Spotify and AT&T team to challenge Verizon and Apple Music

Spotify and AT&T team to challenge Verizon and Apple Music

Last week, Verizon announced a collection of new unlimited plans. Though the four new unlimited plans differ in what they offer, all of them have a subscription to Apple Music tossed in as one of the perks.

DISH as Wireless Carrier: What’s that mean for me and 5G?

Today DISH stood to gain in a BIG way thanks to the merger between Sprint and T-Mobile USA approved by the United States Department of Justice.

Four US carriers sued for selling location data to third-parties

2018 was a big year for privacy and not in a good way. It was a year where privacy violations were exposed left and right and not all of them involved Facebook. Just as scandalous was the revelation that the four major US carriers have, at one point or another, sold their customer's location data to third-parties, which then ended up with bounty hunters and illegal users. Although AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon have promised to stop that practice, customers are still taking them to court for it.

AT&T 5G plans could price for speed, not data

AT&T's 5G service may be split into speed tiers rather than priced by data caps, with the carrier's CEO arguing that the same strategy which has worked in fixed line broadband could prove equally successful - and, for AT&T, lucrative - for next-generation wireless. The carrier is preparing to launch its 5G service for consumers, having paved the way with controversial "5G E" branding for its so-called "5G Evolution" network.
