Handing a victory to T-Mobile US and smaller carriers, the FCC agreed to provide guidance on what exactly constitutes a "commercially reasonable" data roaming agreement. The move represents a blow to AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless, which had urged against such action.
AT&T has named Atlanta as the newest city that will be getting its fiber-to-the-business (FTTB) service as part of the fiber-ready building program under its Project VIP initiative.
After driving Aereo into bankruptcy, the major broadcast networks have asked a judge to block any asset sale that would allow the shuttered streaming media company to reinvent itself as a cloud-based DVR service.
Service providers may be hot on the trail of delivering 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) services, but today's reality is that most consumers will not consume nearly that amount of bandwidth, nor are they universally aware that such services exist.
Continuing to implement common-sense customer service protocols under new customer service czar Charlie Herrin, Comcast is now letting its Xfinity customers schedule a specific time for a rep to call them instead of waiting on hold.
Frontier Communications has become the latest service provider to gain the Metro Ethernet Forum's Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) certification for its Ethernet solutions portfolio.
U.S. Cellular is jumping into the digital home automation and security market, presenting a challenge to AT&T Mobility, which has largely had the market to itself among wireless carriers via its Digital Life unit.
TDS Telecom has set an aggressive plan to expand its fiber network with plans to lay 800-900 miles of cable in 2015, a build that will support its ongoing deployment of 1 Gbps capable fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) services.
So much for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications--that part of the wireless industry that used to get knocked for its low average revenue per unit (ARPU) tendencies. Now it's the Internet of Things (IoT), a colossal category that not only includes M2M but also every other kind of thing imaginable, from toothbrushes to cars, and it promises to brings lots of revenues.
AT&T may have created a lot of buzz with its 1 Gbps deployments in Austin, Texas, and Charlotte, N.C., but the launch of its 75 Mbps U-verse tier illustrates that it's just as motivated to expand its existing fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) service base.
