Verizon plans to sell blocks of spectrum it currently holds. The airwaves are likely to have two potential suitors, AT&T and T-Mobile, according to a report quoted by the Wall Street Journal. One of those carriers may a better shot at acquiring the spectrum.
Following in the footsteps of fourth-place T-Mobile, AT&T has announced that it will increase monthly data limits and lower the price of monthly charges for customers who buy a phone without subsidies.
The Amazon Prime Air drone delivery method may be a pipe dream, but Verizons new same-day delivery option is very much a reality. Verizon Wireless has started a new program that will ensure that a phone ordered in the morning will be at the customer's doorstep that evening.
T-Mobile will be among the many retailers who will offer big Black Friday deals, and those deals will stretch into Cyber Monday. The fourth place carrier has announced that it will let customers secure a new phone with $0 down due at the time of purchase.
AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile have announced that they will cease charging subscribers for premium texting services, most of which are nothing more than spam that tricks users into paying highly monthly fees for unwanted messages.
Sprint is the third-largest carrier in the United States; however, when it comes to the satisfaction levels of those millions of subscribers, the Now Network is rated as the worst carrier in the country, according to Consumer Reports.
T-Mobile US has spent much of the $4 billion it earned from the failed sale to AT&T on network improvements and completely altering its service plans in order to attract new customers. The fourth-largest carrier in the US has announced plans to sell $1 billion of Senior Notes that it will have to repay by 2022 and an additional $1 billion to be paid in 2024. Taking on the debt will allow T-Mobile to fund investments for its network and buy more licenses from spectrum holders and government auctions without compromising "financial stability."
Anyone who can prove that he or she is a registered student can sign-up to receive a year?s worth of free service on Sprint?s network. Under the terms of the My Way Student plan, subscribers can get $840 worth of service just for being in school.
Tom Wheeler's first public actions as FCC Chairman concern a familiar topic: he wants the wireless industry to take it upon itself to make cell phone unlocking easier to do, and he's willing to regulate the industry if carriers do not voluntary change policies.
It appears that prepaid customers of MVNO's that operate through Sprint will no longer be able to activate some of the top phones on the network. Sprint has begun blacklisting phones from operating on its prepaid networks.
