When it comes to LTE, the United States has one of the slowest networks. Only outpacing the Phillipines, our LTE speeds are just plain terrible, according to Open Signal. T-Mobile, however, was found to have the quickest overall network.
HTC had hopes of getting the One updated to Kit Kat within 90 days time. This was referring to the carrier branded models in the US and Canada, but as we learned back towards the end of January -- HTC wasn't going to reach the self-imposed goal. At the time there was talk of a delay of one to two weeks and while the discussion had gone quiet, some updated details have recently been shared.
How satisfied are you with your mobile service provider? If you’re an AT&T customer, the numbers show you’re pretty happy, at least more than the competition. T-Mobile made huge improvements in customer relations, while Verizon kept on their path of excellence. Sprint customers, unfortunately, remain dissatisfied.
Branding is serious business, even if it's just a distinctive color, as T-Mobile's latest court victory shows. A federal court in Texas has ruled that Aio Wireless has infringed on the trademark magenta color that T-Mobile paints so lavishly on its properties.
Aio Wireless, which is a subsidiary of AT&T, has just announced a change in their prepaid offering. Trying to ultimately get more subscribers under AT&T's network, the carrier is now offering its plans with lower monthly fees or bigger data capacity.
AT&T is pledging $100 million to aid children in getting an education. Their donation comes in the form of broadband access to various middle-schools and other educational resources, and is meant to aid kids in learning via mobile devices. This compliments other ventures AT&T has made into funding education via technology, and could serve as an entry-level introduction to their Aspire program.
AT&T announced details surrounding the availability of the LG G Flex earlier back in January. At the time AT&T offered pricing details, and began accepting pre-orders within a few days time. Well, flash forward till the present day and the handset is now available for purchase by way of the AT&T website.
The rivalry between carriers AT&T and T-Mobile has come to another somewhat amusing turn. It seems that AT&T's promo to practically bribe T-Mobile subscribers to jump ship has suddenly and quietly ended, a fact that T-Mobile CEO John Legere couldn't resist pointing out in a tweet.
A patent filed by AT&T back in September of 2013 has been found, and it’s got some eyebrow-raising features. Recently published by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), AT&T is asking for what amounts to ‘freemium’ browsing. Issuing credits as you use data, the patent seems to coincide with other recent revelations about how AT&T envisions you using your movie device to browse.
AT&T seems to be on a slight roll in terms of new and available plans. Earlier in the week we saw a limited time promo plan arrive for new and existing customers, and as of today, the carrier has launched an updated family plan. This one is being teased as a family plan that offer the "best-ever prices."
