AT&T has some grand plans for its growing SDN-enabled network, one that will see the provider launch the new service in multiple countries in 2016.
AT&T's Ralph de la Vega said he is not concerned about the decline in the number of the carrier's postpaid phone customers because of the growth of AT&T's Cricket prepaid wireless business. And he said that AT&T has a significant cross-selling opportunity following its acquisition of pay-TV company DirecTV.
AT&T is may be keen on advancing its FTTH rollouts, but like any service provider the biggest potential obstacle that could get in its way is the local permitting process to install fiber to each premises.
AT&T today said that it will reduce the number of equipment installment plans (EIP) it offers from four to two. The two remaining plans, AT&T Next and AT&T Next Every Year, essentially will allow customers to upgrade to a new phone either every two years (Next) or ever year (Next Every Year).
Both CTIA and AT&T are proposing frameworks for sharing spectrum with satellite operators, but they're not the same framework.
Now that the first quarter 2016 earnings season is over, FierceWireless is sizing up how the largest wireless operators -- Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint-- performed.
In comments filed to the FCC, AT&T said the agency's proposed set-top regulations "bears no relationship" to mandates established by Section 629 of the Communications Act and is essentially a "radical unbundling scheme."
Now that the first-quarter earnings season is coming to a close, it's time to take stock and see how each of the major carriers performed. FierceWireless has compiled several reports from leading analysts to present an in-depth look at just how Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile US and Sprint each performed in the first quarter of 2016.
As AT&T continues to ramp up its FTTH deployments into new cities like San Jose, California, the service provider is finding that the best targets for 1 Gbps service exist in multi-dwelling units (MDUs).
AT&T and Sprint are hoping to boost second-quarter subscriber adds with new promotions continuing the buy-one, get-one theme.
