Nokia's Surprising 2nd Shot at the Wireless Game


By Jeff Kagan

11/20/14 6:40 AM PT

Many thought after Nokia sold its wireless phone business to Microsoft earlier this year, the company simply would fade away from the space. However, all of a sudden it's starting to look like Nokia is coming back. It just took the first step back into the wireless and tablet market with its new Google Android tablet.

It appears Nokia is getting ready to re-enter the smartphone space in 2016, competing with industry leaders like Apple iPhone, Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy and Microsoft, which acquired its smartphone business, including the Lumia line.

What a turnaround. Will it be successful? Stranger things have happened, haven't they?

C Spire Faces Telecom Giants in the Race for High Speed Internet

By    Jeff Kagan   +Follow          November 20, 2014 12:38PM   

Tickers Mentioned: T  GOOG  VZ  CTL  S  CMCSA  TWC

Ultra-high speed 1 GB Internet service has been starting to capture serious attention from individuals and companies in the United States. So far, it looks like AT&T (T)  and Google (GOOG)  are most aggressively building out this capability in the largest number of cities from coast-to-coast. This has created a very hungry marketplace that really wants this speed. Now C Spire has joined the race and is bringing this ultra fast service to Mississippi.

Rural Mississippi Becomes the Unlikely Hub of Online Innovation

This ultra fast Internet service is wanted in cities and states all over the country. Customers in the initial cities love the speed. However it is important to realize we are just in the beginning of this major industry-wide build-out and transformation.

This has created an appetite for the service from coast to coast. So far, AT&T is offering this fast Internet service in the most number of cities and has the most number of cities they are building. Google Fiber is next. You would expect another big name company like Verizon (VZ) , CenturyLink (CTL)  or Cox to be in the number three position, but not so fast..

The number three spot seems to belong to C Spire in Mississippi. C Spire Wireless is an independent wireless carrier based in the Ridgeland, MS area that offers service to a few southern states.
