AT&T teases major announcement for July 16th, showing us “what’s next in wireless”

att july 16th

Hot on the heels of T-Mobile’s big New York City event tomorrow, our friends at AT&T says they have some major news coming next week, as well. The carrier has teased an announcement for July 16th, stating that we should get ready for what’s next in wireless. This would indicate AT&T is going to announce some plan-related or network-related news, but we can’t be too sure about what, exactly, is in store.

The timing is very interesting, with T-Mobile revealed to be taking shots at AT&T in its latest build-up to tomorrow’s event. T-Mobile scoffed at AT&T’s move to a 24-month upgrade cycle in a print ad, and seems to be brewing up an announcement that should make those affected by that change pretty happy.

We can’t do much but speculate right now, but the mobile landscape is about to get very interesting here in America. With competition heating up and carriers getting more bold than ever, we could be nearing a very important change in dynamic. Let’s hope the first fruits of said change are as bountiful on every carrier as T-Mobile and potentially AT&T are planning to make them.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if they introduced device plans but structure more like Verizon’s than T-Mobile’s i.e. no drop in price if you choose that route. Could also be a multitude of other things. Would be great to see them kill contacts, lower prices, and go to T-Mobile style device plans though. I’ll keep dreaming.

      You mean they are throwing a party because they plan on collecting more money from us?

      • WickedToby741

        Most likely. Seems like a semiannual occasion.

    Yeah, you’re dreaming if you think there is going to be any significant change in the mobile landscape in the US… as long as they are allowed to, the carriers will continue to rape us. It’s just a matter of which way we are willing to take it.

      Just the tip please

    • Roaduardo

      I’ll continue to dream that one day mobile carriers will be treated as “dumb pipes”. I pay you for mobile data, you give me mobile data. That’s where our relationship begins and ends. You have no say in what kind of device I buy. You have no say in what the device looks like, what color it is, how much storage it has… NOTHING. You just give me data and shut up and be glad for my business.

      I’ll continue to dream.

    ATT is Pos company they will never be pioneer in consumer interest..its all about their pocket and investors…just like when they eliminated unlimited and tried to convince everyone how it was beneficial to all.

      Never understood the elimination of unlimited data, bad move by them. Can’t say anyone was happy with that decision.

      • The IWC

        I never understood the reasoning why people wanted unlimited data….oh wait, they wanted it so they could cancel their dedicated cable/broadband/DSL/satellite internet and tether their phone to their electronic devices, making cellular companies pay out the a$$ for more bandwidth.

        • TheHowiie

          Cellular companies process the power to slow down data speeds and charge extra for mobile data tethering thus preventing people from actually wanting or trying that.

        • malcmilli

          maybe some… but if that was the case then they would have just capped it at 5gb or something, but they chose to cap it at 2gb and yet charge exactly the same rate they were charging before…. that and plus with ATT guy saying he is mad they didnt charge extra for bbm and imessage, it’s clear it wasnt about saving ATT money (their profits are already ridiculous) it was about creating even higher profit margins.

          You should be named “The Man” not The IWC.

          Sell out.

  • kdy

    T-Mobile 30$ unlimited plan and the nexus 4. 360 bucks a year and 300 bucks for a damn good phone… I finally don’t feel like I’m being violated on a monthly basis.

    • Doug W

      Can this be used on a provider other than T-Mo?? T-Mo is the worst of the big four and it’s not an easy task being worse than Sprint.

  • Me

    Whats the big news? They’re going to stop charging people hidden fees just because?

  • infg3570

    Maybe they too, like Verizon, are teaming up with Jennifer Lopez!

  • Dan Fryling

    Whats next is give us more of your money for less.

  • KOLIO

    I’m guessing they’re introducing the rumored BEATS music streaming service.

  • Azmon Rougier

    24 month upgrade cycle…but only supporting phones for 18 months? PASS!!!!!
