AT&T’s Project AirGig aims to deliver broadband anywhere there are power lines

AT&T’s Project AirGig aims to deliver broadband anywhere there are power lines

In many rural parts of the world, there are few, if any, choices when it comes to broadband providers. The issue for many broadband firms is that the layout to run the needed cabling to serve rural communities can't always be offset by the number of subscribers that the company might gain. AT&T has a new system that it is in the process of developing that could change this and bring broadband to any location that is served by power lines called AirGig.

Sioeye Iris4G LTE action camera adds T-Mobile support

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

No matter how strong your 4G LTE connection is, there will come a time, or a place, where the signal degrades to near uselessness. Sometimes, those times and places are found inside our very own homes, where structures and materials hinder the spread of cellular signals throughout the building. Making sure its customers won't be bereft of that much needed Internet connection, Verizon has teamed up again with Samsung to launch a 4G LTE Network Extender that practically gives homes and offices a mini LTE tower of their own.

The Galaxy S7 Active’s one key feature (it’s not just rugged)

The Galaxy S7 Active’s one key feature (it’s not just rugged)

Today we're having a peek at the differences between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. Spoiler alert - there aren't many of them. The big differences lie in the look of the casing for the devices, the ruggedness therein, and the battery. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Active model has a battery that's so extremely large, it'd be difficult to use it all up in a single day. Really difficult. Tablet battery-sized difficult.

Ericsson’s Apple suit ends in license deal

Ericsson’s Apple suit ends in license deal

Shares have risen significantly this morning after Ericsson announced that they'd signed a patent licensing deal with Apple. This comes after nearly a year of patent litigation that had Ericsson accusing patent infringement on Apple, originally threatening to file a collection of patent lawsuits and seek to block sales of Apple products in the United States. It does not appear that Ericsson's request for blocking sales in the US via the US International Trade Commission did not take hold - Apple's deal with the company ends mutual suits that'd been in play since January of this year.

T-Mobile wants you to host an LTE tower for everyone in your area

T-Mobile wants you to host an LTE tower for everyone in your area

The folks at T-Mobile have announced a 4G LTE CellSpot, a device you'll put in your living room to amp up your LTE coverage. At first this might seem like a pretty radical idea - bringing a piece of equipment into your home to ramp up your 4G LTE coverage at no additional cost to you. Pretty neat, yes? But these "CellSpot" devices aren't just for you. They provide additional coverage to every T-Mobile user within range, as well.

You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

This week LG revealed the Watch Urbane 2, a smartwatch with the ability to connect to a 4G LTE data network. This part of the watch is a gimmick. If that's what it takes to get you to purchase a watch that is, by all means, one of the nicest smartwatches on the market, then so be it. But you don't actually need it. Using Android Wear as Google intends it, (read: without rooting and adding odd apps not approved by Google Play), there's no real reason for you to be using LTE-speed data.

E FUN’s new Nextbook Ares tablets tout Verizon 4G LTE

We are all growing more connected these days, so much that even users of budget tablets sometimes expect Internet connectivity anywhere they go.

Verizon 5G: What is it and why does it matter?

Verizon 5G: What is it and why does it matter?

The first company to bring 4G LTE to the United States - Verizon - is now testing 5G. This is a name for a faster sort of mobile internet. That's wireless internet that brings data to your smartphone. What's the difference between 4G and 5G? Speed, mostly. Verizon suggests that though "by nearly all accounts, 5G technology should be introduced in the U.S. sometime after 2020," they'll be starting field technology trials next year. The mobile internet will get faster, and this new wave of faster internet will be brought to market faster than expected thanks to Verizon.

Snapdragon 412, 212 pushes the low-end even higher

Snapdragon 412, 212 pushes the low-end even higher

Qualcomm has received a lot of flak for the Snapdragon 810 and its overheating infamy. But while that is indeed big news, it is so far the only huge blot in the company's track record. Qualcomm's Snapdragons continue to power a whole range of devices, from the high-end flagships to the low-end budget phones. And with the new Snapdragon 412 and 212 chips, Qualcomm is again trying to push the boundaries of low tier devices, further eating into the once untouchable market dominated by MediaTek.
