Yesterday we reported that AT&T was currently looking to buy up spectum for their 4G LTE networks.

T-Mobile to Consider Sale of Non-Core Assets, Partnerships with Other Carriers

A bigger company like T-Mobile isn't the sort of place you expect to have a rummage sale, is it?

Churn rate is the rate at which customers move in and out of mobile providers like they were making butter out of milk... or is it milk out of butter?

Android the Up-coming Enterprise

Android-based handsets and tablets are here to stay. With Verizon's large-scale launch of its data-oriented high-speed LTE 4G network, in 38 mobile markets across the U.S, it's easy to see why Android is trying to take the wireless world by storm. Android OS and the handsets it runs on make it more appealing to both consumers and to enterprise managers. On the enterprise front, Verizon's Motorola Droid Pro is among the first Android devices to offer Cisco IPsec VPN connectivity.
