Why AT&T or Verizon Should Buy Twitter

Verizon logo, AT&T Logo and Twitter Bird

U.S. wireless carrier Verizon is reportedly among a handful of other contenders (probably AT&T) are  considering buying social media Twitter.  The renewed speculation around a potential Twitter deal comes as Verizon attempts to navigate its way through a headache at Yahoo, which recently revealed a hack that impacted more than 500 million accounts. Reuters reported. As of yet, it remains unclear what the breach will mean for the Verizon-Yahoo deal.

However, we think AT&T or Verizon should buy Twitter because in my view the carriers provide the worst customer service on the planet compared to any industry.  Twitter in my view could be a much better customer service tool vs a social media tool.  It can be much quicker to get a response versus calling support which typically doesn't help much. Carriers get thousands of Tweets per day to their customer support Twitter handles.  See all the Tweets at Verizon and AT&T customers service in real time below.


Will The FTC Really Challenge AT&T's Throttling?

Is Your Speed Being Throttled for Using Too Much Data
FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez on Tuesday said the Commission is seeking a re-hearing on a recent appeals court decision that allowed AT&T to wriggle free of regulation of its data throttling practices. According to Ramirez, the decision would leave an enforcement gap between the FTC and FCC’s jurisdiction if it is left to stand.

“The FCC’s authority over common carriers is limited to the provision of services for or in connection with common carriage,” Ramirez said. “If common carriers are providing non-common carrier products or services, one outcome might be that neither the FCC nor the FTC would have jurisdiction to respond to practices that harm consumers. And even in cases where the FCC can respond, it lacks authority to seek consumer redress.”

Ramirez said this loophole could potentially allow any company that has or acquires common carrier status to argue immunity from FTC action against any of its businesses. In a best case scenario, she said, the AT&T decision could result in similar services and products from two different companies – one with common carrier “status” and one without – being subject to unequal regulation.

In its 2014 lawsuit against AT&T, the FTC alleged AT&T failed to adequately explain its data throttling practices to consumers, and thus engaged in a practice that was barred under Section 5 of the FTC Act. AT&T, however, claimed it was exempt from liability under that section due to its status as a “common carrier.”

“Removing the exception from the FTC Act would enable the FTC to bring its extensive law enforcement experience to bear in protecting consumers of common carriage services (and non-common-carriage services offered by common carriers) against unfair and deceptive practices in the same way that it can protect against unfair and deceptive practices for other services,” she said. “Removing the exception is the simplest, cleanest way to ensure continued consumer protection.”

Outage Map of MetroPCS on Down Detector

How to Purchase More Data on T-Mobile's Not So Unlimited Data Plan?

T-Mobile's Not So Unlimited Data Plan
If you read the details of the "unlimited data plan" it says the following: Includes up to 2GB of high-speed data on T-Mobile's network instead of standard 500MB (as part of our Simple Starter plan).



T-Mobile Data Plan Usage
We called T-Mobile today in order to purchase more data since our current 2GB data plan ran out apparently.  As you can see by the chart above we don't use more than 1GB of data per month on average.  If you are traveling and using Google Maps for navigation you won't be able to very easily if they cap your plan and turn the data off.

Why am I not able to purchase another 1GB or 2GB of data?  You can't according to the customer service person I spoke with.

T-Mobile proceeds to send me survey questions over text on how easy it was to resolve the issue.  All of my responses of course were 0.  There is not solution to the problem of purchasing more data.

Here is how you find the data pass.

T-Mobile's data passes cost $5 to $10.  Here is the pricing schedule below.


Below is a Tweet and a response from T-Mobile. Apparently they have data passes that they don't seem to promote.
It might be time to consider a data plan from Republic Wireless.  Its a pre-paid data plan that will work on T-Mobile's network.  All you need is a SIM card and you can use T-Mobile same phone.

Customer have been reported a record amount of SiriusXM reception problems in the last year.  This most popular search queries on our blog are related to SiriusXM dead zones.  Some of the issues we have identified have been SiriusXM interference issues with T-Mobile.   Other issues are hard to identify.  I am surprised that the FCC and Sirius has not had more issues reported in the media or to consumer groups?  What seems to be the issue?     Is someone investigation this?
