AT&T To Split Its Telecom and Media Divisions after Time Warner Merger

AT&T - Time Warner Merger

The first announcement about its $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner was made last October by AT&T.

Since then, the two companies have been under a great storm of controversies and talks and the merger has greatly been doubted by far.

With President Trump’s statements against the merger and the opposition by Democrats, the merger seemed to be an impossible deal.

However, with the recent oversight given by the CEO of the huge prepaid phone service provider, Randall Stephenson, things seem positive about the merger talks.

The Oversight

The oversight given by the giant mobile and affordable telephone service provider tells us that the company is going to split its telecom and media assets after merging Time Warner Inc. Thus, AT&T is planning on running as two separate divisions after the merger.

According to experts, the company will be split into two different units with the telecom services and DirectTV by AT&T in one unit and the assets from Time Warner media in another.

Under the Time Warner media unit, the company is said to include channels like HBO, Warner Bros., CNN, etc. by Time Warner.

With this split, it has been announced that the chief strategy officer of AT&T, John Donovan will be promoted to the position of CEO of the telecommunications unit of the company. On the other hand, the entertainment chief of the giant prepaid phone service provider, John Stankey will head its media assets.

It has been mentioned that Randall Stephenson will still be the CEO of the giant mobile and affordable telephone service provider. And besides this, no other leadership decisions have been made yet.

This has been confirmed by AT&T spokesperson Larry Solomon. “No decisions on organizational structure or leadership have been finalized,” he told CNNMoney in an e-mail. “Randall and [Time Warner CEO] Jeff [Bewkes] are working through that. Randall will remain chairman and CEO of AT&T once the deal closes”, he added.

This shows that Stephenson is going to head the giant prepaid phone service provider with two unit chiefs working under him.

While talking about the merger, Stephenson said, “This is a perfect match of two companies with complementary strengths who can bring a fresh approach to how the media and communications industry works for customers, content creators, distributors and advertisers”

The merger talks have been on since last year and things have started to heat up lately. With the giant prepaid phone service provider still waiting to complete the Justice Department’s antitrust review, the big merger has been pending.

However, AT&T seems all set to play its cards as soon as the merger is finalized.

In A Nutshell

To sum it all up, the AT&T and Time Warner merger is going to be a big deal as can be inferred from the rounds of criticism, hype, and controversies that the matter has been dragged through.

The two huge companies are planning on changing the world of telecommunication and cable TV through this merger. Though the merger is still pending to be finalized, we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out for the telecom market in the US and for the two companies involved.

AT&T – Time Warner Merger: Senators Put the Deal under Doubt

AT&T Time Warner

AT&T, one of the leading prepaid phone service providers in United States, announced the acquisition of Time Warner in the month of October and since then, the matter has been in the news quite frequently.

Recently, the AT&T – Time Warner merger has made it to the hottest news again where the merger deal has been put under a cloud of doubt.

Democratic Senators Demanding To Block the Deal

In a letter to Jeff Sessions, the US Attorney General, a group of 11 Democratic senators have highlighted their objection to the acquisition proposal that AT&T made for Time Warner.

The major issues raised by the senators are that the acquisition or merger is going to harm the American customers by laying heavily on their pockets and affecting their access to entertainment programs. The issues include high prices, harm to net neutrality, decreased competition, lack of choice for users, content discrimination, and more.

According to the Democrats, the merger of Time Warner with the renowned mobile and home phone service provider can prove out to limit the competition among TV and mobile broadband providers. Also, the Democrats are concerned that the telecom behemoth and prepaid phone service provider AT&T might violate the principles of net neutrality by limiting the online and TV content of the competitors to its own network.

“AT&T-Time Warner could prioritize Time Warner content, including HBO, over HBO’s competitors in the premium channels market, such as Starz and Showtime. While premium channels are working to reach subscribers through over the top (OTT) services, many Americans still access premium channels by selecting them when they purchase or update their Pay-TV service, such as AT&T-owned DIRECTV. Because AT&T-Time Warner would have an incentive to drive subscribers to HBO, the combined company could choose to not market, market less vigorously, or otherwise harm its premium channel competitors during the DIRECTV sign-up process, which AT&T controls”, says the letter in this regard.

Why the Letter?

Democrats have drafted the letter and sent it to the Department of Justice because regulatory approval to the merger is still pending. Now, after bringing this letter into notice, the officials may or may not approve the merger of the huge prepaid phone service provider with Time Warner.

Thus, the acquisition of Time Warner by AT&T is still under a cloud of doubt.

It’s now in the hands of the Department of Justice. They can completely block the deal, can approve it, or approve it with terms and conditions. The giant mobile and home phone service provider will now have to wait and see what comes its way.

AT&T’s Response

For quite obvious reasons, AT&T denied everything that the letter had mentioned. In a statement, a spokesperson of the huge home phone service provider mentioned that the acquisition wouldn’t bring content discrimination but bring more choices for the consumers.

What’s next?

It’s to be seen whether the DOJ takes the decision in favor of AT&T or against it. With the letter being circulated to authorities, a great buzz has brought the merger under a dark cloud of doubt. With President Donald Trump against the deal, the odds are against AT&T. Still, let’s wait and see what’s next for the AT&T – Time Warner deal.

Has Verizon Really Paid a High Price for Straight Path Acquisition?

Verizon Wireless

There has been a tiff between two telecommunication giants – AT&T and Verizon, as to who was going to acquire the spectrum holder, Straight Path Communications!

And quite recently, the decision has been made by Straight Path and it was decided to be acquired by Verizon, one of the leading telecom companies, known for its quality prepaid phone service in the United States.

The deal has been sealed for an enterprise value of around $3.1 billion offered by Verizon, against its rival AT&T that made an offer of $1.6 billion, the previous month.

The acquisition has been made as an all-stock transaction by the renowned wireless and low income phone service provider. The buzz has spread within the telecommunication industry like wildfire as most experts consider the deal as a ‘huge sum being paid for a tiny spectrum coverage’.

So, has Verizon made an impulsive decision in buying Straight Path? We don’t think so! Let’s have a look, why:

The Acquisition

Straight Path Communications is a spectrum owner with US spectrum licenses for 39 GHz bands, counting to 735 and 133 licenses for the 28 GHz bands. Thus, the company has been named as one of the largest spectrum owners for high-frequency mmWave (millimeter-wave) spectrum.

This spectrum is seen as an extensive resource by the next generation 5G broadband service providers and with this realization, AT&T, a behemoth prepaid phone service provider, started the offer for the acquisition.

At the time of the offer, Straight Path’s stock price was $36 when AT&T offered to acquire the startup with an offer of $95.63 per share.

After AT&T, Verizon secretly sealed the deal through an offer for a whopping price of $184 per share.

With a bid of five times the stock price, the decision of acquisition by the mobile and low income phone service provider has been under a number of doubts.

How is Verizon Going to Benefit from the Deal?

We must not base our judgments on the high-priced bids being offered by Verizon. Straight Path is the owner of a huge amount of 28 GHz and 39 GHz spectrum throughout the country.

After adequate calculations, it has been noticed that the bid amount seemed minuscule in front of what is being paid to cover the potential customers through spectrum licenses used by Verizon for its 4G LTE services. Thus, when calculated from the service point of view of the huge prepaid phone service provider, the cost of spectrum turns out to be 1.7 cents for each person. Thus, the deal wasn’t much of a stretch for Verizon but it was a smart and intelligent decision.

In a Nutshell

Verizon is a renowned mobile, wireless, and low income phone service provider that has been facing tough competition from many other telecom companies emerging in recent times. With the idea of broadening its 5G broadband services, the telecom giant has acquired Straight Path Communications, a spectrum owner.

The acquisition amount might seem huge and reckless but when calculated closely, the deal is going to bring great profits to the prepaid phone service provider. With spectrum coverage throughout the country, Verizon is surely seeking growth with a winning strategy!

AT&T’s New Unlimited Plan: A Turn Down for Prepaid Users

AT&T New Unlimited Plan

The telecommunication giant AT&T has been constantly making it to the news headlines with it’s announcements. And again, this huge mobile and residential phone service provider is in the news, but for different reasons.

The subject of this news is the very new unlimited plan recently introduced by the company, for its GoPhone customers. Let’s have a closer look at the matter!

The ‘Truly Unlimited’ Plan

“We’re excited to offer a truly unlimited plan for our AT&T GoPhone customers,” said Bob Bickerstaff the vice president of AT&T wireless voice and prepaid products.

“AT&T GoPhone customers now have even more flexibility to pick the plan that fits their needs as well as the perfect device from a selection of premium smartphones they really want”, he added.

The so-called ‘truly unlimited’ plan introduced by AT&T is specially introduced for the company’s GoPhone customers.

GoPhone is a contract-free postpaid and prepaid phone service provided by AT&T.

The plan will set you back $65 per month and if you sign up using AutoPay, the plan can be purchased for $60 per month – a $5 savings.

With this plan, GoPhone prepaid customers get unlimited calls, texting, and data. The maximum speed of the data is limited to just 3 Mbps, which is where the major problem starts.

The Problem

If you’re using the GoPhone prepaid phone service provided by AT&T and are planning on buying this new unlimited plan, think twice!

After buying the plan, all that you’ll receive is a snail-paced internet with a bungled video quality. Along with the data speed being limited to 3 Mbps, the GoPhone prepaid users have also been prohibited from using the mobile hotspot.

When it comes to watching videos, the data speed slows down even beyond the limit of 3 Mbps and the download speed is capped out to 1.5 Mbps. The plan also restricts the resolution of videos to just 480p, which is a great turn down for the users.

AT&T customers normally enjoy a 4G data speed of up to 13 Mbps which makes the current plan’s speed limitations quite contradictory.

AT&T has been excelling in the telecommunications industry for years, with its mobile and residential phone service. However, with the recent launch of this unlimited plan, the phone service provider has been surrounded by a number of questions and doubts by its GoPhone users.

The AT&T GoPhone customers can opt for another data plan that offers 6GB data per month at $40. However, the customers that are not using AutoPay will have to pay $45/month for the same plan.

This plan doesn’t restrict the data speed and the users can have easy access to HD videos with their prepaid phone service. The data speed is reduced to 128 kbps post the 6GB usage and there is no overage fee, post usage.

Final Thoughts

A similar unlimited plan at $90/month is available for the postpaid GoPhone customers. This plan comes without any speed limitations of the data and allows around 10 GB of high-speed hotspot and tethering. Thus, allowing the postpaid users to access high-speed internet without many limitations.

With the latest unlimited plan for prepaid and a better plan for the postpaid users, AT&T has somewhere shown an intention of inducing its customers to switch to the postpaid services.

Though the repute of the phone service provider has wavered a little with the limitations of the ‘truly unlimited’ plan, customers still have a number of other options to choose from.

AT&T International Pass Limits Phone Costs Abroad to $10 Per Day

AT&T International Pass

Now, vacations can go just a little less expensive for AT&T customers. They will certainly not get any major shock after returning to home and seeing their wireless bill. AT&T, a renowned phone service provider, has offered great relaxation to the pockets of their appreciated customers. Take advantage of this benefit, and save your hard earned money.  

A little information about AT&T

AT&T Inc. is an American multinational telecommunications corporation, headquartered at Whitacre Tower in downtown Dallas, Texas. It is the third-largest corporation in Texas. AT&T is the second largest mobile telephone services provider and the topmost fixed telephone services provider in US. You can even receive the benefits of its broadband subscription television services through DirecTV.

Several statistics highlight that, as of 2017, AT&T is also the 18th-largest mobile telecom operator globally, with 135 million mobile customers. AT&T Inc. started working as Southwestern Bell Corporation, which is one of seven Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs) formed in 1983 in the divestiture of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company. Southwestern Bell changed its name to SBC Communications Inc. in 1995.

AT&T International pass limits phone costs abroad to $10 per day

AT&T International Day Pass allows users to talk, text, and surf the Web in over 100 countries. But, instead of being charged per minute, message, or megabyte, customers pay just $10 per day per device for each complete 24 hours.

David Christopher’s AT&T chief marketing officer statement

“Traveling has its own challenges,” David Christopher, AT&T, the mobile and home telephone service provider’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “It’s great being able to use the domestic plan you’re familiar with while abroad.” It implies more opportunities to upload filtered photos, translate street signs, video chat, and navigate transportation networks, and less time stressing over exactly what additional charges you are going to be paying.

You just have to add your smartphone or tablet to the plan to access data in diverse destinations, including Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. Also, get unlimited calls to the USA, and other International Day Pass countries. Plus, you can enjoy the benefits of unlimited texts anywhere in the world without paying anything extra. AT&T is a well-known phone service provider, having a myriad of attractive phone plans.  

Christopher’s viewpoint

“AT&T International Day Pass simplifies travelers’ lives so they can enjoy more of their favorite mobile apps when on-the-go overseas,” Christopher said. “This helps with booking lodging, catching a ride … using social media, and more.”

So, if you are planning a trans-Atlantic trip, choose an unlocked smartphone or international SIM card instead. AT&T, mobile and home telephone service provider, reserves the right to withdraw access to the new feature if voice, text, or data usage reaches above 50 percent of the consumers’ total use for two consecutive months. The carrier in August extended its worldwide roaming coverage to take in Cuba, becoming the last main US wireless provider to deliver service on the island. AT&T has maintained a good reputation by delivering the best services to its customers.

AT&T Cancels Discounts on Lifeline Phone Services for Cheap Home Phone Service Users

AT&T Lifeline Phone Service


These times do not seem favor AT&T low income phone service subscribers. They are receiving a financial blow from AT&T. The MPSC (Missouri Public Service Commission) has allowed AT&T to cancel discounts given to poor and disabled customers on lifeline phone services.

AT&T has Given a Reason

AT&T filed its response in this regard to the Missouri Public Service Commission and stated a reason for this decision. According to the company, no more than 6900 low income phone service subscribers are receiving discounted life line phone services. The number of such users has come down by almost 85% since 2008. It appears as if low income phone service subscribers are also switching to wireless phone services. They no longer seem to be interested in discounted lifeline phone services on their wire-line.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noticed more than 59% of cheap home phone service subscribers reside in wireless only households. CDCP had confirmed the fact in 2015. This is possibly why AT&T seems to have made this decision.

The Office of Public Counsel Is Not Happy With This:

The office of Public Counsel responsible for taking care of the public’s interest argued against this decision by AT&T before the Public Service Commission. In accordance with the Acting Public Counsel, Mr. James Owen, “We heard from people who still use it and were asking us to stop” it.

Acting Public Counsel James Owen is Mainly Concerned About Old and Handicapped People:

This is true. He expressed it openly and said that they may find using a cellphone difficult or confusing. This can make life difficult for them to get connected with their near and dear ones or emergency services as cellular phone services in some rural areas can be problematic.

Mr. Owen Lost the Argument Because…

AT&T did everything right from the factual point of view and used the law accordingly. The company said that the discounts on lifeline phone services are being provided by some wireless phone service providers throughout its area. Therefore, anyone losing the lifeline discount on their AT&T home phone can get a Lifeline discount for cellular phone services.

This is Exactly Where AT&T Won the Argument:

According to the federal rules, any low income phone service provider can drop its own lifeline service if some other carrier is providing it to users. This left the Public Service Commission with no choice but to rule the argument in the favor of AT&T and allow the service provider to cancel the discount on lifeline phone service to cheap home phone service users.

Some Final Words

It is a tough blow to the poor families using discounted landline services of AT&T in rural areas. Hopefully, it does not make their life difficult and they find it easy to switch to wireless services and get the same kind of discount. It will be too early to predict the impact of this service on poor families residing in rural areas. Therefore, only the time will tell after the company stops providing the discount on lifeline services in July 2017.

AT&T’s No to Participate in Lifeline Program Frustrates Low Income Customers

AT&T's no to Lifeline Program

Carriers in the United States are locking horns with each other for increasing their consumer base and ROI. Some of the carriers are being praised for their sincere efforts whereas AT&T is receiving severe criticism from some customers and public advocacy groups.

So, what’s the story behind the criticism?

A&T, headquartered at Whitcare Tower from Downtown, Dallas, Texas, United States, is one of the 86 service providers that have refused to participate in a government’s subsidy program aimed at triggering significant reduction in the cost of broadband internet used by low income phone service users. It is a subsidy program for poor families to cover the cost of residential phone service or cell phone service to stay connected with their families, friends, jobs and even emergency services. The program had been expanded recently to include broadband internet services as a medium for closing the digital divide.

AT&T Informed FCC:

AT&T informed the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) via a letter stating AT&T’s own low cost broadband program named “Access from AT&T” as a much better and reliable way of ensuring universal access to internet services. “Broadband internet should be a part of the lifeline program but the present structure of the program excessively pressurizes providers on an administrative front”, says AT&T.

AT&T’s think tank refused to stipulate in this regard. The company also refused to reveal the number of low Income phone service users/families participating in AT&T’s ‘Access from AT&T” program.

AT&T Has a Reason of its own:

Lifeline had been introduced in 1985 with the objective of making home phone service for low income families and individuals more affordable to help them stay connected with their families, friends, jobs and emergency services. The Lifeline program was subjected to expansion of vital wireless services like prepaid cellphone and texting during the tenure of President George W. Bush. This is exactly when the FCC announced an expansion for covering broadband internet services and announced the modernization of Lifeline program by setting up a NEV (National Eligibility Verifier) for checking consumer eligibility for home phone service for low income in order to fight abuse and fraud. The National Verifier is not going to be rolled out to every state in United States before 2019. This is one of the two reasons why AT&T does not want to participate.

As for the second reason, “It makes little sense to spend resources on implementation of a soon-to-be-replaced administrative rule for a new service when we are already offering low-income consumers a better deal through our Access from AT&T program,” Says Joan Marsh, Senior Vice President at AT&T Washington, D.C. She said this while addressing AT&T’s team on a Public Policy blog.

Customers are Frustrated:

This is true. AT&T’s refusal to participate in Lifeline’s broadband program has frustrated many customers. And Jessica Gonzalez, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of California based NHMC (National Hispanic Media Collation), is one of them. According to Jessica Gonzalez, AT&T and the rest of the broadband service providers must participate because “it’s the right thing to do and it demonstrates corporate responsibility.”

She further added that corporate programs like “Access BY AT&T” require low income phone service users/families use credit cards. Such programs most of the time have very narrow criteria for eligibility and disappear immediately after the expiration of FCC’s merger conditions.

Final Words:

AT&T has made its decision. The company has openly refused to participate in the Lifeline program. This has frustrated a lot of poor customers. The move does not look good for the company as it may shrink it’s consumer base. However, it is too early to predict the results of this decision taken by AT&T. For now, just wait for the right time to see the impact.

Keep coming back to us as we will keep you updated in this regard on a timely basis.

AT&T Conducts first Public 5G Demonstration on 5th December 2016


All telecom service providers in the United States are competing hard for growth in the wireless sector in one way or another. AT&T has recently launched an application called DirectTV Now. But the company is not stopping there. Now the company claims to have become the first US carrier to conduct a 5G business customer trial in Austin, Texas.

AT&T’s Announcement on 5th December 2016:

AT&T announced its very first public 5G demonstration in collaboration with Ericson and Intel on 5th December 2016. Successful streaming of 4K HD videos, real time camera feeds and speeds of almost 14 gigabytes per second were the main highlights of this demonstration for AT&T’s Texas phone service subscribers. In addition to this, millimeter wave (mmWave) technology was also demonstrated at one of Intel’s Austin based offices in Texas. This technology is fully capable of powering a 5G network experience.

AT&T Says:

AT&T is very positive in regard to this 5G public demonstration. It takes technology completely out of the labs and into the field to determine the level of its capability to serve real world customers.

Multiple enterprise proof of concept use cases will be tested by utilizing the bandwidth speed of more than a gigabyte per second in this whole process. This is specifically going to include the following for Texas phone service subscribers.

  • Access to internet
  • VPN
  • UCA (Unified Communications Applications)
  • Streaming of 4K HD videos

Rick Hubbard, Senior Vice President of Networking Product Management at AT&T Says:

The company is expecting mmWave technology to become a vital and integral component of 5G. The trial will be key to significant acceleration of AT&T’s 5G work. The trial will definitely highlight the way technology acts in a real time commercial environment. He said this in a statement. Availability of 5G in full strength promises electric fast internet speed. This speed could easily be 10-100 times faster than LTE. It means Texas phone service users will be able to download any full length High Definition movie on their smartphones in just a few seconds instead of minutes.

QUALCOMM is Working Towards Ensuring Transition to 5G:

The chip giant is also working in this direction. The main objective of QUALCOMM is to aid in the transition to 5G. The company unveiled its plans in this regard during the month of October 2016. The company has clear plans of expanding its reach in the camera space. Successful development of hardware and software designed for various types of video and image devices beyond the cameras of mobile devices will play an important role in this process.

Introduction to the 5G modem chipset for connected cameras was also the part of this announcement.

Final Words:

Competitors like Verizon Wireless are yet to conduct their 5G trials in the year 2017. Now all the carriers are expecting 5G to spark an increase in the sales of smartphones and mobile services to a significant extent.  It is not going to be that easy for any company and especially for AT&T. AT&T will first have to convince municipalities to allow for the installation of 5G equipment. Most importantly, millions of towers will be needed.
