HBO Max gets a free ride on AT&T but that may not be a good thing

HBO Max gets a free ride on AT&T but that may not be a good thing

HBO Max went live at the tail end of last month, and if you're an AT&T subscriber, you'll find that streaming content from the new service doesn't count against your data cap. Specifically, streaming HBO Max over AT&T's network won't count against typical data caps for those who are metered connections, and it also won't count against the quasi-data caps on unlimited plans, where crossing a certain data usage threshold will lead to a throttled connection but not a halt to data access entirely.

AT&T 5G Evolution marketing is going away but its 5G E icon will remain

AT&T 5G Evolution marketing is going away but its 5G E icon will remain

5G has been the battle cry of many network operators and device makers so it wasn't surprising to see carriers scrambling to promote their network as the 5G network to beat. More than two years ago, however, AT&T ruffled no small amount of feathers when it rolled out its "5G Evolution" advertising campaign and its accompanying "5G E" icon on phones. That has lead to formal complaints and now AT&T is being given a slap on the wrist though that decision may come too little too late to make a difference anyway.

Announced last month, the Android smartphone may be LG's 2020 flagship but it's not really priced that way, and the good news is that on some carriers the second screen attachment comes as standard.

AT&T data caps temporarily lifted to help COVID-19 countermeasures

Access to the Internet has proved to be more than just a luxury as cities or even whole countries lock themselves down to prevent the spread of the dreaded COVID-19 virus. Work and schools are moving their activities online and social media and messaging have become the only ways people can safely keep in touch. In the US, however, consumers are facing concerns that their increased Internet use may also increase their expenses. Fortunately for AT&T subscribers, that won't be the case, at least during the coronavirus crisis.

AT&T Pixel 4 March security update pulled for critical bug

Google has just released its regular monthly update to improve the security of its Pixel phones and Android in general. It even talked about in some detail the new security-unrelated features that the Pixel 4 will be receiving this month. Imagine, then, the confusion that some Pixel 4 owners received instead when the March update for AT&T was mysteriously yanked from the Internet. It turns out that Google may have missed a critical step that left some features like Google Pay broken on the carrier-locked phone.
