The Biden administration says 20 internet companies have agreed to provide discounted service to people with low incomes. WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden announced Monday that 20 internet companies have agreed to provide discounted service to people with low incomes, a program that could effectively make tens of millions of households eligible for free service through an already existing federal subsidy. It’s a necessity,” Biden said at a sun-drenched rose garden event with representatives from participating companies, as well as members of Congress. The $1 trillion infrastructure package passed by Congress last year included $14.2 billion funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program, which provides $30 monthly subsidies ($75 in tribal areas) on internet service for millions of lower-income households. Participating companies that offer service on tribal lands are providing $75 rates in those areas, the equivalent of the federal government subsidy in those areas.

The Poco F4 GT managed to keep the Galaxy A53 away from the first spot last week, but the Samsung mid-ranger regains the lead in week 18.

The Galaxy A73 slipped top fifth, just ahead of the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, which retained its sixth spot from last week. This means there's no room for the Nord 2 CE Lite and Xiaomi 12 Pro from last week's top 10.

Ukrainian officials said before Friday's evacuations that a few hundred civilians were also trapped there, and fears for their safety have increased as the battle has grown fiercer in recent days.

OnePlus has been focusing on its mid-range offerings lately and the latest leak is in the same category – the name “OnePlus Nord 3” was spotted on the company’s Indian site by leakster Mukul Sharma. There wasn’t much besides the name, but we have already heard plenty about the phone. That roadmap was more or less correct about the Nord CE 2 Lite and 10R launches, it is yet to be proven correct about the Nord 2T, so take it with a pinch of salt. A OnePlus Nord 3 mention was spotted on oneplus.inAnyway, rumored specs (by Digital Chat Station) suggest that the Nord 3 will be powered by the Dimensity 8100 (like the 10R) with up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage. All this sounds too much like the 10R, so it is quite possible this was a case of mistaken identity as the OnePlus 10R already launched in India.
