AT&T LTE Service Comes to Gainesville and New Counties

AT&T LTE coverage map has expanded to some of the new counties and this service is now available in Gainesville. If you live in Boise, Nassau, Denver or Suffolk and if you travel to these places you should know that they are included to the AT&T coverage area plan.

The well-known U.S. mobile operator has plans to expand its AT&T coverage map across USA and offer 4G LTE connection to as many customers as possible. This week the company made an announcement that its services are coming to more counties as LTE technology becomes available in Gainesville.

AT&T LTE covarage map

The carrier spends billions of dollars into its coverage map and right now over 280 million U.S. consumers can enjoy getting the 4th-gen Long-Term Evolution radio service in different cities and states across the country.

Boise was added to 4G coverage map in December. Since then LTE service has been expanded to Caldwell and Nampa, including Denver-metro area and Westminster. The two counties Suffolk and Nassau also offer AT&T LTE coverage in Long Island and western Nassau. The carrier provides its services and signal across the metropolitan area in New York.

The list of places that receive 4G LTE for iPhone and iPad is pretty large. You can find Seaford, Melville, Bellmore, East Meadow in it as well as Deer Park, Plainview, North Bay Shore and Wantagn. The service is extended along Wantagn Parkway, Route 110, Long Island Expressway and many other areas.

You’ll be able to connect to the carrier’s 4G in Hempstead Turnpike, West Islip, Farmingdale, Sunrise Highway, Copiague, etc. We can continue this AT&T LTE coverage map as it continues to get new names and the mobile operator will add new areas to it in 2013.

It is interesting that the carrier spend about $98 billion in the past 5 years. Besides, this public company’s investments into the economy of the USA are much bigger than the ones of other firms since 2008.

1GB of Data for Free: AT&T Roaming Deal Offer

The 4G LTE service from AT&T carrier is now offered for free to users who travel to the U.K. This AT&T roaming deal might sound exciting for iPhone owners who hope to get free data to be used while in the United Kingdom, still its taste is a bit sour. We’ll explain why inside this story. Also remember AT&T deal with Alltel but this is another story.

The company signed its AT&T roaming deal with provider The Cloud to offer customers 1GB of free data abroad. If you are planning to visit the UK you’ll be able to access any of 16 thousand + Wi-Fi spots across the country.

AT&T roaming deal in UK

How to Get Your Free Data

What do you think about free roaming data offer? I think it could be a nice offer for those iPhone and iPad users who travel to the UK regularly. Of course, 1GB is not that much if you got used to checking emails, reading news and playing games online during your trip.

Those who wish to use this free data in the UK will have to subscribe to a data add-on. Also AT&T plans to expand in Europe. You can guess that this subscription is not free itself. The package costs some money. And this add-on leaves a sour taste. Don’t you agree?

To get this offer you have to download Wi-Fi International application from AT&T. It is free to get, and it is available in the App Store.

Your Benefits

In case you happen to go to the UK all the time on business trips, you might like to get the new feature from your U.S. carrier and enjoy the benefits of this new AT&T roaming deal. You’ll be able to make free Skype calls to your friends and family. You’ll be also able to download some files over 4G LTE network coverage.

AT&T travelers should get the free application and use their free 1GB of data whenever they can.

Hackers Attack Apple Server And Sometimes It’s Status Down

An unusual Apple server status appeared after it was attacked by hackers from Eastern Europe, though some rumors also mention China as the country where Apple server attack comes from. These are just investigations, and nothing is known for sure for now. We only know that Apple server down was being witnessed by a lot of people worldwide as they read the news about this crime.

That’s why there are problems with activation after factory unlock. In the previous post you can see how to fix iPhone activation problems after IMEI unlock. But this methods don’t sometimes because of cyber attacks.

Who would think that we could see the message saying “Apple server not available” and “..try again later“after similar attacks on Facebook and Twitter? Would you ever believe it was possible to let Apple server down? Personally I thought it was fantastic, still it has happened.

apple server status

Criminals or hackers attack Apple server on purpose. It’s understood. And they are linked to folks from Eastern Europe, according to Bloomberg. Investigators even mention Russia and Ukraine as countries where hackers who let Apple server down 2013 might be located.

China is also linked to the attacks. Thus it’s difficult to say for sure who is responsible for the unbelievable Apple server status.

So what exactly happened? How did hackers Apple server down making it “not available” and “not responding?”

As the Cupertino-based company reports, its workers’ laptops were infected by unknown malware that got past Java vulnerability. We do know that Java plug-in for web browsers isn’t perfect and it can truly let the malware pass through.

Of course, the infected machines are now isolated from the company’s network, as no one wants bad guys steal data or do other things. Even though Apple believes no data left it, there is no evidence it didn’t happen during DDoS attacks on Apple server and iPhone activation problems. The source of this malware hasn’t been found yet.

There are rumors that the attacks came through site devoted to iPhone developer community. And Apple server status  It is believed to have been hosting the infected code that could make the way onto computers of iOS company employees.

The exploit on OS X machines is patched by Apple, and the Java Web applet is removed in the new upgrade released on Tuesday.

AT&T Wants to Buy Verizon Spectrum: What Worries Customers

The news about AT&T Verizon spectrum purchase is worth hearing. AT&T is willing to pay Verizon Wireless $1.9 billion to use its spectrum across 18 U.S. states and reach 300 million customers with this LTE network by 2015.

Right now all iPad users in the U.S. know that the 4G LTE networks of AT&T and Verizon are not compatible. Why has it happened? Can it ever change? Is this the main reason for customers looking for iPad Wi-Fi only models and ignoring the more expensive 4G LTE models? Being unable to switch mobile operators, iPad owners have to choose between the two carriers all the time.

AT&T Verizon spectrum purchase

Being locked to one carrier is not too great. Still U.S. customers who want to have Apple tablet computer have no choice as their AT&T device will not work on Verizon and vice versa. We’ll try to explain the main differences between the carriers’ networks and discuss the AT&T Verizon spectrum purchase event. You will also learn some other interesting facts.

The New iPad and Carriers

It is true that the new model of iPad is built for two carriers, AT&T and Verizon, differently. So you should choose which carrier you wish to use before you make a purchase. You must also know that your AT&T or Verizon tablet will not work on Sprint or MetroPCS.
This is very frustrating and sad when you are unable to roam onto another operator’s network. Verizon got the 700 MHz spectrum and promised the FCC to keep its network “open” yet this doesn’t mean that you are able to freely use any iPad on it. AT&T has the same spectrum while Sprint uses 1900 MHz and partly 800 MHz.

The question is why the two operators with the same spectrum cannot interoperate. The case is that 700 MHz band has a lot of band-classes and two portions (upper and lower) used by different carriers that are unable to interoperate. Verizon uses the upper block while AT&T has got the lower portion.

What to Expect Tomorrow?

Will this situation ever change? The FCC, of course, is trying to make different carriers that share the same band to interoperate. Even if this happens, mobile operators are able to “close” their network and lock gadgets to their service only.

If the AT&T purchase deal of Verizon spectrum becomes a reality the competition between the two carriers will get tougher, still it doesn’t mean that iOS customers will win as we have no idea whether it will be possible to use the same gadget within two carrier’s networks or not.
