The state says that the broadband provider had failed to expand its network quickly enough as it was agreed upon for the Charter-Time Warner Cable merger.
Just like Comcast's own Xfinity Mobile, the service is offer on top of Verizon's LTE network and a mesh of free Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation.
It's in a "commercial form factor" but it has actually yet to go commercial as 5G is still building out. vivo is touting its partnership with Qualcomm.
The next tvOS update will support Dolby's spatial sound codec and, soon, Charter Spectrum channel packages through Apple TV.
The FCC and Department of Justice are set to look at a merger between the nation's fourth- and third-largest cellular networks. They'll be making demands.
The map shows off the spectrum holdings the two would have if they combined. But it doesn't reflect the towers that already exist.
The two entities met and a paper was filed. T-Mobile spent a lot of time trying to dissuade TV broadcasters from doing anything they'd consider silly.
The 600MHz auction wasn't just a boon for T-Mobile. Regional carriers and wireless operators are now working on running transmitters for the new airwaves.
Many rural stations that extend their signal through translators wouldn't have the money to realign frequencies or even shut them down without this cash.
T-Mobile is looking to quickly capitalize on wide 600 MHz spectrum it spent nearly $8 billion on fairly recently, with a big deployment planned this year.
Straight Path Communications, which owns licenses for what is viewed as fertile 5G spectrum, has had a wild ride on the stock market.
If one cable company wanted to acquire a wireless operator, say T-Mobile, it would have to get permission from the other.
T-Mobile took 45 percent of the spectrum offered at the 600MHz and it thinks it can paint a million square miles of its licensed space starting this year.
The company has particularly plow-worthy spectrum for 5G. Market speculation has talked about Verizon, perhaps, edging up against AT&T for this acquisition.
The telco announced its $1.6 billion takeover of Straight Path Communications which complements a prior acquisition of FiberTower.
AT&T has been working on a way to not have to install fiber or set up towers to support its network. The solution? Plastic antennas on power lines.
The FCC will soon publicize how much money TV broadcasters want for their precious spectrum. It's up to bidders to meet that target, or else.
An executive at the Un-carrier believes so. He's thinking that broadcasters will want to sort out their spectrum so that they can get some auction money.
Change is finally happening on the back-end of progress. As LTE keeps evolving, AT&T says it's set to let go of 2G by the end of the year.
The auction is expected to take five months, but could end up going longer if conditions deteriorate. The impacts of this auction won't be seen for years.
Deutsche Telekom is infusing some cash into its subsidiary after it supposedly put plans to shop T-Mobile out on hold.
The war for more spectrum is on. Between carriers, there’s a fight over how much of the 600MHz band each can take. Short-range, unlicensed LTE could prove a boon for venue managers who might hook an operator up with a lease. Furthermore, T-Mobile’s been fixing to take the towers to the customers themselves with its new 4G LTE CellSpots.
Now, municipalities have more leverage than ever to strike leases with the networks. It’s thanks in part to Philips and Ericsson as both team up to manufacture LED streetlights with embedded LTE antennas. Philips claims its [...]
We’ve been talking for a bit about this spectrum auction that’s going to happen early next year. Everyone’s jockeying for the best position to either sell or buy pieces of the 600MHz block — the sellers are TV stations, the buyers are mobile network operators.
Wondering where all of this is coming from? Here’s a condensed history of the matter.TV
In the US, previous to mid-2009, the overwhelming majority of TV stations broadcasted on Very High Frequencies, or VHF channels (channels 2 to 13, with a top frequency of 216MHz). Smaller [...]
