  • AT&T settles FTC data throttling case from 2014

    cpsro said:
    AT&T needs to stop throttling AT&T TV (nee DirecTV Now) video over cellular. For the past several months I rarely, if ever, got HD. Watching over AT&T cellular for free was a nice perk. They need to bring back HD or lose customers.
    Go into MyAT&T app and turn off StreamSaver on your account if it is on. That might help.

  • Apple to overtake Samsung in Q4 2021, 5G iPhone SE coming in 2022

    I’m absolutely buying the SE and dumping my 12 mini.

    I picked up my friends 2nd generation SE and it was so light, then and had Touch ID.
    much nicer then the mini which is HUGE and feels slow in comparison 

    I find it near impossible to believe that a 12 Mini feels slower than an SE.

    Agreed.  The iPhone 13 mini has 5G and the same processor as the bigger brothers.  Not sure what the problem is.   If you want a smaller phone, it seems like just the ticket.

  • AT&T & Verizon won't delay 5G rollout over aviation safety concerns

    What mystifies me is that the airlines are not saying (or the news media isn't reporting) what DATA they are seeing to warrant the delays.  It sounds like emotion and paranoia is guiding their actions and sadly, this has the desired effect on the public and elected officials.

    On the flip side, the telcos have DATA (actual test results) showing that little or no concern about interference exists.

  • iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro pre-order results beat iPhone 11 launch, Kuo says

    Of course AT&T wants more $$$ for adding 5G service, so they’re hoping to earn it back. 

    At least in the US, the carriers are being much more aggressive about subsidizing new phones for new and existing customers this time around.  I know nothing is truly "free" but in practical, dollar-and-cents many customers with a 3-year-old phone can trade it in (and re-up for 2.5 years) and get a free high-end phone.  That'll be great for Apple's bottom line.

    Where do you get that?  AT&T isn't charging any more on their plans for 5G access.
