Meerkat halts livestreaming plan, will transition to social network

meerkat_logo_220

Meerkat CEO Ben Rubin has decided to transform the Meerkat experience, after livestreaming tools from Twitter-owned Periscope and Facebook pushed users away.

Rubin sent around an email to investors around a fortnight ago, Re/code reports, with the message openly admitting to Meerkat’s struggles. It turns out that whilst Meerkat’s livestreaming functionality was a hit, competitors offering a similar service elsewhere were having a huge impact on interest.

Meerkat’s boss wrote:

“Mobile broadcast video hasn’t quite exploded as quickly as we’d hoped. The distribution advantages of Twitter/Periscope and Facebook Live drew more early users to them away from us and we were not able to grow as quickly alongside as we had planned.”

Speaking to Re/code about the next step for Meerkat, Ben Rubin has revealed that his app is waving goodbye to its old self, now focused on delivering a social network where “everybody is always live.”

Whilst the Meerkat app still functions as it always has, the team behind the app are now putting their attention and time into other projects.

Understandably, Rubin remains tight-lipped when it comes to discussing the future of Meerkat and the planned changes, however it’s thought that the new experience will be more Skype-esque in nature.

Re/code notes that it’s likely Meerkat will turn its attention from live-streaming content to strangers around the world to private conversations with friends in smaller, group video chats.

Just how long it’ll take Meerkat to make the transition remains to be seen, but we’re very interested to see where Meerkat goes.

Sprint is bringing their stronger, faster LTE Plus network to 77 markets

sprint_logo_wall_signSprint has announced a revamped LTE services to deploy to markets with a significantly improved wireless experience for customers. This new network is deploying to 77 markets today, and it offers some notable new technologies that should make a world of difference for Sprint customers.

LTE Plus utilizes all three of Sprint’s bands of spectrum, using the 2.5 GHz band for speed, the 1.9 GHz band for coverage, and the 800 MHz band for building penetration. Carrier aggregation allows LTE Plus to bond multiple spectrums together to beef up the bandwidth and speed available to users, and Sprint claims the new network doubles both of those. Pretty impressive, especially considering that claim means capable devices can reach theoretical speeds of up to 100Mbps on that network.

sprint LTE plus

The biggest claim that LTE Plus can make? It’s faster than Verizon and AT&T’s LTE network. Third party testing in 44 of the biggest markets show that data is transferred faster on Sprint’s LTE Plus network than Verizon or AT&T’s LTE network, which should give Sprint’s marketing department some serious ammunition to work with.
