Content about AT&T

With a few days of reflection, commentary on Tuesday’s Internet outage.

 

It is approximately 2 p.m. on Tuesday when I notice the Internet connection at the Student Media Center is down. I ask the newsroom, and learn that this is a campus-wide problem.

“Let me tweet that,” I say. Of course, I then remember I’m in the Dark Ages with my cell phone and the Internet is down, so I scratch that idea.

Thirty minutes later, I get the RebAlert letting me know that the problem is with AT&T in Jackson.

It was announced Monday that AT&T will acquire T-Mobile for $39 billion. This move looks to combine the nation’s second- (AT&T) and fourth-largest (T-Mobile) mobile telecommunication companies.

A lot of people are keeping a close eye on this deal. It is interesting to note that while T-Mobile is a relatively large network in the United States, it is not owned by an American company.

The iPhone is no longer exclusive to AT&T.

The iPhone is no longer exclusive to AT&T.

Starting Feb. 10, those with Verizon as their service provider will have the option to purchase an iPhone. This is a large step for Apple and the mobile phone community.

For those who have complained (myself included) of poor AT&T service, we now have some form of respite. Already AT&T is jockeying to steal and/or keep iPhone customers.

As a psychology major with the ability to read all minds within a 1,000 mile radius, naturally, I am annoyed as hell at a few things.

As a psychology major with the ability to read all minds within a 1,000 mile radius, naturally, I am annoyed as hell at a few things.

Psychology is an extremely new field of science in comparison to its counterparts, and it has recently mapped out the ways in which humans will emotionally react to stimuli.

And where is this knowledge most being put to use? Where knowledge is always first put to use: how to make us spend more money.

I want to bring to the attention of the DM readers the incompetence of Metrocast Communications.  I recently canceled service at my previous residence before July 31, yet still continue to receive bills from Metrocast, the latest one for service from September 18 to October 17.

The Board of Aldermen voted unanimously August 17 to approve the city of Oxford’s $2.3 million purchase of Bell Utilities, a water and sewage company that serves county residents.

 

Bell Utilities, which serves about 1,200 customers in Lafayette County, will not be bought as an entire entity. The city will only acquire its sewer and water systems.

 

City Engineer Bart Robinson said the acquisition gives Oxford the option to expand the water and sewer system in the future.
