Verizon Wireless launched a new plan for individual subscribers that offers unlimited voice, texting and 2 GB of data for $60 per month. The new plan is $30 per month cheaper than a comparable offering on Verizon's More Everything shared data plans.
T-Mobile US said it may throttle the data speeds of its subscribers with unlimited data plans who engage in peer-to-peer file sharing or use their phones as modems to download continuous and automatic data feeds.
AT&T expects to begin deploying LTE Broadcast technology, also known as LTE Multicast, sometime in 2015, according to a top AT&T executive.
AT&T Mobility's Voice over LTE-powered HD Voice solution provides much better call quality than traditional circuit-switched fallback voice or voice service from an over-the-top application, according to a new research report.
T-Mobile US thinks the FCC's decision to reserve up to 30 MHz of spectrum for smaller carriers in next year's incentive auction of 600 MHz broadcast TV spectrum is not sufficient. The carrier wants the FCC to set aside at least half of all of the spectrum that is cleared in a given market for smaller carriers, and argues setting aside just 30 MHz of the low-band airwaves for smaller carriers is "insufficient to protect competition or meaningfully advance the stated goal of ensuring four robustly competitive nationwide carriers."
Verizon Wireless intends to launch Voice over LTE service in the fourth quarter of this year, and the carrier plans to use the technology to introduce new, high-definition telepresence services, according to Verizon Communications CFO Fran Shammo.
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said that just because other wireless carriers also throttle customers' data speeds does not mean that Verizon Wireless is in the clear in doing so for some of its customers on legacy unlimited data plans. He said he is concerned that such plans have commercial motives and indicated that the FCC has asked all Tier 1 carriers about their throttling practices.
Verizon Wireless said it has stored network assets for emergency preparedness disaster recovery (EPDR) within the Kansas/Missouri region 60 feet underground into a 20,000-square-foot cave.

There continues to be speculation about whether Dish Network will angle to buy T-Mobile US or partner with Sprint to make use of its more than 50 MHz of wireless spectrum. However, according to a new research note from New Street Research analyst Jonathan Chaplin, Dish's best path forward could be to sell its spectrum to either Verizon Wireless or AT&T and still keep its satellite TV business.
