AT&T to merge Aio into Leap Wireless if Leap acquisition is successful

aio wireless

AT&T’s Aio prepaid service may not have a very long lifespan if the acquisition of Leap Wireless is successful. According to AT&T, if the acquisition goes through, they plan on merging Aio into Leap’s business under the Cricket brand. While it would be good news for AT&T in building up brand recognition for their prepaid service nationwide, it would likely mean Aio customers would have to switch over to a new plan and carrier.

Leap shareholders will vote on the acquisition on October 24th, and we’ll keep you updated on what happens. Any Aio customers disappointed to hear this news?

AT&T to begin deploying fiber network in Austin, Texas to compete with Google Fiber

ATT fiber

AT&T has announced that they will be bringing their fiber network to Austin, Texas later this year to compete with Google’s own fiber network. AT&T’s network matches up with Google’s fairly well, offering up to 1 gigabit-per-second speeds. AT&T is hopeful that this deployment will bring their network to tens of thousands of people in the area by the end of 2014. The CEO of the wireless network operator seems to think that the costs associated with deploying fiber optic cable has come down enough that it’s a smart financial decision to start aggressively pushing this new network, and that he hopes to see more companies expand fiber networks into new markets in the next few years, and hopefully he’s right. Increased competition in the fiber market would mean better prices for consumers and faster internet connection speeds. It’s a win-win situation.
