Wireless telephones work by communicating via radio waves using a system of base stations (sometimes known as “cell sites”) that send and receive calls and relay them to other networks, like the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN)…
AT&T was announced as a big winner in the FCC Auction of frequency for next generation wireless services, and with AT&T expecting to deliver AT&T 3G services to nearly 350 major U.S. markets by the end of the year, they are already planning for the years ahead when our bandwidth needs are greater and more digital mobile services are in use.
With broadband speeds in the hundreds of Megabits – this is no slow connection and promises much for the future of wireless.
Cellphones are an intimate part of the human anatomy for many people during these ADD riddled times. While some may find their cellphone without power on the kitchen counter when they actually are leaving to go somewhere, many of us are actually attached to our phones for most hours of the day, save sleeping time.
