AT&T Inc is expected to soon present a proposed solution to U.S. antitrust regulators to salvage its planned $39 billion acquisition of smaller rival T-Mobile USA, according to people close to the matter.
AT&T is changing up its data plans again. And it smells like a good deal. Here's what's going on. Starting this Sunday, customers have the option to move to a new type of plan called the Mobile Share Value Plan. This plan effectively separates the cost of your smartphone and your wireless service plan and saves you $15 per month if you've paid off your phone.
As competition in the wireless industry intensifies, wireless carriers have either been making changes to their existing plans or launching new ones, as they vie to attract subscribers. But, with a plethora of new promotions claiming to offer the “best value,” and an already large number of competing data plans to choose from, consumers have been left confused.
Depending on your habits and personality, you may not need to make a lot of actual phone calls using your smartphone. If you find that you don’t use your phone as a phone all that much, you can save quite a bit of money by taking advantage of a set of mobile plans originally designed for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
