This might be good news for those who currently own an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s -- the biggest wireless carrier in America has a new limited time promotional deal that promises to give two hundred bucks for specific iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s owners who decide to port their phone numbers to the Big Red’s network.
According to the results of a recent survey conducted by Cowen and Company, industry leader Verizon Wireless remains the top mobile operator in the United States (despite some bit of slippage, more on this later) in terms of overall brand or image, while number four carrier Sprint has shown some significant improvement. Cowen conducts its survey on a quarterly basis, gathering feedback from over a thousand poll respondents across the country.
Just this week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) had taken the opportunity to announce the results of its 600 MegaHertz incentive spectrum auction. T-Mobile, Dish Network, and Comcast came out as the top bidders. But perhaps some were wondering why the biggest mobile operator in America -- Verizon Wireless -- did not buy any airwaves.
Comcast has officially unveiled its upcomingXfinity Mobile plans as well as details regarding their pricing and availability. First and foremost, the basic option will come with a price of $45 a month. It bears noting, however, that this pricing apparently will not be made available to all interested parties.
The biggest wireless carrier in America is getting ready to launch a new search app called AppFlash across its Android powered mobile devices, and the purpose of this app is to provide assistance to users in finding content across various apps. This search app has take some flak from critics who claim the app is actually a form of spyware that lets Verizon Wireless gain access to sorts of private data.
It is said that Comcast is planning to debut its Xfinity Mobile wireless brand before the end of this year. The set up is that the service will be operating on the network of industry leader Verizon Wireless. Back in 2011, the cable TV giant had inked an MVNO agreement with the major US wireless carrier, and now Comcast is now looking to execute that agreement in 2017.
Verizon Wireless has recently revealed that it is now deploying the first ever countrywide commercial 4G LTE Category M1 network across the United States. This roll out is viewed by many industry watchers as something that will have a strong impact on the wireless landscape. According to the Big Red, its 4G LTE Cat M1 will usher in a new generation of LTE chip sets that are designed for sensors working on data plans as low as $2 a month for each device, plus options made available for multiple activations and large procurements.
Comcast is apparently teaming up with Apple as it makes preparations to soon debut its mobile service. There is talk that the upcoming wireless offering will be launched under the Xfinity Mobile brand name. It turns out that Comcast’s name has been added to non-visible code that lists the carrier bundles for the iPhone. This list of carrier bundles is utilized by iPhones and even iTunes in checking if an Apple smartphone’s SIM card is supported by a service provider with whom the iPhone maker has an existing contract.
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.
