Are you a T-Mobile Simple Choice customer who struggles to pick up a strong, reliable 4G connection in your home? If so, you may want to listen up, as the carrier has just announced its brand new 4G LTE CellSpot tower which provides extended LTE coverage for up to 3,000 square feet.
We’ve been hearing plenty of rumors about T-Mobile’s Uncarrier X move that’s set to be unveiled on November 10th, and we know it’s got something to do with video streaming. Now it looks like Evan Blass, better known as @evleaks on Twitter, has uncovered more details on exactly what that initiative entails. Read more
LG has announced that its latest smartphone, the V10, will start shipping in China, Hong Kong and the United States this week. The handset will then make its way to “key markets” in Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America and the Middle East.
There’s a new phone from Alcatel OneTouch coming to MetroPCS next week. On November 2, the carrier will add the Fierce XL to its lineup.
If Evan Blass is to be believed, T-Mobile will soon allow unlimited high speed data for customers watching content from select video streaming services. Blass tweeted this morning that Team Magenta’s Un-carrier X move will make it possible for customers to never worry about hurting their swift data speeds by streaming video from services like Netflix or HBO. The carrier intends to keep its network operating at full capacity so that video streaming isn’t hindered by buffering or poor image quality.
This benefit for T-Mobile customers would be similar to the existing perk of not having music streaming count against data speeds.

UPDATE: It happened. the T-Mobile plane took to the skies today to write “#AbolishOverages” above Verizon’s headquarters. John Legere’s Tweet reads, “HEY verizon! LOOK UP!! NOW DO WHAT CUSTOMERS WANT!!” Will Big Red respond? We’ll have to wait and see.
