DirecTV to offer Internet streaming option, no satellite needed

AT&T has announced plans to diversify DirecTV access, soon allowing subscribers to stream content over the Internet regardless of ISP and using nearly whatever Internet device they want. This will be made available under three soon-to-launch video offerings, and will not fall under any contracts, nor will it require a set-top box or a satellite dish. The trio of plans will launch some time in the fourth quarter of this year.

What you really need to know about AT&T 5G

Movie downloads in seconds, lag-free streaming in 4K resolution, and an altogether snappier experience on your iPhone or Android: 5G certainly promises a lot.

AT&T gets its 5G gear ready for testing this year

Our data networks will soon be even more crowded and congested. There was already a surge in data usage the past few years, thanks primarily to smartphones and tablets. In the upcoming years, not only will the number of devices connected to the Internet rise thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), the volume of traffic will also increase due to 4K videos and virtual reality. To prepare for all of that mess, carriers are plotting their next gen network technologies. AT&T, for its part, will be putting its eggs in the 5G basket and will start its testing phase this year.

Verizon baits switchers with $650 per line

Verizon baits switchers with $650 per line

This morning we received an ugly Christmas sweater in the mail from Verizon to announce $650 in contract-ending switch cash. Weird. "Everyone has that one gift they'd like to like to exchange for something better: maybe that not-so-cool holiday sweater... or the wrong network." Clever. So Verizon has this deal for people who use a different carrier for their smartphone and want to switch, giving them "up to" $650 USD per line in the process.

AT&T to bring its Fiber-enriched GigaPower to 38 more cities

Lately, Google has been trying to take a bite out of the carrier business pie, and now carriers are trying to bite it back. For example, Verizon's LTE-U push, which is being contested by the likes of Google, is, in a way, trying to cut into Google's Wi-Fi offering. Now AT&T is now also trying to give Google a taste of its own medicine, by announcing its plans to extend its "100% Fiber" GigaPower service to 38 more metros, particularly in locations that Google Fiber has yet to reach.

AT&T grandfathered unlimited plans pricing hike incoming [UPDATE]

AT&T grandfathered unlimited plans pricing hike incoming [UPDATE]

The release date for the increase of prices for AT&T's grandfathered Unlimited Data plans has struck - coming your way this February. At that time, AT&T will hike the price from $30 for an unlimited data plan - which is insane by today's standards - to $35 USD. SO it's not so terrible. For now. This keeps AT&T's prices below the hikes of their main competition, with Verizon's still at $49 a month and T-Mobile's at $45. Then there's the throttling. Always with the throttling.
