Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ pass through FCC, confirming some minor details about the duo

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

Hot on the heels of last night's Galaxy S9 box leak, the S9/S9+ duo has passed through the US's FCC. Unfortunately, since these major companies know how impatient and clever us tech nerds can be, most of the information necessary to make it through the FCC has been obscured from the eyes of the common folk. There's still some information to be gleaned here, though.

First off, the US models of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are internally designated as SM-G960U and SM-G965U, respectively.

T-Mobile quietly launches LTE CellSpot V2 and Signal Booster Duo

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

T-Mobile has done a lot to improve its network in recent years, but there are still places where you can't get a good signal. The carrier has long offered devices to boost signal, and it quietly snuck out some new versions of them this month. T-Mobile is now offering the CellSpot V2 and Signal Booster Duo to qualifying customers for (mostly) free.

If you have some signal in your home, but coverage is lacking, you can grab the Signal Booster Duo from Tmo.

Verizon updates Moto Z2 Force with support for its upcoming Gigabit LTE

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

5G is still a year or two away, and even then, hardly any phones will support the technology. Many networks have yet to saturate the existing LTE wireless standard, but Verizon (among other carriers) has been working toward that goal in some areas. Verizon has started pushing an update to the Moto Z2 Force, giving it support for the carrier's upcoming 'Gigabit Class LTE' service.

Verizon has been testing an upgraded LTE network over the past few months.

T-Mobile Will Limit LTE Roaming in Canada and Mexico to 5GB starting November 12

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

One of T-Mobile's big "uncarrier" moves was to offer international roaming data to most customers for free. However, Canada and Mexico were special cases where you'd get full-speed LTE data on most plans. There wasn't any special limit on that data, which was remarkably generous—too generous, it would seem. T-Mobile is rolling that feature back and limiting LTE to 5GB per month in those countries.

Starting on November 12th, T-Mobile is altering its "Mobile without Borders" program for all customers on One, Simple Choice, and other legacy plans with roaming.

T-Mobile boosts prioritization point on unlimited lines from 32GB to 50GB

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

T-Mobile is all in on unlimited data plans—you can't even buy a traditional capped plan anymore. Oh, there are still limits, of course, but Tmo isn't alone there. However, T-Mobile is making one of its unlimited limits a bit less irksome. Unlimited users now have to use more data before the network starts slowing them down.

Like other carriers, T-Mobile drops your network priority after you use a certain amount of data.

T-Mobile has started deploying 600MHz LTE, phones coming later this year

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

T-Mobile spent big on the FCC's 600MHz spectrum auction earlier this year, and it's already putting those new licenses to use. The carrier reports that it's flipped the switch on 600MHz LTE in Cheyenne, Wyoming using new Nokia equipment. Residents of Cheyenne can't do anything with that fancy new network yet, though. No current phones have support for the latest network technology, but that'll change in the coming months.

This first market is a test for T-Mobile.

We learned a few months ago that T-Mobile spent big in the FCC's recent 600MHz spectrum auction. The carrier dropped $7.99 billion on the spectrum licenses, which it has now officially been granted. It's wasting no time putting them to use. T-Mobile says it will begin rolling 600MHz coverage out to select markets over the summer.

T-Mobile's launch of the 700MHz band 12 spectrum several years ago was a game-changer for coverage, especially indoors.
