Verizon Wireless has unveiled a new initiative called the Airborne LTE Operations (ALO), and among other things, it is looking to make full use of drones that are connected to the Big Red’s LTE network in giving assistance to first responders in times of emergencies and natural calamities. With the launch of this initiative, the Big Red is also hoping to encourage developers to build mobile apps for ALO.
The last few years have more and more mobile virtual network operators cropping up in the United States wireless market, making the MVNO industry more competitive than it has ever been. The latest to join in on the fun is Mango Mobile. The company had actually launched last month rather quietly so it is pretty understandable that most mobile users still don’t know who this new player is and what it offers.
Verizon Wireless has officially launched the LG K4 LTE, a smartphone that is heavy on features (as can be expected from a handset belonging to LG’s K series of devices) while focusing on bringing a user friendly experience to mobile users.
Each of the Big Four wireless carriers in the United States, namely Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, like to claim at some point that they provide either the best coverage, the most reliable connection, or the fastest speed.
It appears that T-Mobile wants its mobile users to further boost their cellular coverage, especially in indoor settings such as at home or in the office. The third biggest wireless carrier in the United States announced just recently that it will soon be offering the T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot, a low power wireless radio device that is capable of supplying 3G and 4G cellular coverage in indoor locations.
T-Mobile may still only be the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States, but it is gaining on industry leaders Verizon Wireless and AT&T in terms of its 4G LTE coverage. Just this week, top executives of T-Mobile stated that the company’s 4G LTE service has now been made available to over 300 million mobile users all over the US. That number is around the same coverage as Verizon’s and AT&T’s high speed networks.
When it comes to high speed wireless technology LTE, more commonly known as 4G, the United States ranks in 14th place. That is, among the slowest -- yikes. As for the country with the fastest 4G LTE connection, in terms of both connection speed and quality of coverage, the honor goes to South Korea. This is, of course, according to a report published by OpenSignal, a mobile app that maps out mobile coverage all over the world.
