US carriers want to handle your two-factor authentication

US carriers want to handle your two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication or 2FA is definitely a lot better than a naked password, but not all 2FA methods are created equal. SMS, which is actually the default many 2FA systems use, has been criticized for being more of a liability than a security option. Now the four major US carriers, often viciously competing with other, are now working together to develop a 2FA platform that will rely on your phone, phone number, and other factors, so that you will rely on them rather than third-party apps for your 2FA needs.

AT&T 5G rollout starts in these three cities

5G, the next step after 4G, is also the communications industry’s next big push, whether you’re ready or not. And most are probably not. Unless you’re a chipset maker like Qualcomm or a network carrier like Verizon and AT&T.

T-Mobile USA appears to have dominated the latest batch of mobile data tests from the folks at OpenSignal, beating out bigger names like Verizon and AT&T in the process. How could this have happened, and at what point did T-Mobile begin delivering more reliable and speedier mobile data than their competitors? If T-Mobile's service is so good, why don't they have more customers than their competitors? Is it the advertising, maybe the phones they've got available - or is it something more subtle, like the shade of pink they're using?

AT&T 5G is finally bringing super-fast speeds in 2018

Though it's probably going to be quite some time before we see 5G networks that are as easily accessible as today's 4G LTE networks, AT&T is ready to get the ball moving. The company today announced its plans to begin rolling out mobile 5G by the end of this year. We have the 3GPP's recent completion of some 5G new radio standards to thank for this move, which were defined back at the end of December.

AT&T Huawei Mate 10 launch tipped for February 2018

Huawei is reportedly just weeks away from its first official US carrier deal, with the AT&T Huawei Mate 10 said to be hitting store shelves in February 2018. Though the phone-maker has become one of the largest in the world, it has done so with minimal brand-recognition in the US. That will be Huawei's big challenge for the new year.
