Back in May of this year, it was reported that Verizon Wireless had its own plans to launch a streaming TV service.
Today, Verizon has officially announced that a major data breach in the year 2013 effectively breached all of Yahoo’s accounts at the time.
Apple was happy to announce that the third-generation Apple Watch would host more than a few changes by way of watchOS 4 but that the upcoming wearable would keep mostly the same design cues in place.
Verizon accidentally confirmed the arrival of the Apple Watch Series 3 on its app over the weekend. This error appeared very briefly on the My Verizon app before the carrier took it down. The app listed the Apple Watch Series 3 under the configuration page which is used to add a new device to a Verizon account.
Wireless carriers brag about data speeds and network availability all the time, so independent reports from the likes of Ookla, who hosts the popular SpeedTest service, are important and praise worthy (when a carrier earns top marks).
Verizon customers recently noticed that their video streaming was being capped to 480p on services like Netflix even when they hadn’t reached their 22GB usage limit. This appears to have been the beginning of a bigger plan, with Verizon now confirming that all video streamed on its unlimited plans will be capped to 480p by default on smartphones and 720p or 1080p on tablets.
Back in February of this year, OpenSignal published its “State of Mobile Networks” results, which showed that Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile were tied for the top spot when it came to speed rankings.
Earlier today, a report surfaced that suggested that Verizon Wireless was throttling some video content, specifically from YouTube and Netflix.
T-Mobile is offering an attractive new promotion in an attempt to poach Verizon customers. If a VZW customer is willing to switch over to T-Mobile, the customers get to keep their iPhone that they bring from Verizon. Further, T-Mobile will clear all the balances against the device, regardless of the cost.
Another day, another company that has the means to launch a streaming TV service and plans to do just that.
