We need them the most during emergencies like approaching bad weather, And that’s why cellular providers like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint have recently spent hundreds of millions of dollars improving their networks and set-up virtual emergency operations’ bunkers for all their back-up systems.
You’d think a big company like T-Mobile would be smarter than to thank a brand new customer by giving him the former cellphone number of someone who canceled it because of all the hate calls it was getting. But T-Mobile did just that, when it handed out the phone number given up by George Zimmerman.
T-Mobile, the nation’s 4th largest wireless provider which has been struggling following a failed merger attempt with much larger AT&T, said it will close a number of call centers around the nation including one on Ft. Lauderdale. Nearly 500 jobs would be affected.
Get ready for a rate hike if you plan on becoming a new AT&T customer.
AT&T Inc. said Friday that it’s going to start limiting speeds for the 5 percent of its customers with “unlimited” data smartphone plans who clog the airwaves the most.
There will be fewer choices for South Florida cellphone users in the future, after AT&T Inc. made the surprise announcement Sunday it will buy T-Mobile USA for $39 billion.
