T-Mobile closes deal for 700MHz spectrum, reiterates commitment to LTE rollout

T-Mobile has finally closed a deal to acquire highly-valuable 700MHz spectrum from Verizon, enabling the next wave of network upgrades for the carrier. In the wireless world not all spectrum is created equal, with lower frequencies being more desirable because they travel further distances and better penetrate buildings.

AT&T adds international LTE roaming in Spain, France, Japan, Australia, Singapore, and 8 other countries

Late last year saw AT&T adding international LTE roaming in Canada and the UK, and today they're adding 13 more nations to the list. If the added services are treated in the same way as AT&T's deals with EE in the UK and Rogers in Canada, the rates charged for the "Data Global" add-ons won't change with the addition of LTE services, though AT&T did not say if that would be...

EE launches the first 4G LTE network in the UK today - what does this mean for us BlackBerry users?

Today in the UK EE have rolled out the first 4G LTE network. Yes, we have been a bit slow here in good old Blighty. However, what does this mean for us BlackBerry users? Well, at the moment it doesn't affect us at all as none of the Blackberry 7 range are LTE compatible, but come the New Year and we will get a slice of the pie. As we all know, Blackberry 10 will launch in Q1 2013 and...
