T-Mobile is updating its network faster than Apple can update iPhones

T-Mobile's 600MHz will crush Verizon-

T-Mobile is bored of being the butt of jokes about bad cell service, and it's spending billions of dollars over the next couple years to change things. In order to catch up to the coverage of Verizon and AT&T, T-Mobile recently spent $8 billion on licenses prime low-band spectrum to improve coverage indoors and in rural areas.

The new spectrum is being freed up by relocating old analog TV stations, so we were expecting to wait years for the first deployment of T-Mobile's 600MHz network. But as it happens, the first new areas should be getting service this summer -- before any new phones actually support the new frequency.

Yet another study shows Verizon and T-Mobile are the fastest networks

Verizon vs T-Mobile: speed test

For the last decade, the wisdom of the ancients has held that there are two types of wireless network in the US: cheap and slow, or expensive and good. T-Mobile and Sprint were cheap, and AT&T and Verizon were fast.

But the last two years has seen a complete upset in the way networks work. T-Mobile became good, Verizon became cheap, and AT&T started bribing people with cheap cable. This week, a new study has come out confirming the new world order, and it has T-Mobile and Verizon on top.

Sprint’s LG G6 deal is good, but Best Buy’s is even better

LG G6 Deal: Sprint vs Verizon

Poor Sprint. It probably thought it would have a killer deal if it cut the price of the LG G6 in half forv Memorial Day, since not many people can turn down a $300 flagship phone. But unfortunately, the one thing better than a 50% off deal is the 65% off that Best Buy is offering on the Verizon version of the G6.

Verizon may have just made the world’s most pointless thing

Verizon SmartHub wireless broadband

Someone, somewhere, deep in the bowels of Verizon's marketing department, has apparently read a study saying that the Internet of Things is going to be the next iPhone. This noble Brand Crusader decided that Verizon should be a Thought Leader in this category, and directed the captive team of engineers to make a Product that demonstrates Verizon's commitment to the IoT.

But unfortunately, no one stopped along the way to think about whether this is a thing that anyone will want to buy.

Verizon iPhone owners, you’d be crazy to turn down this T-Mobile deal

T-Mobile vs Verizon iPhone deal

If there's one thing T-Mobile CEO John Legere loves more than gratuitous swearing, it's trolling Verizon's marketing department. T-Mobile's latest deal is a direct challenge to Verizon's customers, as it's making an offer that's difficult to beat: bring an iPhone or Pixel from Verizon to T-Mobile, and the company will pay off any device payments you have left, in full, no questions asked.

The offer is valid for any Verizon customers who have had their Verizon contract for at least 60 days, and who have a recent iPhone or Pixel. Specifically, the iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, or 7 Plus are eligible, as are the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

What this means is you can have bought a brand-new iPhone three months ago, still have $600 left to pay on it at Verizon, and T-Mobile will pay that off if you switch to one of its plans and let you keep the phone. That's a hard offer to beat.

Verizon confirms that a new TV streaming service is on the way

Verizon Streaming TV

Confirming a rumor that originally surfaced earlier this year, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam recently said that the company plans to launch an over-the-top TV streaming service later this year. Not to be confused with Verizon's decent but relatively unpopular go90 streaming service which houses original content, Verizon's upcoming service will offer viewers something similar to a traditional cable package.

Verizon wins a network test that isn’t about speed

Best mobile network customer service

Normally, Verizon wins tests and comparisons based on its network coverage and only its network coverage. But to mix things up a little, Tom's Guide decided to compare basic customer service experiences across all the major postpaid and prepaid carriers, and Verizon ran away with first place.

Verizon’s new $80 unlimited prepaid plan isn’t exactly unlimited

Verizon $80 Unlimited Prepaid Plan

Verizon on Tuesday announced a new unlimited plan, this time targeting customers who’re more interested in prepaid offers rather than contracts. The plan sounds great on paper, but it’s not as unlimited as you might think. There’s a fine print you need to be aware of, which isn’t surprising considering that, unlike prepaid fans, Verizon is more interested in postpaid customers.

Verizon is losing customers like crazy, even with unlimited data plans

Verizon earnings, customer losses

In the first six weeks of 2017, Verizon Wireless lost 398,000 on-contract wireless customers. Considering that analysts expected Verizon to add nearly 250,000 customers in the first quarter, that's dire.

It's only thanks to Verizon's launch of unlimited plans that the bloodshed isn't worse. In the weeks after Verizon launched an unlimited plan, it stopped losing customers and actually gained 109,000 subscribers, bringing the net loss of customers in the first quarter to 289,000.

Verizon is spending big to make its 4G network even faster

Verizon speeds vs T-Mobile

Verizon's pitch has always been simple: pay us more money than any other wireless carrier, get the fastest speeds and best network coverage in return. But in recent years, it's been slipping. Thanks to the rollout of 4G technology and major investors by rivals, T-Mobile and AT&T are virtually level in terms of mobile data speed, and coverage is left as Verizon's last real advantage. That won't last for long.

So, it makes all kinds of sense that Verizon is investing $1.05 billion to buy millions of miles of fiber-optic cable over the next few years, paving the way for faster 4G, setting the network up for the coming switch to 5G, and rolling out faster broadband to homes.
