AT&T faces lawsuit over bogus ‘administrative fee’ hiding in its service plans

AT&T recently made the headlines for some misleading business concerning its 5G network — in essence, it added a 5GE indicator on devices that don't actually support 5G. Even a lawsuit from Sprint couldn't stop the company. Now, another complaint is on its way to the carrier, this time from its customers. They are accusing AT&T of charging a monthly $1.99 "bogus Administrative Fee" that it doesn't properly disclose in its rates.

AT&T crowned fastest LTE network in PCMag's 2019 tests

We've all rightly mocked AT&T for its ridiculous "5GE" branding, but the network improvements under that poorly named umbrella are having a real impact. According to PCMag's new mobile network tests, AT&T has surpassed Verizon to become the fastest network in the US. This is the first time AT&T has won in six years, which was way back in the early days of LTE.

AT&T just launched the Galaxy S10 5G — but you probably can't buy it

It's easy to forget, but AT&T has technically had a 5G network since late last year. It just won't let almost anyone use it. That trend continues with the carrier's latest phone launch. The Galaxy S10 5G will go on sale June 17th, but only businesses and developers can buy it.

LG V40 ThinQ receives Android Pie on AT&T

LG has only recently released its newest flagship, the V40 ThinQ. While the device offers some generous specs, including a Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, and a triple camera setup, it sadly lacked the latest version of Android when it was launched back in October 2018. This started to change in May as the phone received Pie on Verizon. Now, V40 users on AT&T can look forward to the same update, with the OTA rolling out after slowly trickling down to some users over the past few days.

AT&T starts open enrollment on phone insurance plans for prepaid customers

If you break phones the same way you breathe air — as in you do it very often — having an insurance plan for your device might make sense to you. Manufacturers might offer policies, though most customers will go to their carriers... well, postpaid customers anyways. Prepaid customers haven't had much of an option in that aspect until when AT&T, with its partner Asurion, began offering its Mobile Protection plan back in April. This month, the carrier is working on boosting customer buy-in by offering open enrollment.

AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile clean up with big 5G spectrum acquisitions in latest FCC auctions

The rise of 5G is exciting, but taking full advantage of its potential is going to require carriers to expand their coverage into new parts of the RF spectrum. The FCC has been auctioning off the rights to some of these frequencies and has just completed the process for the 24GHz band while also announcing the winners of its 28GHz band auction. As was expected from the outset, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon were the largest bidders and winners of the processes.

AT&T will pull content from Netflix and Hulu when it launches its streaming service

You know how you've been hoping for more streaming services to further silo content and force you to pay more money? Well, AT&T is happy to oblige, sucker. The company has been angling to launch its own streaming service using all the content it picked up in the recent Time Warner deal. CEO Randall Stephenson now confirms this will spell the end of AT&T-owned content on other streaming services.
