Some may remember that nearly a month ago, Randall Stephenson, the chief executive officer of AT&T, had hinted that mobile users everywhere might soon be able to experience the wonders of 5G not directly through their smartphones and tablet devices, but through 5G pucks. These pucks can basically serve as mobile 5G hotspots for consumers, at least until phone makers can start releasing true 5G compatible handsets in the market.
AT&T has decided to reduce the pricing of its unlimited data plan to $80 month, which is now ten bucks less expensive than its original rate. On top of that, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has also proceeded to throw in some pricing discounts, as well as added benefits, like a lifetime subscription to HBO, plus a $15 video credit for the mobile operator’s video service offerings.
There is no doubt about it -- some Android fans will already be itching to get their hands on Samsung’s newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus phablets. Well, they will not have to wait for long -- the handsets will be made available for preordering starting on March 2nd, and exactly two weeks later on March 16th, the South Korean tech giant’s newest toys will hit store shelves everywhere.
AT&T has recently announced that it is planning to introduce mobile 5G offerings in three specific new markets in the United States before the end of this year. These three new markets are Atlanta in Georgia, and Dallas and Waco in Texas. Dallas should be a no brainer considering that the second biggest wireless carrier in the country currently has its official headquarters in the Big D. Atlanta is also not a surprising choice, due to the fact that the capital city of Georgia also hosts a major AT&T corporate center.
By introducing its new buy one get one special offer for the iPhone X, AT&T just became the first major US wireless carrier to launch such a generous promotional deal for one of the three flagship devices that Apple had launched last year. The iPhone X, after all, is widely considered as the most expensive iPhone model to date (with a starting price of a thousand bucks), and a BOGO deal that features the handset is certainly most welcome.
Based on the latest report released by RootMetrics, the biggest mobile operator in the United States has retained its title of having the best network in the country. Not only that, Verizon Wireless has also managed to set a new record by winning the best network honor for a nine straight times, which no other carrier has accomplished.
Nearly a month ago, AT&T had announced its plans to start offering its 5G service in a dozen markets within the United States before the end of this year. But based on remarks made by Randall Stephenson, the chief executive officer of the wireless carrier, it is looking likely that the first 5G compatible devices will not be smartphones.
AT&T will reportedly soon introduce very generous discounts on a number of old iPhone models via its $45 per month prepaid plan. The talk is that the number two wireless service provider in the United States will be offering the 32 gigabyte edition of Apple’s iPhone 6s at just $344.99 and the 32 gigabyte iPhone 6s Plus for only $444.99.
At the start of this year, Huawei has reason to be unhappy. It was hoping to partner with major US wireless carrier AT&T in pushing its flagship devices to American mobile users this year, but the second biggest mobile operator in the country has since backed out of the deal.
