Chennai may get 3G technology

CellOne subscribers in Chennai could be the first in south India to have a taste of 3G mobile telephony with BSNL Chennai Telephones preparing to roll out next generation communications in February.

A technical team of Chinese 3 G terminal vendor Huawei Technologies is currently engaged in installing the infrastructure to support the first tranche of 1.5 lakh 3G lines that would transform the way mobile users access the web.The projected speeds on the 3G platform are said to be at least 30 times faster than 2G technology.Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi is slated to soft launch 3G services possibly in February first week and the likely dates are being worked out.According to plan, 3G services would initially be available to CellOne subscribers in Chennai before the rollout is extended to other major cities and towns in the State.Meanwhile, reports from Delhi indicate that the auctioning of spectrum has been deferred a few weeks beyond the already revised date of January 30 to enable the Centre to fix a higher reserve price for spectrum bands.Private mobile operators have been demanding a level playing field for launching 3G to negate any early mover advantage that BSNL and MTNL might get.

It is unclear as of now as to how long the telecom department proposes to put the technology on trial before going commercial.The logistics for ringing in 3 G services featuring high-speed data, video and voice transmission involves setting up an additional 1,000 base transceiver station towers. This would go hand-in-hand with the ongoing drive to augment the 2G network through the commissioning of another 2 lakh lines.

All survive in Newyork river

US Airways jet with 155 people on board ditched in the frigid Hudson River off Manhattan after apparently hitting a flock of geese on Thursday and officials said everyone was rescued.We’ve had a miracle on the Hudson. David Paterson told a news conference, calling the pilot a hero for landing the Airbus A320 plane in the fast-moving river.”The pilot somehow, without any engines, was able to land this plane … without any serious injuries,” Paterson said.New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg lauded the pilot for ensuring all those on board, including a baby, were safe.”The pilot did a masterful job of landing the plane in the river and then making sure that everybody got out,” Bloomberg said, noting that the pilot was calm enough to walk through the plane twice after landing to ensure everyone was out.

The pilot of Flight 1549 was Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger of Danville, California. Sullenberger is a former Air Force fighter pilot with 40 years flying experience, according to the website of a safety company he founded.The Federal Aviation Administration said it was investigating reports the plane hit a flock of birds after taking off from New York’s LaGuardia airport.Witnesses saw the plane glide in low for an emergency landing, kicking up a cloud of spray in the river, which runs to the west of Manhattan island.US Airways said 150 passengers and five crew were aboard the Airbus A320, headed for Charlotte, North Carolina.

Shortly after takeoff, the pilot radioed flight controllers that he had hit birds, law enforcement sources said.Mark Wilkinson, a commercial pilot waiting for takeoff at LaGuardia shortly after the crash, said the ground controller told him the plane had sucked a bird into an engine after takeoff. He told Reuters in an e-mail that there were many geese near the runways.A passenger told Reuters that a few minutes after takeoff he heard what sounded like and explosion. “The engine blew. There was fire everywhere and it smelled like gas,” said Jeff Kolodjay, from Norwalk, Connecticut.He said the pilot told passengers to brace for impact. After the aircraft ditched, he said, “People were bleeding all over. We hit the water pretty hard. It was scary.
