In a world where unlimited data plans either don't exist much anymore, or are being throttled and aren't truly unlimited, Sprint realized that a good way for them to stay in the mobile phone game is to offer the coveted unlimited data plan. When they got ahold of the iPhone, they confirmed that they will be offering it for Apple's device, stating that their 3G network would be able to handle it. Now, a PR person from Sprint has confirmed that they'll be offering unlimited data for their 4G LTE network as well.
The venerable comedy show Saturday Night Live turned its satiric eye to the confusing, brand name and acronym laden world of cellular phone advertising with their satire of Verizon LTE ads last night. In it, a hapless customer endures a barrage of meaningless comparisons, buzzwords, and bewildering stats before reaching a rather inevitable conclusion. Oh, and even if you think you know what all those words meant, it's far more confusing than you might think.
Verizon has announced that their 4G LTE network, which they're claiming is ten times faster than 3G, will become available this Sunday, December 5, starting in 38 markets and in over 60 major airports.
