Sprint has made a lot of news recently about plans to expand its distribution and even bring phones directly to customers. It's all part of an effort to retain the company's customer base and drum up more sales in the hopes of growing net subscriber additions. However, unless Sprint clarifies its brand message and improves its 2.5 GHz LTE network, I fear it will not amount to much.

As the first-quarter earnings season draws near, one of the big questions is whether T-Mobile US will officially surpass Sprint in terms of total subscribers to become the No. 3 U.S. carrier.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) said it has halted payments for Los Angeles' LTE network for public-safety workers after regulators there voted to halt the construction of the network.
AT&T Mobility is keeping its foot on the gas when it comes to connected car announcements. The carrier is partnering with Autonet Mobile to bring LTE connectivity to Autonet's telematics solution. Meanwhile, AT&T is upgrading an aftermarket connected car solution from Audiovox.
Smartphones are becoming more ubiquitous in the United States and Americans are also simultaneously relying on them for broadband access, according to a new survey from Pew Research.
