Telecom’s two biggest bruisers are finally set to duke it out in the ring. And don’t expect this pair of pugilists to just phone it in.
Heavy AT&T internet users will have to keep an eye on the amount of data they’ve downloaded, because come May they’ll be subject to overages after a preset amount of gigabytes gobbled.
