AT&T has recently revealed that it is planning to roll out its 5G Evolution in certain locations within the city of Minneapolis in the next few months. The second biggest mobile operator in the United States is specifically looking to deploy 256 QAM, 4 X 4 MIMO (multiple input, multiple output), and 3 way carrier aggregation, especially in areas near the US Bank Stadium, the venue for the 52nd Super Bowl, which will be happening less than three months from now.
The biggest wireless carrier in the United States is teaming up with a couple of tech giants in order to conduct 5G trials during the upcoming Indianapolis 500, which happens this weekend. Indeed, Verizon Wireless, as well as Ericsson and Intel, are looking to demo pre-standardized 5G by way of a 5G powered connected home set up near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
This should be good news to fans of America’s favorite sports -- this coming April 4th, Tuesday, T-Mobile is promising to give a free year’s subscription of MLB.TV baseball streaming to all its subscribers, including current or new customers on both prepaid and postpaid plans. This is part of the major US wireless carrier’s T-Mobile Tuesdays program, which aims to launch promos and special giveaways for its customers.
T-Mobile has apparently decided to increase the monthly data cap on its unlimited plan by a couple of extra gigabytes. Thus, the 28 gigabyte data allotment each month has now been bumped to 30 gigabytes. According to TmoNews, the wireless carrier made the change in the data cap quietly just this week.
Next month, the top two football teams in the United States will be competing against each other at the NRG Stadium in the city of Houston in Texas for this year’s Super Bowl. Such a massive sports event will be expected to draw crowds from across the country, with every fan sure to be talking about it through voice calls, text messaging, and data (via social media). Major US wireless carrier Sprint is ready to take on that amount of data, and has gamely made an effort to set up new network infrastructure as well as continuing to improve its network capacity.
According to Boingo Wireless, it has recently forged a Wi-Fi offloading contract with a big American mobile operator in order to provide Wi-Fi service in one major sports arena. Despite this a momentous agreement for Boingo, the company has decided not to reveal the identity of the wireless carrier nor the exact location of the said sports stadium.
As explained by David Hagan, the chief executive officer of Boingo Wireless, what the company intends to do is partition off part of the Wi-Fi service at the sports stadium. Hagan also stated that the Wi-Fi offloading agreement is more of a specific trial run conducted in a big sports arena in order to determine the exact volume of network traffic that needs to be handled and how to go about managing that amount of usage.
For any sport fan, playing daily fantasy sports games does make their favorite sport a little more fun and exciting. But fantasy sports games are not always ideal when you are bent on watching just one sports team compete. Indeed, things get a bit tricky when the players you have picked from different teams are all playing their respective games live on different channels for instance.
We are witnessing more and more instances of live sporting events getting married with virtual reality. For instance, NextVR has already partnered with Fox Sports in making a soccer game, a title bout, a college basketball league, the US Open golf tournament, and the Daytona 500 available for viewing on VR. To NextVR’s credit, it has not stopped there -- it has also teamed up with the NBA League Pass in showing one contest from the 2016-2017 season every week in VR. On top of all that, NextVR also turned its attention to the National Football League by starting to bring post game highlights of selected matches in VR.
The Big Red has just unveiled a new service that should delight sports fans who love to watch their favorite sports via their mobile devices.
