Unlike rivals Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile US, AT&T Mobility is not in a rush to trial and deploy LTE-Unlicensed (LTE-U) technology, according to an AT&T executive. AT&T might use LTE-U, but only if it can assure that it will not harm Wi-Fi, according to AT&T's Tom Keathley, who said that the carrier would be willing to wait for a standardized version of the technology known as a Licensed-Assisted Access.
Google Fiber may have only rolled out its 1 Gbps fiber to a few markets, but it's clear that its presence continues to place pressure on AT&T to adjust the pricing of its own fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) U-verse with GigaPower in the markets where it competes with the Internet search giant.
Despite ongoing concerns about the amount of bandwidth that over-the-top video is taking up on wireless networks, the popularity of the medium means that carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile US and Verizon, are making wireless OTT a "key pillar" of their future plans, a Wells Fargo analyst research note says.
ATLANTA--In a nondescript parking garage here, past a set of locked white doors, is AT&T Mobility's Drive Studio, its showcase for connected car technologies. Conceived in 2013 and opened in January 2014, Drive Studio serves as a test bed for AT&T and its partners to tinker on real cars.
AT&T has named Cupertino, Calif., as the latest destination that will get its emerging 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) service U-verse with GigaPower.

AT&T says it wants to make it easy for businesses to keep their customers connected with AT&T Wi-Fi--Small Site. Businesses with small locations can self-install the service to give their customers free public Wi-Fi from AT&T, while keeping their internal Wi-Fi traffic separate and secure.
AT&T has won what could be a victory in Kentucky as Gov. Steve Beshear has signed a law that will limit a service provider's obligation to provide POTS service to consumers and businesses.
AT&T is looking to strengthen the bond it has gained with its growing base of small to medium business (SMB) customers that use its U-verse and wireless services, particularly restaurants and retailers, with its new Wi-Fi Small Site service.
