Hashtag Trending – LTE wireless speeds and net neutrality

Wireless service in Canada is among the fastest in the world. The U.S. is about to have a fight on Net Neutrality, again. And online marketers have a new tool to use.

Searches for LTE and 4G are trending on Google. A new report from OpenSignal shows that Canadians have access to the best wireless networks in the world in terms of speed and availability. Canadians get an average speed of more than 30 Mbps, behind only South Korea and Australia. On Monday, Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains announced the government is opening the consultation process for 5G wireless spectrum.

Popular on Reddit is a conversation about protecting net neutrality in the U.S. At the root of the controversy is the Federal Communications Commission’s move to reclassify net neutrality from telecommunications service to information service. The Electronic Frontier Foundation says that would set the stage for dismantling the net neutrality foundation the FCC adopted just two years ago. The advocacy group is calling on American citizens to appeal directly to the FCC in support of net neutrality.

A new app on Product Hunt sounds like a digital marketer’s dream. Zarget’s Session Replay gives you a video replay of how users are navigating through your website. Including a map of the mouse movements. So you can find out where people are dropping off before they get to your conversion goals.

That’s what’s trending today.
