T-Mobile Starts Building Low-Band Wireless Network in the Sticks

T-Mobile last week announced that it has begun the long-anticipated rollout of its new 600-MHz LTE premium low-band spectrum network in Cheyenne, Wyoming, kicking off a massive rollout designed to provide wireless coverage to rural communities across the United States. T-Mobile acquired about 45 percent of the low-band spectrum licenses the FCC made available two months ago. It spent about $8 billion to gain access to millions of potential wireless customers in small communities where access to wireless and broadband coverage has been limited.

Apple May Show Up Fashionably Late at the Original TV Party

Apple reportedly plans to follow premium channels HBO and Showtime, as well as streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, in creating its own original TV shows and movies. The company may be negotiating agreements with veteran content producers to buy the rights to scripted television programs. It likely will offer its content through an over-the-top service similar to Netflix. The move to original TV content could be a major leap forward for Apple to promote not only its devices but its content delivery system.

Top Talent Jumps on Tidal Wave

Tidal has launched the premium tier of its subscription-based music streaming service, which costs twice the amount of a standard $10 account with the company. While the $20-per-month price tag for Tidal premium may seem steep, that subscription serves users lossless audio. The MP3 format reached Web stardom and widespread adoption because it used small files sizes to capture most of the sound mixed by artists in studios — most. However, to achieve files sizes that average about 1 MB per minute of audio, MP3s drop a good deal of quality.
