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.
Verizon Wireless has recently revealed that it is planning to officially launch its first ever 5G residential broadband offering within the second half of next year. The plan is to debut its 5G service in Sacramento, the capital city of the state of California, before launching in up to four other markets in the United States.
According to a recent report published by FierceWireless, Verizon Wireless should be on track to debut its 5G broadband offering in several markets within the United States by next year. As pointed out by Nicola Palmer, the chief network officer of the mobile operator, the Big Red has been busy conducting field tests with customers (albeit of the non-paying kind) in 11 markets. Verizon is taking full advantage of 28 GigaHertz spectrum and 120+ nodes.
The two biggest wireless carriers in America are teaming up in order to enter into a joint venture with Tillman Infrastructure. The main objective of this joint venture is to set up hundreds of new cellular towers that both Verizon Wireless and AT&T can take full advantage of later on, especially once the build out is completed.
According to its official press release, US Mobile has announced that it has launched its wireless service on the biggest LTE network in the United States mobile market. The mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) also stated that it is targeting to reach 150,000 customers by the end of next year.
When Verizon Wirelessannounced that it would be splitting its unlimited plan into two back in August, many of its users grew disappointed because of the complicated effects it would produce. Since many of Verizon’s customers only wanted a way to connect to LTE at a monthly price, the move complicated things. In addition to offering two different plans, Verizon also started to limit video quality across these plans.
