In the run up to the holidays, it seems AT&T is wasting no time expanding its 4G LTE coverage -- we've counted at least thirteen in the past few weeks. Today brings the news that the carrier's LTE network has just been lit up in four new cities:
Green Bay, Wis.
In addition, Phoenix and Los Angeles are seeing...
Verizon has announced that it will be flipping on its 4G LTE service in more cities on December 20th.
Here is the list that will accompany those that were announced earlier this month:
Casa Grande, Arizona
Ruidoso, New Mexico
Mason City, Iowa
Charles City, Iowa
Hastings and Kearney,...
The ever developing LTE saga in the UK is potentially about to get another chapter. Following a 2010 Government spending review, the Ministry of Defence was forced to sell off at least 500MHz of public spectrum. In summer of 2014 200MHz will be auctioned off, and will be expected to raise around £1 billion. Better news for mobile users is that the spectrum will give the UK mobile operators more...
British 4G mobile network EE has announced that it'll branch out from phones, iPads and Mifis, and begin offering contract-subsidized Android tablets directly for sale. The first two Android tablets to be sold on EE will be the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE and Google Nexus 7, the latter being offered with a 4G Mifi. All of EE's tablet contracts run for 24 months.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE should...
If you'd like some 4G LTE with your Android-powered smart camera, you'll be pleased to hear that Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy Camera is now on sale, with support for Big Red's 4G service. Aside from the radio switch-up, the Verizon Galaxy Camera is more or less the same as its international cousin. It's got a 16MP sensor and a 23mm lens with 21X optical zoom, and it's powered by a...
It's hard to find cities that don't have Verizon LTE coverage at this point, but they're still rolling it out. Big red is taking its new high-speed network to several new cities and towns, all expecting to launch on December 20th:
Lamar And LaJunta, Colorado
Price And Richfield, Utah
Jackson Hole, Teton Village, Kemmerer And Pinedale, Wyoming
Port Angeles, Port Townsend And Sequim...
We've seen quite a few new AT&T LTE markets launch in recent weeks, and this morning the carrier has announced six new additions to its 4G LTE network --
If you're seeing AT&T LTE light up in your neighborhood for the first time this morning, be sure to share your thoughts in the comments...
EE, the UK's first and currently only 4G LTE network provider, has announced that it'll bring its 4G services to some 17 new British towns and cities by March 2013. The carrier also revealed that with upcoming network switch-ons in Belfast, Hull, Maidenhead and Slough, in addition to recent LTE light-ups in Derby, Newcastle and Nottingham, will bring its total markets to 18 before the end of...
If you have any business reading this website, chances are you’ve at least heard of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Samsung’s curvaceous, nature-inspired flagship smartphone has sold over 30 million units worldwide, and is our top recommendation for buyers in the U.S. and international markets.
But when the S3 was released internationally this spring, it lacked 4G LTE network connectivity. That wasn’t a...
Reports are indicating that Sprint will finally buy out the remaining 49-percent of Clearwire that it doesn't already own. Sprint finally took a controlling stake in Clearwire back in October, which gave the number 3 carrier in the U.S. some more options when it came to deploying its LTE network. Buying the rest of Clearwire would once and for all end the uneasy partnership between the companies...

We've seen dual display devices before, but never one like this. The Russian broadband service provider Yota has engineered their own Android phone, with big specs, and a full sized e-ink display on the back. If you're thinking that the name sounds familiar, Yota also happens to be the company that released the world's first Wimax 4G cellular network, and is a leader in 4G LTE technology.
Dish has been battling with the FCC and other carriers over the possibility of using its current satellite spectrum holdings for a terrestrial cellular network. The TV operator turned carrier has finally got full approval by the FCC to do just that today, following months of negotiation. Dish holds a good portion of spectrum -- about 40MHz -- in the AWS-4 band, which isn't exactly the "prime...
Originally announced in Southeast Asia in September, the HTC One SV is now headed to Europe -- specifically the UK, where it'll launch on EE, the country's first 4G LTE carrier. An unassuming device with widely curved sides, the One SV is HTC's mid-range LTE offering for markets outside the U.S.
Spec-wise, we're looking at a handset that sits somewhere near the One S in HTC's Android line-up It'...
HTC’s fourth-quarter refresh of the One X is good, but is it good enough to keep you from waiting for the next tier of hardware?
When first holding an HTC One X+ (or any One device, for that matter) in your hand, it's hard to believe that the company has had such abysmal sales figures the past several quaters. It arguably has one of the best screens on the market, paired with an upgraded...
AT&T's march toward a network full of 4G LTE data continues, with three four new cities announced (so far) this morning. They are:
Grand Rapids, Mich.
So, that's three more to go along with the dozens we've seen go live in the last few months. If you're still waiting, hang in there. The ball's a-rollin'. And if you've got...
We saw a Samsung Galaxy Camera go through the FCC just a week ago with Verizon LTE on board, and now a Samsung product page has confirmed the device. The spec page only lists 700MHz as a supported frequency, as well as only listing LTE connectivity. If this device really does only have LTE and no fallback to 3G, it shows Verizon must be pretty confident about its nationwide network rollout. It...
As part of an investment meeting, Deutsche Telekom announced today that it plans to make some major investments in the network infrastructure of its subsidiary, T-Mobile USA. First and foremost is a $4.7 billion investment in the rollout of LTE for the carrier, all taking place within 2013. As the last major carrier to start an LTE rollout, it will need all the investment it can get to catch up...
Samsung has been hard at work preparing Android 4.1.2 updates for a number of its Galaxy smartphones, and it seems the first device to get the upgrade will be the international 4G LTE version of the Galaxy Note 2 (GT-N7105). That's the version that supports LTE on Euro-friendly 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz bands, not to be confused with the 3G/HSPA-only version we reviewed back in October.
AT&T this morning announced it's turned on 4G LTE data in three new cities. They are: Albuquerque, N.M., Reading, Penn., and Salt Lake City. We've seen a couple dozen new areas go live in the past few weeks. AT&T previously announced that it plans to spend $14 billion on its network over the next three years.
Samsung's Galaxy Camera is the first wirelessly-connected, Android-powered camera to hit the mainstream. But so far it's been limited to 21Mbps HSPA+ "4G" speeds in all territories, even the U.S., where it's sold through AT&T.
That may be about to change if we're to believe a recent FCC filing, which shows a new Galaxy Camera model going by the name EK-GC120, rocking support for Big Red's...
