The FCC has granted Verizon a temporary waiver of the commission's requirements to support text telephony (TTY) technology, similar to the one rival AT&T obtained in October.
Verizon maintains that it won't build out FiOS to any new communities, but Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto says the telco has not met the goals of the agreement it signed with the city six years ago.
AT&T is starting to see a trend in its machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) business-- one where enterprises are looking not for a Wi-Fi first service but cellular first.
As the third-quarter earnings season draws to a close, FierceWireless is taking a look at how the top eight wireless operators performed.
While the World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15) is underway in Geneva this month, it's paramount that the world's spectrum leaders agree on some common spectrum allocated for 5G. In the meantime, it's worth noting the status of 5G here in the U.S.
As Frontier Communications nears the completion of its acquisition of Verizon's wireline properties in California, Florida and Texas, the service provider has pledged to keep pricing consistent with what customers in those markets are currently paying.
T-Mobile threw down a gauntlet in front of other wireless carriers, announcing at its Uncarrier X event in Los Angeles that it will launch Binge On, a new mobile OTT streaming service that features content from 24 services including Netflix, Sling TV, Hulu, Crackle, WatchESPN and more.
Verizon may not be interested in bringing FTTH services to more areas, but in the markets that are lucky enough to have it the service provider won't have to allocate more capital to connect customers that lie within the path of the fiber network.
Dish Network CEO Charlie Ergen said that wireless carriers would "strategically commit malpractice" if they did not take a look at Dish's vast spectrum trove and try to do something with it. However, Ergen also indicated that Dish likely will not strike any kind of deal related to its airwaves before the start of next year's incentive auction of 600 MHz broadcast TV spectrum, in which Dish might take part.
Frontier Communications took another step forward in its pending acquisition of Verizon's wireline assets in California, Florida and Texas as an administrative judge with the California Public Utilities Commission issued a favorable Proposed Decision (PD) suggesting the deal be approved.
