Verizon has kicked off a new marketing campaign to promote recent improvements to its wireless network that the company is branding as “XLTE.”
Under the new campaign, Verizon is promising customers that it has doubled the bandwidth of its wireless network in about 250 of its markets across the United States, including most major cities, including Manchester and Nashua, N.H.
The New Jersey company has promised customers speeds of 5 to 12 megabits per second since it introduced its LTE network in 2010. But earlier this year, a report said Verizon delivered speeds of 7.6 Mbps on average, third to T-Mobile and AT&T. The extra XLTE capacity should help improve average speeds.
Sprint will pay $7.5 million to resolve federal regulators’ inquiry into its failure to honor consumers’ requests that they not receive telemarketing calls or texts, the Federal Communications Commission said Monday.
Under the latest accord, Sprint will have to implement a compliance plan and update regulators on its efforts during the next two years.
In an emailed statement, Crystal Davis, a Sprint spokeswoman, said the settlement pertained to issues “resulting from technical and inadvertent human errors” that the company reported to the FCC.
