AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently signed an agreement to delay the C-band 5G rollout for another year. The two wireless networks believe this is enough time for the agency to fix altimeter issues that have hindered the two companies to roll out their C-band 5G networks in airports earlier this year.
With the new agreement in place, the FAA will follow a phased approach to retrofit radio altimeters that are most vulnerable to interference. Airlines and aircraft operators are expected to add filters or make necessary upgrades as soon as they can.
In the announcement, FAA Administrator Billy Nolen said:
Verizon has brought down the prices of its 5G Home Internet plans. With this surprise move, you can now get your hands on one of these plans for as little as $25 per month.
You can get the basic 5G Home Internet plan for only $25 per month. This will already give you 300Mbps Fios with no data caps. There are no hidden fees, annual contracts, or extra charges to get the equipment and set it up. Verizon also offers a two-year price guarantee and up to $500 early termination fee.
Last week, it was reported that Visible is rebranding itself to Visible by Verizon. The rebranding has been made official only a few days ago and the prepaid brand has some deals available for Father’s Day.
For a limited time period, the Verizon-owned prepaid brand is giving away a Bang & Olufsen speaker and a $150 gift card with the purchase of one of these phones:
As announced by The Verge, Big Red is adding 5GB of mobile hotspot data to subscribers of its 5G Start Unlimited plan. The best part about this decision is that it will come at no added cost to customers. It will also be automatically added to the accounts of customers at no extra cost starting June 16th.
Update June 16, 2022: It's official! Visible is now Visible by Verizon.
Original story follows:
It looks like Verizon Wireless is doing some rebranding for at least a couple of brands. In two separate reports, it has been reported that Big Red is changing the names of two brands it owns: Visible and Total Wireless.
Good news to all Verizon customers! Big Red now supports eSIM.
It was only a few weeks ago when Verizon revealed that its prepaid brand, Visible, has started supporting eSIM. And now, Big Red is ready to do the same.
This is a huge advantage to customers since they no longer have to wait for a physical SIM card before you can start using your device.
The announcement, made over a tweet, shares some important information. For starters, the feature is only available to those who bring their own device (BYOD). This means that eSIM is not yet available on devices bought from Verizon. And obviously, your phone must support eSIM.
This may just be the last time you’ll get to see the 512GB variant of the Google Pixel 6 Pro from Verizon’s website. As reported by PhoneArena, BIg Red has listed this device as out of stock for quite some time now. And with this recent development, it’ll come as no surprise that this particular variant has been discontinued.
The same Verizon-specific variant is also unavailable at Google’s official store too. But there is a “waitlist” for potential buyers. The publication, however, is unsure whether this will actually lead to anything.
So here’s an update on Verizon’s acquisition of Tracfone and its other brands. As revealed by BestMVNO, customers will no longer be allowed to activate Tracfone service under the networks of AT&T or T-Mobile after June 30th.
