AT&T Prepaid Buyer’s Guide (May 2019)

Many of you are likely familiar with the so-called “Big Four” wireless service providers of Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. A lot of people might assume that this is pretty much all there is when it comes to carrier choice in the US. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Most of the top-tier carriers offer their own prepaid services with different rate plans, phone selection, and support. Let’s take a look at one of them in particular: AT&T Prepaid.

AT&T 5G plans may have tiered prices based on speed

Although AT&T’s next-gen 5G network is already available in some 19 markets across the country, the carrier still hasn’t decided how it plans to offer the service. At least in terms of phones, that is. Currently, the only choice for access is an expensive mobile hotspot from Netgear.

Forgetting, for a moment, about the 5GE stuff that’s showing up on existing phones, the true 5G network is the focus here. As such, it doesn’t seem quite like AT&T is ready  [Read More…]

AT&T Prepaid doubles data allotment for limited time

AT&T Prepaid recently began a new, limited-time promotion which sees its customers getting twice as much data for the money.

The $ 40 rate plan, which normally offers users 8GB of data, now gives them 16GB per month. The price stays the same, it’s just double the data for the mid-range prepaid plan.

In order to take advantage of the plan, AT&T Prepaid subscribers must sign up for the $ 50 plan with AutoPay automatic bill payment.

In essence, it’s  [Read More…]

AT&T launches mobile 5G in another seven cities ahead of first capable phone

AT&T on Tuesday announced it has launched mobile 5G service in another seven markets, bringing the total to 19 cities.

Although it was the first US carrier to introduce 5G wireless service in late 2018, AT&T has yet to carry a phone with support. It does have the NETGEAR Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot you can pick up for $ 500 but that’s it for now. And, from what we gather, it’s not as if AT&T is anxious to sell you  [Read More…]

AT&T is being sued by Sprint for falsely advertising 5G on its phones

The 5G Evolution drama continues.

In late December last year, AT&T announced that it was starting to put “5GE” indicators on some of its phones in areas where subscribers are using its upgraded LTE network. The speeds on the upgraded network are faster than regular LTE, but it’s still not true 5G.

Not being too keen about this trickery, Sprint’s decided to issue a lawsuit against AT&T.

Per part of the lawsuit:

AT&T has employed numerous deceptive  [Read More…]

AT&T has launched 5G in parts of the U.S. Here’s why it’s a big deal

More beta than must-have, but it’s still an important step.

I remember the first LTE products; they weren’t phones but big, bulky Wi-Fi hotspots with tiny displays that terminated in USB-A connections. They’d plug into laptops so give them internet access, magically, and used giant SIM cards that seemed to take up the entire length of the stick.

Well, here we are at the launch of 5G and things aren’t looking that different. Today, AT&T has announced  [Read More…]

Samsung will make two 5G phones for AT&T in 2019

If you build it, they will come.

We know that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 will be the first commercial chip to support multi-gigabit 5G connectivity and that AT&T has big plans for a nationwide 5G network that uses both 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz frequencies, so all that’s left are the phones. A 5G network will be useless without products to use it, and as expected Samsung is one of the first manufacturers AT&T has tapped to  [Read More…]
