Interestingly enough, one of our reliable tipsters informed us that Big Red is just about wrapping up their employee 4G LTE upgrade pilot, which allowed certain employees to partake in the beta test. Specifically, we’re told that the entire process took exactly 3 business days, which is surprisingly fast considering that the tablet is required to be shipped back to the manufacturer and prepped for surgery. However, we really can’t expect the turn time to be exactly the same for the general public since it was more than likely expedited for this employee pilot.
Nevertheless, our tipster goes on to say that the Motorola XOOM is completely transformed from before now that it’s able to put up amazing speeds of around 18 Mbps. Seeing that the pilot program for employees was available until yesterday, August 29th, we may potentially see the entire thing go live to all customers very soon.
Thanks to our anonymous tipster!
