GALAXY S 4 smartphone might be the popular choice at the moment, but not everyone needs the best of the best or is willing to pay top dollar for a smartphone. Samsung's king of all smartphones last year, the Galaxy S III, is back on T-Mobile shelves but upgraded to support their new 4G LTE network. The device is available today and comes in at a great price too.
4G LTE data speeds we get on our smartphones have come a long way in the short two years since LTE first hit the streets. I remember loving how fast that HTC Thunderbolt was, even though I was still in T-Mobile land. Now that most have 4G LTE including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and more, we want to see how fast yours is.
AT&T has announced the latest 4G LTE expansions. This time around we are seeing new and expanded coverage spreading across 13 states. The list includes Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Utah and Washington. Perhaps even nicer, some of these states have multiple markets seeing the new coverage.
on Wednesday the folks from Verizon Wireless pushed out a rather large update for the Samsung Galaxy S III. One that brought a host of improvements and new features. Sadly, we're also hearing this update killed or severely weakened 4G LTE for many, and data speeds have slowed way down.
recently launched with Verizon Wireless and while the handset brings LTE support out of the box, it is looking like a future update will bring additional speeds. We are talking about support for Advanced Wireless Service (AWS) which will arrive as an upgrade to the Verizon network. AWS, according to reports, should more than double the current available speeds.
C Spire Wireless has officially announced their upcoming LTE expansion, which will arrive as good news for those in select markets in Alabama and Florida. The C Spire LTE service will be rolling out for those in 15 south Alabama cities and six northwest Florida cities. The carrier has yet to announce a specific launch date for these new markets and instead have opted to give a general sounding sometime "this fall."
AT&T GoPhone users can now get access to 4G speeds. This includes AT&T's HSPA+ and LTE networks, though it is provided the user has a supported handset. For now AT&T appears to have this aimed at those who already have a capable device and simply want to avoid signing a contract on something new. These new speeds are available at this time and will be available with the $65, $50 or $25 per month plans.
Verizon has been on a roll lately regarding their updates and continued improvements to their 4G LTE network, and today we have even more good news. Aside from the odd special announcement of Viva Movil this afternoon, we're also learning Verizon Wireless will begin deploying a series of small cells throughout the US later this year. What are small cells? Read on for more details on how this will improve your connection.
