Unimpressed by Uncarrier, T-Mobile fans force data backtrack

Just recently, T-Mobile announced its new ONE plan, which claimed to give unlimited data to all of its postpaid subscribers through one plan. Of course, there were some problems with this plan, in that it downgraded video streams to 480p, requiring those who wanted to stream in higher resolutions to shell out an extra $25 per line. That apparently didn't sit well with some T-Mobile customers, and prompted by that feedback, T-Mobile has announced some add-ons that might bring more value to that $25 monthly charge.

Apple and Google team up with FCC to fight robocalls

Remember back in July when we told you that the FCC had called on carriers and device makers to help in the fight against robocalls? You'd be forgiven if you thought nothing would come of the FCC's urging, but the very next day, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said he was ready to lead a "strike force" to help the FCC put an end to the robocall problem. It turns out that strike force is real and it had meeting with the FCC today, kicking off its efforts to make robocalls a thing of the past.

T-Mobile has announced Un-Carrier 12, and it's a big one.

HTC 10 apparently dropped by T-Mobile back in July

HTC just can't seem to catch a break, at least not in the smartphone industry. And it's not for the lack of trying. The HTC 10 is arguably one of the better flagship devices this year, and yet it isn't doing wonders for HTC's coffers. And not for T-Mobile either. Apparently, the carrier has stopped offering the HTC 10 almost a month ago, which means that it only carried the smartphone a little less than two months after it launched.

Average US internet speeds make significant rise in first half of 2016

However, a new report from Ookla is showing us that the wider availability of fiber options may just be a good thing for those with fixed broadband connections, as average broadband speeds have taken a rather large jump year-over-year in the first half of 2016.

Domino’s drops T-Mobile’s free pizza promo as stores struggle to keep up

Domino's has decided to back out of T-Mobile’s free pizza promotion due to overwhelming demand from the carrier’s users. The pizza was offered as a promotion in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, but wasn’t adequately limited in number or on a per-account basis, leading to massive Domino's orders. This demand overwhelmed the pizza stores so greatly that the company has already pulled the plug, likely to the relief of many Domino's workers.
