EE 4G network speed and capacity will soon be doubled

EE, who happen to be the first (and only) carrier in the UK to offer 4G have recently announced some upgrade plans. The carrier has said they plan to double the speed and capacity of their 4G network. We have yet to see a specific date as to when this will be going live, however those increased speeds should begin arriving during the summer months.

AT&T LTE expands into 14 new markets across 11 states

AT&T has announced another round of expansions in terms of their 4G LTE coverage. We saw a few announcements during the month of March and given the time of month we are currently sitting at, we suspect April will bring more of the same for the carrier. That being said, for today we have word of expansion in 14 markets which touch on parts of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Texas and Washington.

Chromebook Pixel with LTE shipping by April 8

Google announced the Chromebook Pixel back in late-February and at that time they offered details on the LTE model, however they had left the shipping timeframe sort of open. Google had said that the LTE equipped Chromebook Pixel would begin shipping in April. And well, true to that word, we now have a shipping date and it is indeed in April.

AT&T 4G LTE coverage expands in five states

AT&T has flipped the 4G LTE switch for several additional markets. This latest includes select cities in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio and Tennessee.

T-Mobile to finally launch 4G LTE network this month

After delaying its 4G LTE network month after month, T-Mobile looks like it will finally be launching its network by the end of this month. It's the last carrier to launch its LTE network, with AT&T and Verizon being miles ahead of the company. However, while Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T may already have their LTE networks up and running, T-Mobile one-ups them all by having both its HSPA+ and 4G LTE network on one chip, meaning its devices will have superior battery life compared to the LTE devices on other networks.
