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.

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.

This 4G LTE Extender could fix your bad Verizon signal

In a world with LTE Advanced and 5G just on the horizon, you'd think we'd be beyond furiously glaring at the signal bars on our smartphones and cursing poor coverage. Sadly just because carriers may be looking to next-generation networks now, that doesn't mean you'll necessarily get a decent signal at home or in the office.

AT&T Nighthawk mobile hotspot claims up to 2x LTE speeds

AT&T has a new speedy mobile hotspot router, the AT&T Nighthawk, and while it may continue the carrier's "5G evolution" fudge, you might not mind so much when you see the speeds. The Netgear-made hotspot could deliver speeds up to twice as fast as regular LTE, AT&T claims, though there are some big provisos there too. Most importantly, it'll depend on where you are.

With the massive Equifax hack still fresh in our minds, we're now learning that a bug on T-Mobile's website made it very easy for hackers to make off with subscriber information. The information that was potentially put at risk includes email addresses, T-Mobile account numbers, and the IMSI number from customer phones. All those hackers needed to access that information was your phone number, which isn't exactly a difficult thing to find (or even stumbled upon).

The T-Mobile and Sprint merger terms are reportedly almost set

T-Mobile and Sprint's on-again, off-again merger is near to terms being agreed, sources claim, though there's still some way to go before the four major carriers become three.
