AT&T expands 4G LTE, wireless home phone, gains Pebble smartwatch
<a href=" 2m.fon.hotspots/" rel='nofollow'>AT&T</a> has made a number of announcements, for both its wireless network and devices offered through it. The carrier has expanded its wireless-based home phone service into more markets, rolled its 4G LTE coverage into more areas, and has become the exclusive US carrier of the Kickstarter-funded <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Pebble smartwatch</a>. <br />
<br />
The company's <a href=" t.for.10.devices/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">Wireless Home Phone and Internet</a> service, launched over the summer and provides a landline connection as well as acting as a Wi-Fi hotspot, will be going live in new areas, <a href="" rel='nofollow'>reports</a> <em>The Verge</em>. Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont will be able to get hold of and use the units, which costs $200 on its own or free on a two-year contract, with a monthly cost of between $20 for unlimited voice calls and $60 for 10GB of included data. <br />
<br />
Its <a href="" rel='nofollow'>4G LTE network</a> is still being rolled out across the country, adding Marysville, CA; Statesboro, GA; Joplin, MO; Carson City, NV; Portsmouth, OH; East Stroudsburg, PA; San Angelo, TX; and Bellingham, WA. This brings AT&T to a total of over 400 markets for 4G LTE availability. <br />
<br />
The <a href=" .extra.cost/" rel='nofollow'>Pebble smartwatch</a>, a device with an e-paper display that synchronizes with a smartphone over Bluetooth, will be heading to a few of the carrier's retail stores and its website beginning September 27th, with broader availability expected in October. It will be on sale for $150, the same price as it is available for in <a href=" .after.kickstarter.orders.completed/" rel='nofollow'>Best Buy</a>. It is unclear what exactly prompted this action, but it will give AT&T customers a choice of smartwatch between the Pebble and the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Samsung Galaxy Gear</a>.
