Well, it's pretty easy to tell which U.S. carriers are doing well, and which aren't. Verizon and AT&T recently extended the length of time required for its customers to get a subsidy on a new phone, while T-Mobile and Sprint are both making some... Read...
T-Mobile + MetroPCS. That's a thing now, remember? And it seems that the former is well ahead of schedule when it comes to integrating networks with the latter. A release shot out this week from T-Mobile makes clear that just six weeks after the... Read...
These days, it's a spectrum turf war for carriers. The more spectrum they have, the more power and coverage they have... so they'll do anything to acquire it. It's a highly limited asset, and Sprint is a carrier that needs more spectrum in the worst... Read...
The concept of a mobile carrier is changing drastically. Last week, even AT&T dove into the prepaid arena with AIO Wireless, and T-Mobile USA is attempting to get rid of the conventional contract altogether. Now, there's another player: Zact... Read...
It's about time, isn't it? U.S. Cellular customers have waited six long, grueling years, and while other carriers have slowly but surely slid the iPhone into their lineups, USCC remained silent. Sure, it expanded coverage, gained LTE and offered up... Read...
As carrier networks gravitate more and more towards data (and less towards pure voice services), Sprint has announced a bolstering that'll position it to serve its future customers -- folks who will no doubt be clamoring for plenty of IP-based... Read...
You know, this is finally starting to feel like a trend. And it's certainly a trend we're happy to get behind. The trend of high(er)-speed Internet is seemingly sweeping the developed world, with fiber-based solutions and ISPs offering 1Gbps+ speeds... Read...
Sprint lost a lot (a lot!) of time in the 4G war by selecting WiMAX while everyone else waited for LTE to become the de facto choice of carriers. Now, the carrier's trying to right the ship, and it's slowly but surely introducing a swath of new LTE... Read...
You know, it's a funny thing -- it seems that while the Big Four compete against one another for wireless sales in the U.S., they sure don't offer a lot of differentiation. Each carrier charges roughly the same thing each money, offers roughly the... Read...
T-Mobile has a major press event scheduled for this coming Tuesday, and if you wanted a clue at what the carrier may be revealing, take a look at this. The so-called "UNcarrier" has revealed some new pricing plans early, and they're actually fairly... Read...
Well, it's good to see the ball rolling on this one already. In January, the US government deemed it illegal to unlock your cell phone without explicit carrier permission - and obviously, that didn't go down too well with consumers. Almost... Read...
It's a subtle movement, but an important one. Americans are slowly but surely growing tired of the same 'ole politics involving conventional two-year mobile contracts. New flagship phones are hitting the market every six months, but users have to... Read...
In recent years, US Cellular has grown from just another regional carrier, to a carrier that's getting practically everything that the big guys are getting -- except the iPhone, of course. That aside, even LTE has come quickly to USCC customers, and... Read...
In a way, America and Canada have a lot in common. Including a ton of land borders, and some pretty great political relations. It's hardly a surprise that visitors from the Great White North visit the U.S. quite a bit (and vice-versa), but... Read...
