Orange and Proximus have both chosen to use Nokia and Ericsson equipment for their respective 5G rollouts in Belgium.

The move will see both Orange and Proximus drop Huawei gear, which had previously been used as part of the telcos’ 4G networks.

The two telcos will use Nokia equipment to roll out 5G and progressively renew existing 2G/3G/4G mobile radio networks. Specifically, Nokia will build one radio access network (RAN) and one 5G network each for the telcos. 

Meanwhile, Ericsson will be responsible for building out the cores of the telcos’ 5G networks.

“The decision to collaborate with Ericsson is an important step in the execution of our network strategy. Proximus is committed to building the best gigabit network for Belgium, and the renewal of our mobile network equipment is a key element in this strategy for the coming years,” Proximus network business chief Geert Standaert said.

According to Chris Larsen, co-founder and executive chairman of Ripple Labs, the company is likely to move its headquarters overseas because due to the regulatory stance of the federal government towards the crypto industry. 

Larsen made the comments at the LA Blockchain Summit on Tuesday. He argued that almost every country besides the U.S. has a favorable system to regulate crypto, adding that the U.K. and Singapore top the list of likely new locations if the San Francisco-based company indeed decides to leave the U.S. 

Ripple has been in an ongoing legal fight with investors who allege that the company violated state and federal securities laws by selling the digital currency XRP. The firm maintains that although it owns a large amount of XRP, the network used to settle XRP transactions is decentralized.

“Purchasing XRP is not an ‘investment’ in Ripple; there is no common enterprise between Ripple and XRP

Canadian marijuana company Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB) had a dreadful 2019; its stock lost 56% of its value over the year, compared with a 36% decline in the industry benchmark Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences ETF. External headwinds in Canada, along with Aurora’s own haphazard acquisitions, dragged down revenue and made profit challenging, while expenses kept piling up. All these factors led to its decline, and hopes of the company recovering anytime soon were minimal.

Hence, its third-quarter results at the end of March came as a pleasant surprise. The company reported a surge in revenue — to be precise, a year-over-year jump of 35% to 75.5 million Canadian dollars. Aurora gave a sneak peek into its fourth-quarter results on Sept. 8 when it discussed some impairment charges and a decline in revenue. But investors hoped to get some good news from the actual results, and the stock was up 16%

When Elon Musk launched a Tesla into space, it carried a sign saying “Don’t panic” on the dashboard – but the billionaire was in a more doom-laden form this week.

The SpaceX and Tesla pioneer warned, in an interview with The New York Times podcast Sway, that travel to other planets was necessary as Earth would be engulfed by the Sun.

Speaking to host Kara Swisher, Musk said: “I think this is fundamentally important for ensuring the long-term survival of life as we know it, to be a multi-planet species.

“Eventually the Sun is going to expand and engulf Earth. It will expand and incinerate Earth. It is for sure going to happen – but not any time soon.”
