LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

The LG G6 is live and official and is definitely one of the most interesting smartphones this year. Its 18:9 screen is just begging to be tested in the real world. That said, LG has so far left out the details of when the smartphone will actually land in the real world. Unsurprisingly, major US carriers are quick to jump on board and give us at least a season. At least one carrier goes the extra mile, or even more, to bring us what is calls the world’s farthest unboxing.

Here’s how much Verizon’s offer to buy Yahoo is decreasing

After Yahoo's well-documented trouble with security breaches, we expected to see Verizon decrease its offer to buy the company's operating business. What started as a $4.8 billion offer was rumored to drop by as much as $1 billion shortly after those breaches came to light, but last week, new reports indicated that the drop would only come in at $250 million. Today, Verizon is finally breaking its silence on the matter, revealing just how much its offer with drop.

Verizon launches new 2GB prepaid plan

We’ve seen some shakeups in the wireless service market, with three of the biggest carriers rolling out new/modified unlimited plans in a sort of battle-for-the-consumer. Now Verizon has just announced a new offering for its prepaid customers: a 2GB prepaid plan priced at $40/month. That 2GB allotment is for high-speed data, after which point the speeds are throttled down to a paltry 128kbps.

Unlimited Data plans from Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: a brief review

In a matter of just a few days, we've gone from two major US carriers offering unlimited data plans to all four. After the past few years, it seems very strange to say this, but unlimited data is back. This time around, though, these plans come with a lot of caveats, and it can be hard to keep things straight between AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

After Yahoo security breaches, Verizon reportedly drops offer by $250m

We had a feeling that Yahoo's security woes might do something to the buyout offer Verizon put on the table, and today we're getting an idea of just how much of a hit Yahoo is going to take. Verizon was initially offering $4.8 billion to purchase Yahoo, but after a string of reports on Yahoo's lax security, it looks like that price is set to drop a bit.

Verizon’s Unlimited plan: Everything you need to know

In case you missed the news, Verizon has decided to bring back unlimited data plans. The largest wireless carrier in the US has likely been feeling the pressure from T-Mobile and Sprint's own unlimited plans.

Verizon resurrects “unlimited” data plan

Verizon resurrects “unlimited” data plan

The word "unlimited" no longer meant what it used to mean. At least not if you use it in the context of Internet data plans. Due to both technical and business considerations, carriers have often put caps on previously labeled "unlimited" plans, technically making them limited. Verizon, however, is unexpectedly changing courses a bit. After actually putting limits on its older unlimited plans, it is introducing a new Unlimited 4G LTE data plan in addition to its bucket-based plans. But, naturally, there are always some caveats.

Comcast’s claims of “fastest internet” draws criticism from advertising watchdog

If you happen to live in a section of the US where Comcast has set up shop, you've likely heard commercials where the company says it offers the "fastest internet in America" or the "fastest in-home Wifi." As it turns out, those claims may not be entirely truthful, according the National Advertising Review Board, an advertising watchdog that's part of the Council of Better Business Bureaus.
