FCC marches on with open internet rules, AT&T stay denied

AT&T and fellow telecom companies are trying to prevent the FCC from rolling out new Net Neutrality rules. The telecom companies' latest strategy to slow down the new regulation process from taking effect was to request a stay, which would delay the reclassification of internet as a public utility. The court officially denied the stay in its latest ruling. The telecom companies claimed that because they didn't seek a say request against the three "bright-line" internet rules from the FCC's new Internet regulation, (no throttling, no paid prioritization, and no obstruction of legal content) their stay would not harm the public interest. Yet, the court failed to agree.

AT&T changes conditions for throttling grandfathered unlimited data users

AT&T changes conditions for throttling grandfathered unlimited data users

Nationwide carrier AT&T made a quiet revision to one of its policies this week over how it treats customers with grandfathered smartphone plans for unlimited data. Previously, those users had their data speeds throttled after exceeding either 5 gigabytes of LTE data or 3 gigabytes of 3G data within a month. The carrier would reduce customers' data speeds regardless of how congested the network was at those times. AT&T's revised policy now states in will only throttle unlimited data users during times or places with high network congestion.

AT&T changes stance on hard throttling for users of unlimited data plans

In the early days of the smartphone when the original iPhone launched, you could get actual unlimited data plans with the device. As time went on AT&T and other carriers began to put limits on the "unlimited" plans much to the anger of their customers. If you are on one of those old grandfathered unlimited data plans, you know that the way AT&T tries to keep you from using what you pay for is by throttling your speed.

AT&T hits dial-up subscriber with $24,000 bill

AT&T hits dial-up subscriber with $24,000 bill

We hear stories every now and then about surprised parents who discover their children amassed large bills through excessive text messages or data usage or "free" games. The latest story of an egregious bill to surface is quite the opposite, however: an elderly AT&T subscriber says he was hit with a bill for more than $24,000 USD from the company over his landline, which typically cost $51 per month. The landline was used to access AOL dial-up (yes, people still use this), and the company reportedly told him he had to pay it.

ZTE Spro 2 Smart Projector hands-on

ZTE Spro 2 Smart Projector hands-on

This week at IFA 2015 we've been given the opportunity to get some hands-on time with the ZTE Spro 2 Smart Projector. This device is a "2-in-1" projector with the ability to project AND use the device as a mobile hotspot. It runs Android and works with 200-lumens of light for projecting, and - like any good Android device - it's able to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot at the same time. This double-use device is as interesting as it is strange, that's for certain.

ZTE Spro 2 Android smart projector arrives in US at AT&T

During CES 2015, ZTE introduced a smart projector running Android called the Spro 2, and it is now arriving to buyers in the United States via AT&T. The device is a 2-in-1 projector that includes hotspot features and the ability to connect to a WiFi network, as well as an Android touchscreen built into the device. There are HDMI ports, as well, for connecting devices, but it can be used completely independently of a laptop or such by accessing content through the Android interface and streaming it over Wi-Fi or a 4G LTE network.

US carriers are stripping down the Galaxy S6 even further

US carriers are stripping down the Galaxy S6 even further

Samsung's phones are notorious for the amount of bloatware they come with, exacerbated by carriers' own bloatware on top. For this round, however, Samsung was noted to have put the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge on a software diet. Well, as much as it can concede. It still has some, of course, but not exactly as bad as before. US carriers seem to also be getting into the rhythm. It's not exactly surprising to hear that carriers are modifying their versions of the Galaxy S6, but some of the changes are rather puzzling at times.
