In spring of this year, Verizon Wireless is planning to lock mobile devices as a form of protective measure against phone theft. According to a report recently published by CNET, the biggest mobile operator in the United States had started pushing unlocked handsets when it began offering LTE services. This was partly due to the fact that the 700 MegaHertz spectrum that the Big Red had initially utilized for its LTE offerings came with open access stipulations from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
Based on the latest report released by RootMetrics, the biggest mobile operator in the United States has retained its title of having the best network in the country. Not only that, Verizon Wireless has also managed to set a new record by winning the best network honor for a nine straight times, which no other carrier has accomplished.
Boy, it appears that Huawei just can not catch a break in America. According to a report recently published by Bloomberg, it turns out that Verizon Wireless was also under pressure by the United States government to abandon its plan of selling Huawei branded mobile devices to American consumers. On top of that, the US government is also strongly urging the Big Red to terminate any existing partnership with the Chinese tech giant with regards to standards for a 5G service offering.
Beginning on Thursday, January 25th, the number one mobile operator in America will be allowing subscribers of its Go Unlimited plans to make phone calls as well as send text messages to Canada and Mexico, plus be able to enjoy access to data when traveling to those two countries.
Just over a week into the new year, T-Mobile is once again back to announcing aggressive promotional deals for mobile users. This time around, the wireless carrier is deciding to introduce three new special offers. The first one is a buy one get one deal on a dozen smartphone models from brands such as Samsung and LG (just to name a couple) for customers who choose to switch from a rival network. The second deal promises $150 back on a Samsung or LG device after rebate.
National carriers Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile shared some 5G related news this week, as they both inch closer to commercially debuting their respective 5G service offerings before the end of the decade.
Huawei and Xiaomi are two of the largest phone makers in China (and among the top five across the globe), but for all their success in their native homeland, penetrating the United States mobile market remains a challenge. But as recently reported by Bloomberg, both companies apparently have big plans for next year.
