If you would’ve told me that there are still people and businesses out there interested in push-to-talk phones and services, I would’ve called you a liar. Well, turns out I’m wrong. At&t mobile has just announced that they will be expanding their push-to-talk trials to more cities due to high interest, higher-than-expect demand and interest in this type of service.
Just a week after Sprint announced that they will be phasing out the Nextel PPT frequencies and network, at&t announces that they will be expanding their PPT coverage nationwide. At&t has also partnered with phone manufacturers and will be releasing 5 PPT-enabled phones, including the South-Korean giant Samsung, exclusively for this service. Their PTT program will be expanding the 26 cities around the US, including New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas and Seattle.
