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.
