We at Mobile Magazine strive to provide the latest news relating to the mobile technology industry. Our very own YouTube channel showcases the next generation of communication technology, as well as sharing interviews and engaging clips from mobile and tech events.
It is no secret that YouTube and alternative sites are growing in popularity for a source of information, as well as entertainment. Last year, British broadcasting regulator Ofcom reported that social media is starting to overtake traditional channels for news, especially among teenagers. This is particularly prevalent when considering technology, as individuals and companies are able to instantly share the latest developments and events taking place in the sector.
With this in mind, here are 10 more fantastic YouTube channels that provide the latest information concerning the mobile industry.
10: CTIA Everything Wireless
This is a smaller YouTube channel that provides plenty of tech information for the company that it represents. CTIA works with the US wireless communications industry and the companies throughout the mobile “ecosystem” and ultimately their goal is to get people to be better connected.
Video content consists of clips from tech events such as MWC Las Vegas and hearing from those within the industry discuss the expansion of 5G networks. More recent videos include a new Wireless Spotlight series that features interviews with CEOs and managers of companies such as Intel and UScellular.
TelecomTV is a multimedia information resource for the communications networking industry. It delivers insight into key tech developments that are shaping the future of the telecoms, as well as the digital connectivity industry.
The channel’s videos adopt a news-style format, with speakers discussing current events in the tech world.

8: Tech Life Channel
Tech Life Channel creates multiple short announcement videos daily concerning all content that is technology related. Some of the vastly different topics discussed are wireless networks, speed tests and mobile phone devices, to name a few.
