AT&T now has a bad version of T-Mobile’s unlimited Netflix plan

AT&T Stream Saver
One of T-Mobile's headline features in its self-titled "war on cell carriers" is the Binge On feature, which allows you unlimited video streaming from most services like Netflix and YouTube. The tradeoff is that the video only streams in standard definition, rather than HD. AT&T has decided to copy Binge On with a new program called Stream Saver -- only, it's missing the most important (and alluring) part of the Binge On deal.

Netflix’s CEO is worried about what AT&T’s merger means for the internet

Netflix data usage
Netflix and AT&T/Time Warner are set to go to war. Fresh from its $80 billion takeover of Time Warner, AT&T has announced an internet-only streaming service, DirecTV, that is aimed squarely at Netflix subscribers. That would always be seen as a threat by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. But after AT&T's takeover of Time Warner, the company now owns big-name content producers like HBO and CNN, and the internet pipes that deliver those to the consumer. That's a dangerous combination.

AT&T Acquires Time Warner
Following numerous reports of an imminent deal, AT&T on Saturday night announced that it plans to acquire media giant Time Warner for $107.50 per share, or $85 billion. The deal, which represents a healthy premium over Time Warner's $89.48 closing price on Friday, includes cash and stock and will be financed in part by a $40 billion loan. Should the deal be approved by regulators, AT&T will take control of HBO, CNN, TNT, Warner Bros. studio and the rest of Time Warner's assets.

US carriers stopped Galaxy Note 7 sales even before Samsung pulled the plug

Galaxy Note 7 Explosions Fires
The Galaxy Note 7 is not cancelled, at least not yet. Samsung decided to suspend production to investigate new explosion reports further, but there’s no official decision to terminate the smartphone. However, US carriers confirmed they will not continue to sell the phone in stores, or offer “safe” replacements to customers for the time being. Galaxy Note 7 buyers can still exchange their phones, whether they’re faulty or “safe,” for a different device of their choosing.

AT&T did something nice for a change

AT&T Internet Cap
I see you reaching for your calendar, but it's true: this is not April 1st, and the story is not a joke. A large internet service provider in the USA voluntarily did something that benefits its customers and (temporarily) hurts its bottom line. Starting on August 21st, AT&T will be increasing the data cap for home internet users on U-Verse and GigaPower plans. I have not yet found the catch, but I'm still looking.

T-Mobile isn’t the best wireless network, according to the people

Best Cell Phone Service 2016
T-Mobile has the cheapest prices and best perks in the industry, and certainly the most sweary executive. But for one of the things that matters most to customers -- good customer care -- AT&T actually pips the "Uncarrier" to the flag. The latest edition of the J.D. Power satisfaction survey ranks AT&T as the network with the best overall customer care experience. T-Mobile finishes second, with Verizon and Sprint rounding out the best of the rest.
