How To Stop Spam Calls

AT&T and Comcast are actually working together to stop robocalls

March 20th, 2019

It’s been said that war makes strange bedfellows, and now we can say the same thing about the out-of-control problem of robocalls and spam calls that bombard all of our phones day-in, day-out. Normally, AT&T and Comcast are competing telecommunications giants, but in the case of the anti-robocall fight, they’ve come together to announce what …


Even AT&T knows that its 5G E icon is misleading

February 19th, 2019

AT&T over the past few weeks has been on the receiving end of a lot of well-deserved criticism regarding its use of a 5G E symbol on phones that don’t actually support 5G. As you may recall, the 5G E symbol will appear on both Android and iOS devices that happen to be in areas …

Even though the roll out of 5G smartphones hasn’t begun, AT&T has decided to replace the 4G icon on select devices with a 5G E symbol in areas with support for AT&T’s fastest LTE technologies. AT&T has been widely criticized for its 5G E tactic, but there’s no indication that the company cares or is even …

January 9th, 2019

One day after Verizon took out a full-page ad in newspapers like The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal to subtly blast AT&T for an arguably shady 5G strategy, an executive from AT&T — which rivals say has essentially been trying to pass off 4G service as 5G — has pushed back against …

Verizon Vs AT&T

Verizon calls out AT&T’s shady 5G strategy in new full-page ad

January 8th, 2019

Verizon earlier today took out full-page ads in papers like The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and called upon the wireless industry to be upfront with consumers about which devices are truly 5G compatible. The Verizon ad is essentially a not-too-subtle jab at AT&T which, as we reported a few weeks back, is …

AT&T 5G Speed Test

AT&T’s 5G network speeds feel a lot like 4G LTE right now

January 1st, 2019

The first mobile 5G networks are already here, but there’s no reason whatsoever to get excited right now. Carriers are making a big deal about the new telecom standard, but we’re probably still a few years away from experiencing decent 5G coverage, and there’s no telling when consistent data speeds worth of the 5G moniker …
