The craft flew at a height of around 14 kilometres, with a standard smartphone used to complete VoLTE and video calls, data downloads and web browsing by connecting to Deutsche Telekom’s terrestrial mobile network.Deutsche Telekom stated it achieved data rates of 70Mb/s in the downlink and 20Mb/s up, using a 10MHz block of 2.1GHz spectrum.The operator was testing the ability of an aircraft to deliver connectivity spanning a diameter of up to 100 kilometres, stating this could help cover areas in “a radio shadow” caused by their geographic location.“Particularly in areas that are difficult to access with traditional mobile masts, flying base stations will be a useful and cost-efficient addition to our mobile communications network”, Bruno Jacobfeuerborn, CEO of the company’s Deutsche Funkturm subsidiary, noted.The test was conducted in partnership with Stratospheric Platforms, which is developing a hydrogen-powered, remote-controlled aircraft scheduled to fly in mid-2022.

Yes, 98 points. That’s two from 100 in case you are bad at math.>Conway Springs CardinalsAccording to the Wichita Eagle, that’s a record for most points scored in a game.While the Cardinals were able to score 98 points and account for 729 yards of total offense, they did so in just 38 plays. That’s better than 19 yards every time Conway Springs snapped the ball.“We never thought we would be able to do anything like that,” Matt Biehler told the Wichita Eagle. “The kids executed the play that was drawn up for them and we had a lot of big, explosive plays.”Conway Springs led 66-12 at halftime, then tacked on four more touchdowns in the second half. The Cardinals attempted only one pass, which resulted in a 65-yard touchdown in the first quarter.Trenton Jones (181), Riley Akiu (160), and Colton Terhune (156) all finished the game with more than 150 rushing yards, as they combined to average 22.6 yards per touch.The starters were pulled early in the third quarter, but the Cardinals’ backups scored three more times. Biehler said it was not intentional and points out all three touchdowns were scored from more than 30 yards from the end zone.“We ran 90 percent of our plays between the tackles,” Biehler said. “Our kids just executed well and came off the ball fast and played hard. When the kids got in the open field, they just continued to run. It’s one of those things where we just executed one of our basic plays really well and they ran hard.”Belle Plaine coach Jason Jinkens said that Conway Springs “was not unsportsmanlike in any way” and said his defense “just couldn’t get stops.”The Dragons were led by Bo Gooch, who completed 20 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Tristen Warren caught three passes for 112 yards, while Taylor Douglass, Caleb Stover, and Eli Wiseman all caught touchdown passes.Box score can be found here: Conway Springs – Box Score Report – 9_2_2017Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.
Both players held serve in the opening four games until Hantuchova played a forehand wide to drop the fifth.

I’ve never done that in my career and never thought I’d be able to,” the former World No.5 said. “It’s always a special feeling playing in Pattaya. I’ve felt great here since the first match, and I’m very proud I kept it up all week.”It was a breakthrough tournament meanwhile for Tomljanovic, regardless of the final result – she had never even been to a WTA semifinal before, let alone a WTA final.Spectators applaud both players at the end of a pulsating singles final.“There are too many positives from the week. I’m going to try not to dwell on this too much,” said the 21-year old Croat. “I’ll just try to learn from it. There are things I can learn from this match and the week.

The 31-year-old Hantuchova, who saved two match points in Saturday’s semi-final against Marina Erakovic, took two hours and seven minutes to become the first player to win the tournament three times after also securing the title in 2011 and 2012.Slovakia’s Daniela Hantuchova holds up the champion’s trophy after beating Croatia’s Ajla Tomljanovic in the final of the PTT Thailand Open at the Dusit Thani resort in Pattaya, Sunday, Feb. 15.

But Ajla has a great future ahead of her. She’s also a very nice girl. It’s nice to have somebody like her in the game. And like I said on the court, I’m sure she’ll have many more finals to come.”
