An AT&T official says the company’s proposed merger with T-Mobile USA would improve technology in rural areas of the upper Midwest, but some residents and lawmakers remain skeptical.
AT&T has been denied in its request to build a 350-foot cell phone tower near Voyageurs National Park.
A local radio station is still feeling the effects of what some are calling a racist prank.
AT&T wants to buy T-Mobile for $39 billion. Clearly, AT&T thinks the deal is good for its business. But what about consumers? Is having fewer choices ever good for consumers?
This is a big day for anybody who owns a cell phone, not just the folks who have iPhones. True, the big news is that the iPhone 4 became available at Verizon, after years of exclusivity at AT&T. But the chain reaction could save us all a lot of money.
Previously excluded from the iPhone club because of AT&T’s at-best spotty coverage in this part of the country, cell-phone users in areas of the Dakotas, Montana, Nebraska and Wyoming can now get the phone through the nation’s largest wireless carrier, Verizon Wireless.
