Verizon Wireless Enhances Service on BART

January 21, 2015 9:46 PM | Verizon | Comments (0)


Verizon Wireless yesterday announced it has enhanced its service on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) to provide riders with the best high-speed data experience possible. Throughout BART tunnels, stations and the Transbay Tube, Verizon deployed XLTE, adding more capacity to its 4G LTE network to deliver faster peak data speeds for commuters.

"With more than 400,000 daily BART riders, we want to ensure they stay connected and productive," said Phillip French, executive director of Network for Verizon Wireless. "Bay Area commuters expect a strong and reliable connection, so we continue to invest in the network to deliver a superior experience for our customers."

Verizon's enhanced service is now available to BART riders throughout the East Bay and San Francisco, with the Colma to Millbrae section to be completed by mid-2015. Verizon Wireless' Advanced Calling 1.0 (VoLTE) is also now available throughout the BART system.

As part of its commitment to ensure its customers have a powerful, reliable network, Verizon Wireless invested $9.4 billion in its wireless network last year. In California alone, the company has invested nearly $8.5 billion in the network since being founded in 2000.

New Prepaid Smartphone Plans: More Data, Same Starting Price

January 21, 2015 9:45 PM | Verizon | Comments (0)


Prepaid plans have always been about being flexible, valuable, and customizable. Picking the right plan, right device, and the most reliable network make Verizon the right choice for prepaid customers.

Starting today, Verizon Wireless doubled the data on the $45 prepaid monthly smartphone plans to include 1 GB of data. As a bonus, customers who enroll in Auto Pay can receive an additional 500MB of data every month.

Why plan out your data needs a month in advance? Users can customize their prepay plan with data add-ons to create the plan that suits their needs best. If you didn’t use all the data, no need to worry – the $10 and $20 data options allow you to carry  it over for up to 90 days.

AT&T Demos LTE Broadcast

January 13, 2015 7:43 PM | AT&T | Comments (0)

AT&T demonstrated the first-ever live, on-site trial demonstration of AT&T LTE Broadcast, a new mobile network technology, that showcased for invited guests during the first-ever college football national championship game at AT&T Stadium January 12.

LTE Broadcast is a new mobile network technology AT&T is currently exploring that enables the delivery of content directly to all users with compatible devices within a designated timeframe and area. It could be used to distribute a wide range of content including music, video, and software to specific areas within our LTE footprint, such as a single sports stadium.

In simple terms, LTE Broadcast works by allocating a portion of wireless network resources to host specific content streams that any compatible device can access simultaneously.  Delivering the same content stream to multiple users, rather than delivering each user their own individual content stream, optimizes network resources.

Facebook Now Has AMBER Alerts

January 13, 2015 7:29 PM | Services | Comments (0)

Facebook today announced a partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to send AMBER Alerts to the Facebook community to help find missing children.

The new initiative will deliver AMBER Alerts to people’s News Feeds in targeted search areas after a child has been abducted and the National Center has issued an alert.

These alerts, which include photographs and other details about the missing child, are shown on mobile and desktop. People can share the alert with friends and link directly to the National Center’s missing child poster, which always has the most up-to-date information about the case.

For years, people have used Facebook to post news articles about missing children and AMBER Alerts. In several cases, someone saw a post or photo in their News Feed, took action, and a child was safely returned.

In 2014, an 11-year-old girl was safely recovered after a motel owner recognized her from an AMBER Alert that a friend had shared on Facebook. The woman called the police, and the child was found unharmed. It’s amazing word-of-mouth efforts like this that inspired us to develop a more systematic way to help find missing children on Facebook.

We know the chances of finding a missing child increase when more people are on the lookout, especially in the critical first hours. Our goal is to help get these alerts out quickly to the people who are in the best position to help.

LG Curved Smartphone Unveiled at CES 2015

January 5, 2015 9:16 PM | LG | Smartphone | Comments (0)

LG Electronics (LG) continues to push the industry boundaries with the unveiling of the new G Flex2 at the 2015 International CES® in Las Vegas. The original G Flex earned positive reviews for its innovative design and outside-the-box thinking. One year later, the G Flex2 improves upon its predecessor in every way possible with a more advanced design, faster performance and most importantly, greater convenience.

The LG G Flex2 boasts sleeker, more stylish curves and a powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 810 processor with Octa-Core 64-bit capable CPUs for a nimbler and smoother performance. Its 5.5-inch display gets a bump up to Full HD, while the updated software offers even more conveniences through all-new features such as Gesture View and Glance View. The unique “Self Healing” back cover from the original G Flex carries over to the G Flex2 and is now faster and more effective than before.

Beauty In The Details

The G Flex2 goes beyond its predecessor’s groundbreaking 700mm radius curved profile. The new smartphone harmoniously incorporates a symphony of curves ranging from a radius of 400mm to 700mm across the front, back, sides and top-to-bottom edges.The dynamically curved layers deliver a sleeker and more dynamic look to G Flex2.

However, the G Flex2’s curves are for more than looks. The phone’s ergonomic design brings the microphone closer to the mouth, for better sound pickup compared to conventional smartphones which allow much more outside noise to enter the phone through the microphone.  The slimmed down 5.5 inches screen with curvatures makes the perfect fit for eyes and the grip. The display’s 700mm radius curvature delivers a truly immersive viewing experience from any angle, while the steeper 650mm radius curvature of the back is more comfortable to grip and fits easier in the pocket. The display’s resolution has also been bumped up to 1080p Full HD, which makes every UI detail appear crisp and alive. The P-OLED display, which gives the G Flex2 its unique shape and durability, is even more precise than in the original G Flex.

Turning the phone over reveals handcrafted details such as the Spin Hairline Pattern on the G Flex2’s curved rear, which showcases the subtle yet brilliant polish of the surface from every angle.

T-Mobile Unveils Data Stash - Now Your Unused Data Rolls Forward

December 17, 2014 7:50 PM | T-Mobile | Comments (0)

T-Mobile today announced its next industry-rocking Un-carrier move − eliminating the infuriating wireless industry practice of confiscating unused data you’ve already paid for. With Un-carrier 8.0, high-speed data you don’t use each month automatically rolls into a personal Data Stash so you can use it when you need it for up to a year. And, the best part is that Data Stash is included at no extra charge for every single new and existing T-Mobile customer – individual, family or business – on an eligible postpaid Simple Choice plan who buys extra high-speed data for their smartphone or tablet.
 
In addition, T-Mobile announced they will start every Data Stash with a whopping 10 GB of 4G LTE data – for free. That’s 10 GB of free data for every line in the family on a qualifying plan. And on top of that, the Un-carrier announced several major new milestones in the build-out of its Data Strong network.
 
“Can you imagine your gas station siphoning unused gas from your car each month? The US wireless industry is even worse,” said John Legere, president and CEO for T-Mobile. “Americans have been gamed by the carriers into buying huge data plans – all to avoid getting screwed with overage penalties. Only to find out they bought more than they need which is then confiscated by the carrier. For the consumer it’s lose, lose.
