AT&T To Thwart Speeds Of Excessive Data Eaters

AT&T’s unlimited data plan had been very successful, but on the other hand, it also hurt AT&T to some extent. Therefore, on release of the iPhone 4 AT&T canceled its new unlimited data plans but retained it for those who were already using unlimited plan.

Those users had been in pure bliss enjoying unlimited speeds without any contravention. But their experience is going to change on October 1st.

It’s Finally Here: Samsung Galaxy Z

Samsung has just unveiled the new Galaxy Z smartphone and it was first announced by the Swedish carrier, Three, rather than your expected Korean company. The Galaxy Z is truly a beautiful phone, rocking a 4.2″ SC-LCD screen and a rear 5MP camera that shoots 720p video.

Powered by a Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, this phone delivers 1GHz of dual-core processing on two Cortex A9 cores. The chassis measures out to 125.3mm x 66.1mm x 9.5mm and will weigh exactly 135 grams.

New Bill Requires Carriers To Give Guaranteed Min. Data Speed

A new piece of legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives would require mobile carriers to provide a ‘guaranteed minimum’ for their data speeds to their potential customers. This would give customers a better idea of what they are signing up for, especially with unlimited data plans becoming a rarity.

Currently, wireless carriers provide a maximum speed which leaves many customers to assume that if they sign up with the wireless carrier, they too will receive similar speeds as the maximum. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and leaves many consumers with a bitter taste in their mouth.

Sprint: AT&T Can Boost Network 6-Fold Without T-Mobile

In what seems like a last ditch effort from Sprint, the wireless carrier offered a solution to AT&T’s weak coverage through an FCC filing. Sprint claims that AT&T could increase its network capacity by 600% by year 2015 simply by making better use of the network resources it has.

Sprint allocates a 250% improvement from AT&T’s unused spectrum for 4G, while introducing a mixed-size network with both large and small cells could boost the network by an additional 300%.

Verizon Cancels ‘Unlimited Data’ Plan

Verizon Wireless will join AT&T and T-Mobile, starting next month, by eliminating ‘unlimited data’ plans for mobile phones. Users will have to fork over additional money for fees in excess of their monthly allotment of media and web content.

With the huge influx of tablet PCs and wireless carriers getting stingier by the day, who knows what kind of an effect we will see on tablet PC sales. Will people mainly buy tablets to use on their own WiFi networks?
