It is the Motorola fans' turn to get excited. Motorola has finally announced the preorder details for its Moto X smartphone, the company's flagship device that is meant to contend with Apple's iPhone 6 and Samsung's Galaxy S5.
Having already initiated its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) roll-out, AT&T is now planning to offer Wi-Fi calling by 2015.
The carrier has always had embraced Wi-Fi and other closely related technologies. As a matter of fact, AT&T has managed to partner with other business entities over the years in order to provide public Wi-Fi areas for its customers.
AT&T recently announced that their LTE network is now covering more than 300 million people in the United States. That figure is about 95% of the whole population of the country.
AT&T did not state for certain whether they are stopping their 4G rollout. But by hitting 300 million, the carrier has no doubt accomplished something significant -- AT&T has covered more people than Verizon did when it initiated its LTE rollout. Back in June of 2013, it was reported that Verizon had reached 298 million people when it completed its 4G network rollout.
In January of this year, AT&T ran a promo that gives customers a $100.00 bill credit for every new line of service that they activated through AT&T Next. The special offer ran until the end of March this year.
A top AT&T executive recently revealed that the mobile telecom operator is planning to deploy LTE Broadcast technology (aka LTE Multicast) starting next year. Based on Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS), LTE Multicast is a technology that allows a certain type of content to be sent simultaneously to a subscriber group. It is generally considered a more efficient way of broadcasting compared to having the same content delivered to each individual user upon request.
Beginning December 8th 2013, AT&T will give existing wireless consumers and business customers the opportunity to save money every month without giving up the nation's fastest 4G LTE network. These new Mobile Share Value Plans will give customers unlimited talk and text with 300mb of data for only $45 per month for the first phone number on the plan. If 300MB of data isn't enough for you, and I bet it's not, you can select a larger "bucket" of data to start with. (See data options below)
