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.

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?

Verizon On The Horizon: 19 More Cities Get LTE

Verizon Wireless has just announced that it will be adding 19 more cities to its blazing fast, LTE wireless network. The rollout begins on Thursday and will bring happiness to many Verizon Wireless customers looking to get faster data times with their usage.

In addition to the increased coverage, previously covered cities such as San Francisco and Detroit will get expanded coverage. This means that if you live in the outskirts of San Francisco and were just out of reach of LTE before, you should be golden soon.

Verizon Announces 75MB Data Plan For $10/Month

Verizon has announced a new value pack, offering 75MB of data for only $10 a month. Before you go crazy on the price, realize that this deal was meant for basic phones, knowing that 75MB isn’t a whole lot of data. 75MB will allow you to send a few e-mails each day without going over, but won’t let you listen to Pandora (an online radio service).

Not only does the $10 offer you 75MB data, but it also provides monthly subscriptions to Mobile email, VZ Navigator, Verizon Wireless’ audible GPS navigation, and Ringback Tones.

T-Mobile Releases Rocket 3.0 Modem Stick

T-Mobile revealed today the release date and pricing for the first HSPA+ 42Mbps modem along with an announcement that the network is doubling the speed of its current 4G network across 50 markets in the United States.

I am glad to see that while AT&T seeks to get the T-Mobile acquisition approved, T-Mobile continues business as usual (which is smart, in case the deal doesn’t go through, it wouldn’t be good for T-Mobile to stand as a wallflower).

Dell Streak Pro On Its Way!

Google announced Android 3.1 at Google I/O yesterday. The new Android will offer fixes such as native USB hosting, speed improvements, and is expected to come out on tablets in the near future.
