Just saw that AT&T is launching Aio Wireless today. They say it is targeted at value-conscious customers who don't want an annual contract. Initially offered in Tampa, Orlando, and Houston expanding over the next year. Looks like it will be distributed via an independent dealer network. Good news for consumers looking for this type of plan. Will Verizon quickly follow? Bad news for T-Mobile. If I'm happy with AT&T's network, but like no contract, now I have no reason to jump to T-Mobile. T-Mobile had their moment of glory, changed the industry, and now goes back to being a 2nd tier carrier.
