Samsung Pay's slow advance continues. Last month new markets in Sweden and the UAE were given support for the platform, and today it looks like the UK is up next. We have yet to see a confirmed report or press release from Samsung — as they have done for their other market roll-outs.

34 Potential New Google Fiber Markets Announced, Including Atlanta, Charlotte, Phoenix, Portland, And Others

Google Fiber coming to your city, with its promise of gigabit Internet speeds up to 100 times faster than what most of us currently put up with, is about as awesome as winning the lottery often enough to buy Time Warner Cable yourself and using all of the company's resources to funnel a connection to your house and yours only. Thus far the service has only appeared in a few parts of the country, namely Kansas City, Austin, and Provo. Today Google has announced that Fiber may be heading to 34 additional cities spread across nine metropolitan areas.

Sprint Introduces 4G LTE Availability To 41 New Markets, Brings Nationwide Coverage Up To 151 Total

Think of Sprint as the Little Engine That Could. It's tinkered with 4G perhaps longer than any of America's other major carriers, but it has little to show for it. There are large swaths of the country that don't have LTE coverage and the speeds aren't necessarily that fast in the areas that do. Still, those of us on Sprint's network must hold on to hope. The company is hard at work, and today they've announced the availability of 4G LTE in 41 new markets. Faster Sprint service is now available in both Brooklyn and the Bronx, along with Philadelphia, Portland, Daytona Beach, and Jacksonville.

Two years ago, Verizon Wireless announced plans to launch a nationwide 4G LTE network.

Four-hundred markets is an impressive feat no doubt, but what makes it even more incredible is that VZW is running two months ahead of schedule. Too bad they can't get OTA updates out that fast. Ba-zing!
