Almost a decade ago, Verizon Wireless signed an agreement with the city of New York in order to set up fiber optic Internet and television service to more than three million households in the Big Apple. The Big Red was supposed to complete the fiber roll out back in 2014, but it is already 2017 and the job is still unfinished until now. Deciding it could not wait any longer, New York has filed a lawsuit against the biggest wireless carrier in the United States, citing breach of contract.
The number one mobile operator in the United States may prefer not to spill everything in regards to its 5G fixed wireless plans, but the company is dead set on debuting a commercial fixed broadband option by next year.
It might be safe to say during the first quarter of this year, the biggest wireless carrier in the United States should be able to acquire (or reacquire) subscribers through its recently launched unlimited data plan. What is less clear is whether that move should prove cost effective in the long run. And with the unlimited data wars sure to rage on in the next few months, will Verizon Wireless be able to continue to boast of its network as the critical difference in distancing itself from the rest of the competition?
Verizon Wireless has recently revealed that it is planning to begin its 5G pilot program in 11 specific markets across the United States within the first six months of the year. The 11 markets will include Ann Arbor in Michigan, Atlanta in Georgia, Bernardsville in New Jersey, Brockton in Massachusetts, Dallas in Texas, Denver in Colorado, Houston in Texas, Miami in Florida, Sacramento in California, Seattle in Washington, and Washington, DC.
For those content with only availing of a prepaid plan instead of signing up for an unlimited data option (which may end up unused anyway), they may want to check out the latest prepaid offering from Verizon Wireless. The Big Red’s 2 gigabyte 4G LTE plan already comes with unlimited domestic voice calls and text messaging, plus unlimited text messaging from the United States to over 200 countries around the world and unlimited Always-On Data (more on this later).
In what seems to be an ongoing spat between carriers Verizon Wireless and Sprint over who has the better unlimited data plan offering, Sprint just raised the bar. Earlier today, Sprint announced that they have added HD video onto their unlimited data plan offering.
Fresh from relaunching its unlimited data option, Verizon Wireless is now taking full advantage of the momentum to introduce a new trade in deal targeted to those looking to sign up for its Verizon Unlimited plan for the first time.
Quickly countering the latest announcement from Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile has revealed that it is now adding HD video to its unlimited plan. Specifically, the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States has added HD video and 10 gigabytes of high speed hotspot data to its T-Mobile One unlimited plan, which normally costs $70 per month.
