    ATT Getting Offers above $15 Billion for DirecTV. Good News for C-Band Aspirations

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    This might be a better link. Also, you should remove your speed test from your signature. Ookla did some sort of update and now they show up massive on the web. Removed both of my tests as soon as I saw it.

    I'm glad they are going to sell it. Focus more on wireless, broadband and streaming service like Stankey said.

    Live TV is on the decline. This has been clear for a few years.

    AT&T made a horrible business decision.
