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.

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.

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.
