Reston, Virginia-based Nextel is letting customers who talk for more time than allowed in their monthly service plans, automatically upgrade to a costlier plan with more minutes -- in a small number of markets, Nextel spokeswoman Audrey Schaefer said.

This option means that talkative customers would pay a set amount extra if they go over the agreed minutes and avoid the unpredictab...

AT&T Wireless Reconsiders Nokia PTT Solution

Yesterday, 2:12 PM source: TheStreet.com

In a conference call with analysts Friday, AT&T Wireless executives said there had been "a change of plan" in the company's efforts to launch Push-To-Talk (PTT) walkie-talkie service. The company had previously committed to deploying "pre-standard" PoC technology from Nokia. AT&T Wireless executives said they would now delay their PTT project indefinitely, instead working with other carriers (presumably Cingular) to agree on a common platform. Nokia's technology differs from the PoC proposal backed by Ericsson, Motorola and Siemens. The OMA standards grou...

ATLANTA - Nextel Communications Inc. isn't waiting for more mobile operators to roll out would-be competitors to Direct Connect, the pioneering "push-to-talk" service that lets subscribers talk instantly to friends and associates. It's charging ahead to extend that service and its capabilities.

Plans include expanding the service internationally through its Nextel Worldwide service, adding data services to it and linking the QChat system for CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) and Wideband CDMA (WCDMA) to Nextel's iDEN network, Nextel executives said at a press briefing in Atlanta on the eve of the CTIA Wireless trade show.

Direct Connect is set to hit the streets th...

Nextel pushes new 'push to talk' features
Last modified: March 17, 2004, 5:29 PM PST

Staff Writer, CNET News.com

Nextel Communications wants its popular walkie-talkie cell phone feature to work when a wireless network isn't available, a move that could give it a leg up on carriers that offer similar so-called push-to-talk technology.

At an investor conference Wednesday, Nextel Chief Executive Tim Donahue described the new service as an "off-network push to talk" with a much shorter range than the company's current nationwide DirectConnect push-to-talk service.

Nextel equipment supplier Motorola developed the technology for the new service, which relie...

NEXTEL Flarion outperforms CDMA2000 1x EV-DO

Nextel Communications Inc.’s decision earlier this week to expand its wireless broadband network trial in the Raleigh, N.C., market may have proven well founded as network testing conducted by RBC Capital Markets indicated Flarion Technologies’ Flash-OFDM based technology is providing data speeds nearly three times faster than CDMA2000 1x EV-DO networks and equal to wireline-based broadband offerings.
