Just a few days ago, Verizon Wirelessannounced that they would be offering a new unlimited data plan. Shortly after, T-Mobile responded by adjusting its unlimited plan so it could keep up with what Verizon was offering. Sprint didn't take too long to join in on the trend by improving the unlimited data plan it was already offering. So where does that leave AT&T?
AT&T has announced this week that it is planning to introduce its first 5G wireless service in the next few months in the United States mobile market, particularly in the cities of Austin in Texas and Indianapolis in Indiana. On top of that, the second biggest wireless carrier in America is also looking to set up a couple of new 5G test beds that should launch in spring of this year at the AT&T Labs also located in Austin.
Here is some good news for customers under AT&T’s prepaid brand -- Cricket Wireless has decided to boost the data cap on its $50 a month plan. From 5 gigabytes of data, mobile users now get to enjoy 8 gigabytes of data monthly. Also, the mobile operator has also done well to make the $50 a month plan a permanent option, instead of remaining as a special offer previously.
T-Mobile is at it again. The third biggest wireless carrier in the United States is once again launching a new promotional deal that takes a dig at AT&T’s DirecTV Now service. This time around, T-Mobile is offering a whole year’s subscription to Hulu absolutely free of charge to former AT&T users who have switched to T-Mobile.
AT&T has no shortage of international roaming plans. But for its subscribers who frequently travel to other countries, they have plenty of reason to want a little more than what the major US wireless carrier is currently offering.
Just like Verizon Wireless, the second biggest wireless carrier in America has decided to increase its activation and upgrade fees. According to a report published by Droid Life, AT&T has hiked the charge for activating or upgrading a device on its network from the previous $20 to $25.
This piece of news may not be welcome for those owning the original iPhone or the BlackBerry Pearl. AT&T has confirmed that it has indeed discontinued its 2G services as of January 1st of this year. To its credit, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States did promise more than four years ago that it would do so. Well now, it has been made official.
It is not just Verizon Wireless subscribers getting some bit of unpleasant news today. For those currently subscribing to AT&T, know that the wireless carrier has decided to increase the prices of its legacy unlimited data plans by $5 a month.
AT&T is launching a new special offer for new and existing subscribers this week, specifically a buy one get one promo on the major US wireless carrier’s best selling mobile devices. In this deal, customers who decide to purchase a brand new smartphone will get another device and only get to pay for one unit. This offer is good until December 24th.
