July 21, 2018 - Written By Dominik Bosnjak AT&T named three more cities that will receive 5G connectivity by the end of the year, having announced it’s expanding its next-generation wireless program to Charlotte, Raleigh, and Oklahoma City. The company’s 5G initiative has already been confirmed as encompassing Dallas, Atlanta, and Waco, with AT&T first outlining the details of its plan in February. Half a dozen more cities are also expected to be used as 5G testbeds by the company in the coming months and AT&T is likely to announce their names by the end of summer.The Dallas, Texas-based telecom giant planned its initial 5G deployment wave as including both large and medium-sized cities so as to allow it to test its next-generation technologies in a wide variety of scenarios.

Augustine (Posts: 1043; Member since: 28 Sep 2013) As a customer, I sure hope that there is a corresponding engineering push behind the sales push, for, unless T-mobile delivers the advertised service, it'll lose customers as quickly as it got'em. posted on 10 Jan 2014, 18:37 2 2. joseram695 (Posts: 79; Member since: 28 May 2012) I hope there not bought by softbank. posted on 10 Jan 2014, 18:39 3 3. romeoc1984 (Posts: 24; Member since: 12 Sep 2012) I am an outside event account manager for T-Mobile.

After all he was the one to start the whole investigation. Are all you Sprint loyalists happy now. posted on 23 Mar 2012, 20:48 3 9. anonex1 (Posts: 4; Member since: 23 Mar 2012) Lol no he won't. As a Sprint Customer care employee for several years, the recent months have really been unprecedented in our call center. For years, we often had back to back calls, customers waiting in que to talk to a representative. posted on 23 Mar 2012, 21:15 2 14. warriorbeats (Posts: 21; Member since: 20 Mar 2012) This is not true.

Before Verizon, Google and Motorola started marketing the DROID, the latter firm made sure that it had a deal with George Lucas to use the title. DROID. Thanks to Star Wars, Lucasfilm owned the rights to the use of the word and a deal was worked out. That is why on some documents and ads for Verizon's flagship handset, you see the phrase, "DROID is a trademark of Lucasfilm Ltd. and its related companies. Used under license," If HTC had followed the same path when naming the Nexus One, perhaps they wouldn't face the possibility of getting served and having to go to court.The late Philip K. Dick had written a book called, "Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep?" and the book featured Nexus 6 cyborgs. One of Dick's daughters, `Isa Dick Hackett, says that Google is committing a trademark violation. She says, "In my mind, there is a very obvious connection to my father's novel. People don't get it. It's the principle of it. It would be nice to have a dialogue. We are open to … [Read more...] about Google to get sued over Nexus One name?
T-Mobile and John Legere have done a lot of wacky things in the past, but this just might take the cake. As we write this on the east coast of the U.S., it is currently May 4th, also known by Star Wars fans as "May the Fourth" day as in "May the Fourth be with you." And if you're a regular PhoneArena reader, you probably know that T-Mobile CEO John Legere refers to AT&T as the Death Star because of the carrier's logo.Now here is the creative part. T-Mobile has created a Chrome extension that you can add to your desktop or laptop version of Chrome by going to the sourcelink. With the extension, every printed reference to AT&T changes the name of the company to "The DeATTh Star" with a small Death Star icon right next to it. Heck, it even works on AT&T's own website and Twitter page!T-Mobile also sent out some pictures showing the carrier's executives as Star Wars characters. CEO John Legere is Han Solo, COO Mike Sievert is Luke Skywalker, CTO Neville Ray portrays Obi-Wan … [Read more...] about T-Mobile celebrates May the Fourth with AT&T Death Star Chrome extension
