04/06/2012, While Sprint has yet to get their own LTE network off the ground, and with AT&T rolling out LTE coverage at a rather slow pace, it certainly looks like Verizon has them beat as the carrier has recently announced a slew of new markets that will receive LTE coverage and markets that will be receiving expanded coverage. This would bring the total markets covered by Verizon to a whopping 44 […]
04/04/2012, Heads up AT&T subscribers, if you were hoping for more LTE network coverage, you’re in luck as the carrier has recently announced that come this Sunday (8th of April), the carrier will be rolling out additional LTE coverage to several new markets. This will bring the total of LTE covered markets by AT&T up to about 40. Granted this is still significantly smaller compared to Verizon who had a head […]
04/04/2012, Sprint subscribers, we know that the carrier has plans to launch its own LTE network in the near future and if you were worried about data caps or if Sprint will be abolishing its unlimited data packages, fret not as the carrier has come forward and officially confirmed that unlimited data will not be affected when their LTE network rolls out. So far the other major carriers have stopped offering […]
03/30/2012, At the moment, only AT&T and Verizon have 4G LTE coverage in the US. However both T-Mobile and Sprint have announced plans for LTE coverage of their own too, and thanks to a coverage map outed at the RCA Expo (snagged by Sascha Segan of PCMag), it looks like we now have a better idea of where to expect Sprint’s LTE network to encompass when it does roll out. The […]
03/29/2012, It seems that more countries are starting to get unhappy with Apple advertising their new iPad as being 4G capable, and adding on to that list, which includes Germany and Australia, is Sweden whereby the Swedish Consumer Agency has apparently received several complaints from customers over Apple’s new iPad and its inability to hook onto 4G LTE networks outside of North America. While there are 4G LTE networks available in […]
03/27/2012, So Apple’s latest iPad is 4G LTE capable which is great news mostly for US customers. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, 4G LTE networks are not as readily available which is why the Australian consumer watchdog, the ACCC (Australian Competition and Consumer Commission) has just announced that they will seek orders against Apple tomorrow for making misleading claims about the 4G capabilities of the their new iPad in […]
03/22/2012, With the launch of Apple’s third-generation iPad with a brand new Retina display and LTE connectivity, many had speculated and logically assumed that the next-generation iPhone would also feature LTE connectivity.

03/20/2012, If you’re in the market for a new Android smartphone, but you don’t want to break the bank, you might be interested to hear that a certain ZTE N910 has recently made a pitstop at the FCC. Hopefully this means that we will be seeing the device hit our shelves soon, but in the mean time, here’s what the FCC filing has revealed about the device.
03/20/2012, With Sprint getting ready to launch their 4G LTE network, naturally they would need a couple of LTE capable devices on hand to offer their subscribers to sweeten the deal, and if the rumors are to be believed, it seems that one of Sprint’s planned LTE devices will be none other than a Windows Phone-based handset, although at the moment the OEM is unknown, but Nokia seems to be a […]
03/19/2012, NetZero has hopped onto to the 4G bandwagon with the launch of its 4G Mobile Broadband service. Touted to be contract and commitment free, with no activation and overage charges – NetZero is even giving subscribers their first year of usage for free with the purchase of their NetZero 4G HotSpot or NetZero 4G Stick. The NetZero 4G HotSpot can support up to 8 WiFi-enabled devices, while the 4G Stick […]
03/15/2012, Despite Apple’s new iPad sporting 4G LTE connectivity, oddly enough it appears that attempting to make FaceTime video calls over a faster LTE connection is still not allowed. It seems that when attempting to make a FaceTime call over a LTE connection, an error message pops up stating that FaceTime has failed, prompting the user to connect to a WiFi network to continue. Undoubtedly this is a move by carriers […]
03/14/2012, It looks like Verizon will be taking the rollout of 4G LTE very seriously in 2012 as the carrier has revealed their plans to double their coverage to 400 markets by the end of the year, and at the same time push hard for LTE adoption by only issuing 4G LTE capable devices. This was revealed by the carrier’s CTO, David Small, who also mentioned that come 2013, the only […]
02/29/2012, We know that Sprint has plans to launch an LTE network of their own, which would make them the third major carrier out of the four to finally offer 4G LTE connectivity, but what’s the point in having an LTE network if you do not offer your customers compatible phones, right? Well if you’re a Sprint subscriber looking forward to getting your hands on Sprint’s first LTE handset, the HTC […]
