As reported in Yahoo News, xG has released a statement on the news. “This another example of the growing importance of wireless spectrum as applications and people go mobile,” said an xG spokesman. “The $3.6 billion deal for additional spectrum shows how much value these airwaves contain for wireless operators. With this deal, the amount of unused licensed spectrum suitable for LTE is greatly diminished in the U.S.”
“However, carriers, public safety agencies and rural telcos have other options when it comes to deploying mobile broadband networks and the spectrum they’ll need to do it,” the statement continued. “Using xG’s xMax can save millions or even billions of dollars in capital outlays, since expensive and scare licensed frequencies are not required. This enables rural telcos, public safety, and other network operators to deploy 4G services without the typical costs associated with those networks.”
The statement concluded with the following: “xMax networks also support all existing smartphones, laptops, tablets and other IP capable devices, as well as the apps that run on these devices seamlessly and transparently. Customers can use the devices and apps they already know and love on the xMax network, with no changes required to any hardware or software in their devices.”
