How many people work for the nation’s Tier 1 wireless carriers? That’s the simple question this report aims to answer. The data below are derived from Securities and Exchange Commission filings from the nation’s largest wireless carriers for the past three years. In reviewing these numbers, it’s clear that AT&T is by far the largest employer in the wireless carrier space.
Google announced its Project Fi MVNO more than two years ago. In the intervening years, Google has added two additional major wireless partners (three in Europe and U.S. Cellular in the United States) and a family plan. And one new phone, the Pixel. Google’s Project Fi is still headed by the same executives—Nick Fox, VP of communications products at Google, and Project Fi product manager Simon Arscott—and it still offers the same $10-per-GB pricing options that it started with in April 2015.
Total wireless industry TV ad spending decreased for the second month in a row, down to an estimated $180 million in May from about $200 million in April. Overall, 21 brands ran 108 TV spots over 38,200 times. Verizon continued to lead the pack with just over a quarter of the entire industry spend, followed closely by T-Mobile, while usual top-five finisher AT&T Wireless was noticeably absent.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
