ATT 500GB WHPI /(DTV UDP) Mobley Unlimited:2015-Present
Verizon: 2008-2016 (UDP)
The loss of bundling with Directv puts T as risks for further cord cutting from the TV side. T needs to come up with a new bundle that will lock users in, so far there has been nothing. Running the business is secondary to getting the time warner deal through. Mad bonuses for these execs on consummation of the deal.
The bundle benefit is what really ticked me off. Which is why I think they have more in the works.
Anyway, I live in the NYC market and I don't mind going to VZW. Since customer loyalty doesn't mean jack, I'll hop around if need be.

Anyway, this thread has me actually thinking about switching to Verizon. We pay $180 pre-tax on three lines with the grandfathered UPDs. Tethering is a non-issue as I have jailbroken phones. Pulled down 75gb last month while traveling with no slowdown. We don't call Canada or Mexico so that's not enticing either. I'm happy with T's coverage and don't love the idea of switching to CDMA phones. Seems I'm paying about the same no matter what I do.
Att today is making the case for their time deal saying it means better prices for customers. Where's the better prices on unlimited with hotspot now that there's more competition from T-Mobile ?
The least competitive carrier talking about better prices is crazy
"The merger is about giving consumers what they want"
Well we wanted hotspot and $80 for unlimited like Verizon or even $70 like T-Mobile. I'm a big fan of att's network but their bs meter just got upgraded to the newest model.
On top of all that, between T-mo, VZW & AT&T, T-Mo is probably a sure bet they won't pull unlimited down the road while it's a crap shoot on what VZW or AT&T will do since they seem to change course on a whim depending on what they feel is best for them at that moment in time.
Something made VZW panic and that's why we have "unlimited" back today but who knows what next month will bring. Even with grandfathering, it doesn't mean our new plans will be eligible on a 5G network or if they decide to ban this plan from say the iPhone 8 to get people off the plan, that was Sprint's old strategy to get people off SERO, not let them on newer phones.
