AIO Wireless completes US-wide rollout, available now
AT&T subsidiary AIO Wireless is now available to customers throughout the US. The prepaid service gives users unlimited talk, messaging, and what the company calls "capless" data. Smartphone plans start at $55, giving the user 2GB of full-speed data, up to $70 per month for 7GB of data, at a peak speed of 8Mbps. Feature phone plans start af $40 per month. The carrier was previously limited to a small geographical area, and replaces some of AT&T's "Bring Your Own" plans.
Expanding limited service area to across United States in mid-September
AT&T-owned MVNO Aio Wireless will be expanding its currently-limited coverage further afield, with the parent carrier stating that it will roll out the prepaid service across the United States. People located outside parts of Texas, Georgia, and Florida, areas where Aio currently operates, will be able to sign up for the carrier from mid-September.
Aio Wireless using a different shade than T-Mobile
T-Mobile has launched a suit against AT&T's Aio Wireless brand, claiming that the company is violating a copyright on use of the color magenta, and is willfully trying to confuse and steal customers from T-Mobile. The lawsuit, filed on Friday, is seeking immediate cessation of the color use, and a rebranding of the store's graphical assets.
