AT&T might start charging customers to keep their data private

AT&T Internet Privacy Charge

“Nice internet privacy you’ve got there! It'd be a shame if something bad were to happen to it.”

That’s the kind of line you’d expect in a mob movie from a thug looking for his weekly fee for protecting your privacy. In real life, AT&T can't be quite so conspicuous, but that's basically what the mobile carrier is considering doing, based on a recent interview with one of the executives on C-SPAN.

AT&T promises massive broadband investment if Trump gives it tax breaks

AT&T broadband investment Trump meeting

There's a tired old trick for internet service providers that want a tax break to continue gouging customers. The ISP will make some vague promise of future broadband investment, in return for immediate tax breaks or approval of an industry deal. On the surface, it sounds good: delivering broadband to rural areas is often uneconomic, so government often wants to cut a deal with private industry to deliver it.

But the problem is that internet providers seem to have a really tricky time keeping to their promises, and unexpected roadblocks just happen to always spring up right around the time the investment is meant to happen.

That's why AT&T's promise to President Trump that it ill invest $22 billion in new infrastructure -- in return for immediate tax cuts -- is so terribly worrying.

AT&T is basically giving away cable TV to wireless customers

AT&T DirecTV Now Deals

Late last year, AT&T launched DirecTV Now, a $35 streaming alternative to regular cable TV. In many ways, it's a standard cable TV package, but you watch it on a phone or a Chromecast, rather than a cable TV box.

Even though $35 is less than most cheap cable packages, it's still a whole bunch more money than avocado-eating millennials are used to spending on their Netflix subscription. Signups for the service clearly haven't been as high as AT&T would like, as it's been pushing promotions like free Apple TVs and a year of complimentary HBO ever since launch. Starting today there's a new promotion for AT&T's wireless customers, and it's pretty hard to beat.

A few lucky cities will get AT&T’s 5G network by the end of the year

5G vs 4G

I still can't get a good LTE signal in my kitchen, but that's not stopping the wireless networks fearlessly powering into the future. AT&T has announced plans for rolling out "5G Evolution," a beta version of the 5G standard, to 20 metro areas by the end of 2017.

AT&T Launches Fake 5G Network in Desperate Attempt to Seem Innovative

Have you heard? AT&T is going to “pave the way for the next generation of faster speeds” with something called 5G Evolution. No, it’s not actually a new 5G network, the much hyped successor to 4G that’s supposed to change the way we connect to the internet. It’s just a re-branded 4G offering, and AT&T’s sad attempt at…

Nearly blind runner competes in Boston Marathon with help of digital eyes

accessibility tech

Marathon runner Erich Manser competed in his eighth Boston Marathon this year, but with each passing year he's able to see less and less of the actual event. Manser has a degenerative eye disease that has caused him to slowly go blind since he was a child. It makes the prospect of running through crowded streets even more of a challenge than it already is, but this year Manser had a bit of high-tech help to guide him. It's a visual interpretation service called Aira and the app, in partnership with AT&T, were able to give the nearly blind marathoner real-time guidance as he cruised to the finish line.

T-Mobile got an amazing deal on its $8 billion spectrum haul

T-Mobile spectrum vs AT&T, Verizon

Last week, the results of a hugely important Federal Communications Commission auction came out. The Commission was selling the rights to use re-purposed TV spectrum to wireless carriers, and T-Mobile spent $8 billion to buy far more spectrum than anyone else.

The spectrum being auctioned is particularly valuable low-band airwaves that work better in rural areas and indoors -- two areas that T-Mobile has struggled with, compared to Verizon, which has long held the licenses to a large amount of low-band spectrum.

AT&T just made a $1.25 billion bet on 5G

AT&T 5G release date

5G connectivity is coming, which is good news for anyone who's ever wanted to stream multiple things in 4K while sitting in a treehouse. All the major mobile companies are currently jockeying for position as to who gets to post "First!" in the comments section, and AT&T just put the stakes up.

AT&T spent $1.25 billion to acquire Straight Path Communications, a company that holds significant wireless spectrum that could be used for 5G. AT&T made the deal using all stock, meaning it hasn't had to deplete cash reserves, but don't let that fool you: this is a significant investment in wireless technology for the company.
