As the week winds down join Wireless Week for a look back at the biggest stories in from the past seven days.
T-Mobile introduced a promotional unlimited LTE family plan starting at $100 for two lines and $40 for additional lines up to 10. Sounds like a good plan for families who bicker over data buckets and don’t live overages but it could mean more competitive pressure for wireless carriers.
Verizon Tuesday said it’s battening down the hatches as increased competition has some short-term pressure zoning in on its wireless revenue and margins. All the major carriers’ stock took a hit.
AT&T announced an expansion to its VoLTE availability. AT&T SVP of Technology and Operations John Donovan expects the carrier to have a reliability advantage when it comes to the voice technology. Meanwhile, AT&T is working on VoLTE interoperability with Verizon and “other wireless carriers.”
Apple and IBM introduced the first spawn of their enterprise mobility cooperative effort. The companies rolled out a series of apps and cloud services for a variety of industries and announced early clients like Citi and Sprint.
