The new round will auction about 8,000 county-based licenses in the 2.5 GHz spectrum band – mostly in rural parts of the United States of America.
Verizon and AT&T have voluntarily agreed to defer some C-Band 5G usage until July 2023, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), as air carriers strive to adapt planes to ensure they do not face interference.
Wireless providers have a variety of tools at their disposal to improve 4G or 5G services un-der certain conditions. One such piece of equipment is called a COW, an acronym that used to stand for Cellular on Wheels, but now, with the new technology, the ‘W’ represents ‘Wings’.
As announced last December, 3G networks are becoming a thing of the past. From flip phones to iPads, many devices will be impacted by the shutdown. Here is everything you need to know.
The next-generation network has been welcomed with open arms by more than half of the population of the developed world, which is familiar with the advantages of 5G. Europe has thus implemented the new technology and launched 5G networks without a hitch, and it is also widely used in the East, especially in China, where 5G is widely accepted.
U.S. operators AT&T and Verizon will launch their 5G network on January 19 after the federal government forced them to postpone the deployment of fifth-generation network for two weeks at the insistence of the aviation industry.
In a joint open letter, the executives of U.S. telecommunications companies Verizon and AT&T rejected the request from the federal government to delay their planned January 5 launch of 5G services for two weeks. The companies did, however, agree not to set up a 5G network near air-ports for a six-month period, but believe it would be irresponsible to delay the development of the global economy due to unfounded fears of the aviation industry.
T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon all announced they would shut down their 3G services this year, shifting the focus entirely to 4G (LTE) and 5G networks in 2022. The first to do so will be the U.S. carrier AT&T, who will discontinue the service in February.
