The US wireless carrier, Verizon, has been selling unlocked phones for a long time. In the limelight Monday, the carrier told a source that it will begin locking their devices. It has been said that this move will help safeguard their devices from theft.
Verizon secured the highest rank in wireless network quality performance in all six regions of the US. This is according to this year’s customer survey conducted by JD Power and RootMetrics (shown above). Verizon also won the “United States Text RootScore” award for a record ninth time in a row.
The most dissapointing news that struck media and consumers at CES 2018 was the fact AT&T called off its deal with Huawei. The US carrier was expected to be first to sell a Huawei smartphone in the US, but we later found out why the carrier passed on Huawei’s expansion plan. According to the latest report, Verizon will follow AT&T’s lead and not offer a Huawei smartphone either.
Leading up to CES 2018, many speculated that AT&T would be the first US carrier to supply a Huawei smartphone. This followed word from the manufacturer’s own CEO, who detailed that a US carrier would carry a Huawei flagship smartphone in 2018. Huawei held a press conference yesterday in Las Vegas, but instead of announcing US carrier support like most of us expected, the company simply talked about its plans for expanding to the US without a carrier’s involvement.
AT&T, America’s second largest carrier, has written that it expects to be the first American company to introduce a mobile 5G network, and by the end of 2018.
Verizon told us a few months ago that it would have prepared some Gigabit Class LTE for use on certain devices by the end of 2017. That didn’t exactly happen, but in a sign of progress being made, the carrier has provided a list of Gigabit LTE devices that are supported.
