Verizon Wireless has taken top honors in a recent American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) survey dealing with wireless service. This survey took a look at the big four carriers, which includes Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T. In addition to overall customer satisfaction in terms of the carriers, the survey took a look at items such as the manufacturers behind the devices.
updates coming from the wireless carriers.
GALAXY S 4 will be widely available shortly across the U.S. with 7 carriers all on board to release the device. When can you get the GALAXY S 4? All 7 carriers are launching between April and the end of May, and it looks like we should start seeing the devices hit the street in a matter of weeks from folks like AT&T and T-Mobile.
T-Mobile recently had their UNcarrier event which saw a shift from the priority being on two-year agreements to a new system where the customer would simply pay a small downpayment at the time of purchase and then make payments on the handset they choose. Of course, the option to pay for the device in full up front is also available for the customer. The key here though, T-Mobile does not have the same two-year agreement system anymore and it looks like other carriers are watching closely.
Verizon buying out Vodafone's share of Verizon Wireless, however as of today it looks like the Vodafone related rumors have taken another turn. This latest rumor has Verizon partnering up with AT&T in an effort to make a bid for Vodafone. The details are coming by way of the Financial Times’ Alphaville blog who have the price at $245 billion.
Samsung event and the wording from the press release, we already knew that the GALAXY S 4 would be available with a wide variety of carriers in the US market. In fact, Samsung noted that the GALAXY S 4 would be available with AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, US Cellular, Cricket and others from the second quarter.
T-Mobile and MetroPCS. This news comes in follow-up to the thumbs up that we recently saw coming from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and ahead of the shareholder vote. MetroPCS has a shareholder meeting schooled for April 12 and have already pushed for approval noting that if the stockholders were to vote against, they could make “no assurance that MetroPCS will be able to deliver the same or better stockholder value.”
AT&T throwing a few hard left hooks and punches to T-Mobile. It wasn't very long ago that these two nationwide carriers were being all friendly, as they tried to get a deal done and merge. Sadly now that the merger won't ever be happening AT&T is looking for a fight and has something to prove.
