AT&T tries to buy loyalty after T-Mobile barbs

AT&T has ramped up its retaliation against T-Mobile, responding to criticisms that it was not doing enough for existing subscribers by offering them a new credit to avoid them jumping ship to the magenta upstart. The carrier will slap $100 in credit onto the monthly bill of any new or existing customer who activates a new line of service on their account, whether that be for a phone, tablet, hotspot, or wireless home line.

T-Mobile raises anti-AT&T attacks to bizarre levels

T-Mobile has cranked up its offensive against AT&T, issuing a bizarrely tongue-in-cheek press release fabricating quotes from AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega as it snipes at its rival's $450 "buy back" campaign to get former subscribers to return.

The folks at AT&T responsible for releasing information about this device suggest that there's a few oddities on this device that aren't there for the international version, namely AT&T apps, but also a set of powerful components that make this release just as powerful as any other iteration released nationally or internationally.

T-Mobile: Our LTE is faster, and AT&T needs to stop saying otherwise

T-Mobile has been talking Wideband LTE at CES, with early trials showing 147 Mbps downloads, while real-time tests of the carrier's existing 4G network are already out-performing AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. The carrier is using Speedtest.net results for a more timely indication of how T-Mobile's 4G compares to that of rivals. Meanwhile CEO John Legere ramped up his war with AT&T with the promise of a Cease & Desist letter.
