It appears that about a week ago, subscribers of Verizon Wireless who are based in rural locations had received notifications that the Big Red would be ending their line of service as of October 17th. The reason given by the carrier was that these customers were said to be consuming a significant amount of data while roaming off Verizon’s network.
The preorder period for Apple’s iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices, as well as its Apple Watch Series 3, has officially started. Not surprisingly, it appears that the demand is comfortably outpacing the supply.

Okay, here we go again. In its latest study, Ookla reports that among the top four major wireless carriers operating in the United States, T-Mobile has the fastest wireless network during the first six months of this year. The results of Ookla’s new study also show that network connection speeds have indeed been impacted by the introduction of unlimited data offerings in the last few months.
Basically every Android mobile user today already knows that updating their devices to the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system will take some time, and part of the reason is that wireless carriers always have to follow their own respective sets of protocols before deploying a new version of Android to each handset connected to their networks.
The biggest mobile operator in the United States is no exception to this, and it is almost automatic for subscribers of Verizon Wireless to expect to wait for several weeks before they can get their Android powered smartphones and tablet devices updated to the latest version of the world’s most widely used mobile OS.
According to Randall Hounsell, the vice president of Product and Marketing at Xfinity Mobile, Comcast’s wireless service is planning to debut a handset trade in program, as well as a bring your own device (BYOD) deal later this year.

Now that Samsung has formally unveiled the newest addition to its Galaxy Note lineup of phablets, the next logical step (after poring through the device’s specifications and features) for any interested consumer is to find out what deals the country’s biggest wireless carriers are offering for the Galaxy Note 8. So here goes.
Verizon Wireless has apparently decided to revamp the unlimited data offering it debuted back in February early this year. The Big Red is now dividing the offering into a trio of tiers and is now also throttling video transmission speeds.
More than four months after it officially introduced its wireless service offering, Xfinity Mobile, Comcast has announced that it has successfully finished rolling out the service across all of its existing markets.

ROK Mobile has decided to overhaul its wireless plans, and customers will be delighted to know that the mobile virtual network operator (it leases network capacity from major US carriers Verizon Wireless and Sprint) now offers unlimited 4G LTE data for just $45 a month. For good measure, that $45 a month plan also comes with unlimited voice calls and text messaging, as well as 24 hours and seven days a week roadside assistance and mobile optimized data.
