T-Mobile claims to be offering blazing-fast download speeds on its supercharged 4G network. UCAN decided to put its supercharged 4G network to the test in San Diego and was highly concerned with the results.
It looks like Verizon’s golden child, its new LTE network, is feeling some growing pains during its formative years. According to posts by Fierce Wireless and Engadet--and confirmed by a post on Verizon’s Twitter account--Verizon’s LTE network went down on Tuesday evening. Little information has been released as to the cause of the outage, but it could be seen as a big blow to Verizon’s growing LTE network.
Wi-Max, LTE, HSPA+. If you've not heard of these yet, you will. They are improvements over current 3G speeds and are a step forward, but they are not actually 4G. That is, they are still not the next generation speeds that are forthcoming and they are still behind the speeds of many other countries.
Wi-Max availability is growing, though it is still not available in San Diego. Does this increased availability justify Sprint’s current pricing scheme of an additional $10 per month charge just because your smartphone can connect to a Wi-Max network if you are in the right place.
Verizon and Alltel are merging, but is it good for consumers?
