AT&T and Verizon are delaying the launch of new 5G wireless service near some airports after airline leaders raise concerns.
On Thursday it opened the first of more than 20 planned AT&T Community Learning Centers in places where people need the most help, like Family Gateway in downtown Dallas.
AT&T said on Thursday that it was paying a 20 percent bonus to its front-line union employees above their regular hourly base rate.
"In typical Texas fashion, the private sector is stepping up. I applaud what AT&T just announced, that they are waiving internet data usages for any customers that do not have unlimited home internet access," the governor said.
AT&T will provide partial refunds to both current and former customers who originally signed up for unlimited plans prior to 2011.
