AT&T and Comcast lobby to kill more competition in Tennessee

AT&T Comcast Tennessee Municipal Broadband

You know what incumbent Internet service providers don't like? That's right: Competition. They especially don't like it when that competition comes in the form of government-funded municipal broadband projects like the one that's been a big success in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The good news for incumbent ISPs about such municipal broadband projects, however, is they can be constrained or shut down with the help of effective lobbying operations.

In case you don't know, Comcast and AT&T have very effective lobbying operations.

You can already get a Galaxy S7 for free

Free Galaxy S7

"Buy one get one" sales at carriers are very common. They're great for promoting sales of smartphones as they grow a bit long in the tooth, or in the event that sales start to slow. For example, AT&T is currently offering a BOGO sale on the iPhone 6, which launched last September and, according to a number of estimates, is in the midst of a quicker-than-normal slowdown.

What isn't nearly as common, however, is seeing a carrier offer a flagship smartphone for free when it hasn't even launched yet.

Verizon promo offering free 24GB/year, AT&T pushing BOGO iPhone deal

Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 1.36.27 PM

Verizon today has announced the return of its popular promo that offers users an extra 24GB of data per year for free. The deal is available to users who activate or upgrade to a new phone with a device payment plan on XL or larger Verizon agreements. Verizon’s XL plan starts at $80 per month with 12GB of data (14GB if you include the promo), while the XXL plan runs $100 per month for 18GB of data (20GB with the promo).

Every line on the account is eligible for the deal, which means that if you have four lines on your account, you’ll be getting an extra 96GB of data per year. Verizon touts that the promo runs “for life,” so there’s no need to worry about the carrier abruptly ending the deal and having to worry about managing with less data every month.

The added data is applied on a per-month basis, so you’ll get 2GB of extra usage per line every month. The data simply goes into the pool of data that you already get for your account, meaning that all devices can use the added data.

Whether you’re an existing customer or switching over from another provider with a poor network, you’ll receive 24 GB of bonus data every year when you upgrade or activate a new phone with device payment on XL or larger Verizon Plans. Available for a limited time, the 24 GB of bonus data is added as 2 GB of monthly bonus data and is shareable.

Furthermore, AT&T announced this week that it is offering up to $650 in credits per line to help you switch from a competing carrier. The company details the process in its blog post, noting that you have to switch your line to AT&T, trade-in your current smartphone, and purchase a new one on AT&T Next. Verizon announced a similar deal back in December.

AT&T also continues to push that it is offering a buy-one-get-one-free promo for iPhone purchases. For a limited time, customers who purchase one iPhone can get another one free when adding a second line. The company originally revealed this deal in December, but only now has it started advertising that the iPhone is eligible.

AT&T CEO calls for Congress to decide on encryption policy, says it’s not Tim Cook’s decision

Randall-punch-tim-cookAT&T CEO Randall Stephenson is the latest to weigh in on the issue of data encryption policy with the executive telling The Wall Street Journal that Apple CEO Tim Cook and other tech execs should leave the decision making on encryption policy up to Congress:

“I don’t think it is Silicon Valley’s decision to make about whether encryption is the right thing to do. I understand Tim Cook’s decision, but I don’t think it’s his decision to make”… I personally think that this is an issue that should be decided by the American people and Congress, not by companies,”

…The AT&T chief said his own company has been unfairly singled out in the debate over access to data. “It is silliness to say there’s some kind of conspiracy between the U.S. government and AT&T,” he said, adding that the company turns over information only when accompanied by a warrant or court order.

That statement follows a meeting among Cook, other Silicon Valley executives and White House officials last week to discuss topics related to encryption policies and government access to data.

And that’s just the latest occasion in which Apple under Tim Cook’s leadership has voiced its opinion on the issue with the company becoming increasingly vocal about its stance on encryption and sharing user data with others.

But the issue is once again in the spotlight as it becomes a topic of interest during recent presidential debates. Tech companies and government access to data was one focus at the Democratic debate this week, and just days earlier Apple and Tim Cook were mentioned by name during the Republican presidential debate with candidates asked specifically about Cook’s position on keeping user data private from government.

Recent legislation proposed in at least two states — New York and California — looks to ban iPhone sales if Apple won’t compromise on encryption, which shows you just how heated the debate has gotten.

AT&T brings back unlimited data plans, but there are some major catches …

Noblex

If you’re feeling jealous of any friends grandfathered into an existing AT&T unlimited data plan (especially since ‘unlimited’ was redefined from ‘5GB before throttling kicks in’ to ’22GB before throttling if congested’), the company has good news: it is  launching a brand new version of unlimited data tomorrow.

Pricing starts at $100/month for a single line, plus $40 for each individual line. Unfortunately, there’s bad news too. As The Verge notes, there are some pretty big catches – the biggest of which is that you need to be a DirecTV or U-Verse subscriber to even  be eligible, which of course adds to the cost if you don’t already have a subscription …

It’s clear where the company is going here: it’s leveraging its new DirecTV acquisition and existing U-verse TV services to promote video streaming on the go. While the plan itself doesn’t bundle in specific home TV packages, it’s designed to work hand-in-hand with DirecTV and U-verse’s out-of-home streaming apps. It just so happens that watching lots of video quickly burns up your data allowance — and AT&T’s more than happy to offer an unlimited plan to fix that problem.

The plan is also limited to smartphones. If you want to use it on your iPad, you’ll need to fork out a further $40/month to add a tablet so this plan can quickly get pricey.

If you want the plan but don’t currently have a qualifying TV subscription, the cheapest deal is a DirecTV package at $19.99/month. Alternatively, if you’re racking up the data mostly from streaming video, you may want to check out T-Mobile’s Binge On program, which doesn’t count data usage from a growing number of streaming video services.
