T-Mobile Tries To Shake Things Up By Announcing Truly Unlimited Data Plans



T-Mobile isn’t exactly the carrier of choice these days. After their failed merger with AT&T, they seem to be lost in carrier limbo.

Verizon and Redbox’s Joint Venture Gives Birth To A Clever Name: Redbox Instant By Verizon



Okay, so I was being sarcastic about the clever name. Nevertheless, the joint venture announced by Redbox and Verizon back in February has finally given birth to an official name, and that name is Redbox Instant by Verizon. Together, Verizon and Redbox plan on bringing yet another video on-demand streaming and download service to the market.

Another Month, Another 30+ Markets Being Lit Up With Verizon 4G LTE
