ATT Merger how can you not say it is not a Monopoly

Postby Berzerk » Fri Jun 15, 2018 1:31 pm

So pretty much ATT is going to be raising their old unlimited data plans that was real unlimited data another $5 after raising it $5 every past year 2 years now. Ticks me off they have raised The original unlimited data so high that now I have to look into their new shitty unlimited data plans. How can any moron with a straight face tell me on the news that this deal is not a Monopoly. Email from ATT about the plan raising.

As smartphone data continues to be used at record levels nationwide, we’re doing everything we can to ensure the best service for everyone. Beginning July 2018, the price of the unlimited data plan you have will be increased by $5 per month.

You’re welcome to stay on your current unlimited plan at this new rate, or consider one of our current plans that can offer great savings, plus unlimited talk & text and shareable data.

Just a FYI people paying bills to ATT online are being sent to false websites that look like ATT websites and getting their information stolen.
