AT&T has been making headlines this week. The carrier wants to be more competitive with the soon to be giant made of T-Mobile and Sprint, as well as media giants like Netflix and Amazon. AT&T has made changes to its plans, and now customers of AT&T might be in for something big. According to Reuters, AT&T’s request of approval to buy Time Warner has been granted and the deal will close June 20, 2018.
It was confirmed near the end of last week that AT&T will be increasing the price one will pay for its old unlimited plan. Starting this July, an AT&T unlimited data plan will be $5 steeper per month. This isn’t a significant increase and while it won’t break the deal for many of you, it puts competitors in a better spot.
In early May, LG started what became flagship smartphone season with its G7 ThinQ. The handset is only now reaching markets around the world, yet LG unfolded a new flagship device just last week. LG V35 ThinQ starts shipping today and is exclusive to AT&T in the US. The phone features a lot of the same as G7 ThinQ, only with V-Series branding.
Of all the great Android smartphones out there, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to carry an unproven device that is a first from its company. We’re talking about the unreleased but long-awaited RED Hydrogen One said to be “holographic.” Perhaps carriers have seen something we have not.
Earlier today, we told you about AT&T’s upcoming TV streaming service AT&T Watch. The carrier also announced a slew of changes recently to its data plans that we want to keep you up to date on. There have been some upgrades to AT&T’s current data plans and there’s also now a new prepaid option. If you’re an AT&T subscriber or looking to sign up for wireless service, you don’t want to miss this.
In bizarre but good news that adds to today’s plan changes, AT&T’s CEO announced a brand new TV streaming service while testifying in court. The news first broke on Friday, presumably after the court session got out. The new streaming service is called ‘Watch’ and costs just $15 per month.
Don’t be so defensive about the word “change,” because this change is a good one if you’re an AT&T subscriber or thinking about switching to the US carrier some time soon. AT&T will soon apply changes to its data plans, more specifically its unlimited plans. Here are the details.
Leading up to CES 2018, many speculated that AT&T would be the first US carrier to supply a Huawei smartphone. This followed word from the manufacturer’s own CEO, who detailed that a US carrier would carry a Huawei flagship smartphone in 2018. Huawei held a press conference yesterday in Las Vegas, but instead of announcing US carrier support like most of us expected, the company simply talked about its plans for expanding to the US without a carrier’s involvement.
