ISPs promise not to sell customers’ personal browsing history

ISPs promise not to sell customers’ personal browsing history

As you've likely heard by now, Congress voted earlier this week to reverse FCC rules that prevented internet service providers from selling personal customer data like browsing history. Understandably, many Americans are upset by this. Now several ISPs like Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon are getting proactive in reassuring customers that their privacy matters, releasing statements that say they will not be selling users' internet browsing data.

AT&T launches unlimited data on prepaid plans, but prepare to be disappointed

AT&T launches unlimited data on prepaid plans, but prepare to be disappointed

This whole unlimited data renaissance we're having is pretty neat, isn't it? At the beginning of the year, Sprint and T-Mobile were the only two carriers offering unlimited data, but now you can get an unlimited data plan from any of the big four. The only problem is that you (generally) need to be on a post-paid plan to get unlimited data, which means that prepaid users are being left out in the cold.

AT&T tweaks unlimited data plan after realizing it’s the worst

The unlimited data war rages on, and today we're seeing AT&T tweak its unlimited data offerings to better compete with Verizon and T-Mobile. Like the rest of the big four, AT&T was quick to roll out a new unlimited data plan after Verizon announced one of its own. The only problem was that AT&T's plan was clearly the worst, asking for more money than Verizon and T-Mobile while leaving out important features like tethering and mobile hotspot.

Unlimited Data plans from Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: a brief review

In a matter of just a few days, we've gone from two major US carriers offering unlimited data plans to all four.

This time around, though, these plans come with a lot of caveats, and it can be hard to keep things straight between AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

FCC drops net neutrality investigations into AT&T, Verizon

FCC drops net neutrality investigations into AT&T, Verizon

Right through December of last year, the FCC had ongoing investigations into telecom giants including AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile over their use of zero-rated data services, viewing them anti-competitive and in violation of net neutrality rules. Unfortunately, these investigations were opened under outgoing FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, and part of President Trump's restaffing has been appointing Ajit Pai as the new head. In turn, the agency has also revealed that it's dropping the investigations.

T-Mobile gives AT&T transplants a free year of Hulu

T-Mobile gives AT&T transplants a free year of Hulu

A few weeks back, T-Mobile announced a new scheme to tempt mobile customers away from AT&T by paying for a year of DirecTV NOW through a series of bill credits. This gave those customers one of the perks of an AT&T plan without actually having to deal with AT&T. T-Mobile just decided to sweeten the pot a bit, announcing that those who switched from AT&T for the DirecTV NOW promotion are also eligible to receive a free year of Hulu as well.

FCC says AT&T, Verizon are violating net neutrality with sponsored data plans

This week the FCC sent letters to both AT&T and Verizon, stating that zero-rated data — plans and services that don't count against users' monthly allotment — is a violation of net neutrality rules. For AT&T, this applies to their new DirecTV Now streaming video service, and for Verizon it's their own Go90 video service. The FCC's wireless communications chief Jon Wilkins wrote that the telecoms' practices "inhibit competition, harm consumers, and interfere with the ‘virtuous cycle’ needed to assure the continuing benefits of the Open Internet."

AT&T might permanently drop Galaxy Note 7 sales

This year's exploding Galaxy Note 7 debacle shows no signs of slowing down after this week's news that a Samsung-approved post-recall model still managed to catch fire while on an airplane, despite being turned off. This device and its massive recall campaign have been a headache for US carriers, but while most have re-started sales of replacement models, AT&T is thinking it might not even bother, and drop the Galaxy Note 7 from its lineup altogether.
