrace the inspirational cliché.

With that, some 20 years ago Elliott helped launch what became a successful business in Colorado called Brainstorm Internet, serving as its president for 13 years.

“We were nimble and quick and had smart people on

More Than 70% of Students Who Fear Lower Grades Due to Online Learning Don’t Always Have Internet Access

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Seventy-one percent (71%) of students who expect lower grades than usual while learning remotely don’t always have access to high-speed internet, according to a new report from The Manifest, a business how-to and news website.

The survey accounts for 400 high school and college students’ impressions on remote learning in the fall 2020 semester.

Internet access is essential for students to attend classes, submit assignments, and collaborate with classmates. Students with limited access have already started to fall behind in class.

Accessibility disproportionately challenges Black, Latino, and Native American students, as well as those living in rural areas. Academic achievement gaps resulting from a lack of internet access will most severely impact these groups.

Students Expected to Purchase Expensive Back-to-School Tech Equipment

Expensive technological equipment is another barrier to entry for disadvantaged students participating in remote learning.

JobMaker Digital Business Plan to deliver faster internet

Funding for 5G trials and testbeds are on offer for Australia’s private sector under the Federal Government’s new JobMaker Digital Business Plan.

The plan, announced on Monday, aims to provide training, develop systems and establish needed infrastructure to support a greater adoption of new technologies for businesses and consumers.

By doing so, the Federal Government believes business costs will fall, consumer choice will be enhanced, and businesses will have greater flexibility interacting with customers and shareholders.

It will invest almost $800 million in new initiatives, including $22.1 million in grant funding to support the private sector to invest in 5G trials and testbeds.

A further $7.1 million will be invested in accelerating 5G while telecommunications companies will be allowed to pay by instalments for the next spectrum auction, freeing up capital for investment.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said this year’s budget would support businesses to recover from the pandemic.

Lack of internet causes many Mideast businesses to fail amid coronavirus

Small businesses in poorer Middle Eastern nations have suffered from the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic more than counterparts in most parts of the world because they are less likely to have an internet presence, an International Monetary Fund (IMF) economist says.

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Middle East and North Africa use the internet less than companies of similar size in most of the world because they lack funds and information, according to Inutu Lukonga, a senior IMF economist who works in its Middle East and Central Asia department.

These businesses comprise 90% of the region’s enterprises, Lukonga says, but receive only 10% of its bank loans because financial institutions are concerned about their viability.

“A lot of the internet-services content [originally] wasn’t in Arabic,” she told The Media Line. “It’s only now that they’re creating Arabic content so that small businesses can also adopt
