Cricket Wireless is following the footsteps of its parent company, AT&T.
According to reports, Cricket will stop activating non-HD Voice-capable and non-LTE-capable devices on its network starting January 19th. This is in line with their upcoming 3G network shutdown, which is expected to take place in February 2022.
Earlier this week, Verizon announced that they have pushed their 3G network shutdown to an indefinite date. But even though there is no specific date mentioned, the shutdown remains evident. Today, AT&T and Cricket Wireless have released more information about its 3G network shutdown schedule and it looks like it’s happening real soon.
To be more specific, the network is now live in certain parts of downtown Chicago including The Loop, the United Center, and along the Magnificent Mile. Aside from 5G+, AT&T’s low-band 5G coverage can also be found in Chicago.
Early this week, AT&T announced its newest program that lets customers save money under an unlimited plan. The new program, called Unlimited Your Way, lets customers mix and match their chosen unlimited plan.
What this does is that it allows you to customize the plans under each number in your account. You can choose from the three available plan options:
AT&T may have found a way to help make monthly cellphone bills more affordable for its customers.
Yesterday, AT&T CEO John Stankey revealed that they are considering offering a discount on their plans in exchange for ads. The CEO shared that if this strategy will be approved, it would be implemented a year from now.
It looks like AT&T may have hurriedly sent out an email to some customers and caused them to panic just a little. That’s because the wireless network failed to include vital information on an email it sent out to customers today.
It’s really good when companies set aside their differences and come together for the greater good. And especially during this time when there are a lot of people who are in difficulty as brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s nice to see companies doing their best to help alleviate their customers’ struggles.
Now that so many people are turning to work from home, cellular networks will likely see an increase in traffic. This is caused by the sheer volume of users who want to stay connected with their loved ones around the world. To make sure that the networks continue to work smoothly, some carriers have already made the initiative to get extra spectrum.
