Virginia’s voter registration website went down on Tuesday, the final day for people in the state to register ahead of Election Day. As of early Tuesday afternoon, the website was still not working. 

“Due to a network outage, the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable,” the Virginia Department of Elections wrote on its site Tuesday morning. 

Officials said on Twitter that a “fiber cut” in Chester, near the Commonwealth Enterprise Solutions Center, impacted connectivity for multiple state agencies. The cut cable, which appeared to be an accident, affected both the voting portal and the registrar’s offices. 

“We are working with our network providers to restore service as quickly as possible,” the department said. “Please check back later for your online voter registration or absentee needs.”

The Information & Broadcasting Ministry has asked private TV channels to broadcast content strictly adhering to the Programme and Advertising Codes prescribed under the Cable TV Act.

In its advisory, the Ministry stressed on the provisions in the Programming Code that states that no “programme should contain anything obscene, defamatory, deliberate, false, suggestive innuendos and half-truths.”

In addition, it stated that the Code prescribes that no programme should “criticise, malign or slander any individual in person or certain groups, segments of social, public or moral life of the country.”

The advisory by the Information & Broadcasting Ministry also noted the recent observations of the Delhi High Court in the matter of Rakul Preet Singh Vs Union of India. In its September 17, order, the Court

Pros and Cons of Cable Internet

May 1, 2020 | internet | No Comments

Being connected via a cable, the same as for cable television, has allowed many more residents of the United States to partake in the broadband bandwidth boom. This is largely due to the fact that there is already a plentiful network of coaxial cable spread across the continent, far more than fiber optic lines. You could say that cable got a head start with very little competition. Many telecom carriers are undoubtedly envious of the once entertainment revenue driven companies.
