Back in April, Verizon announced it was extending its upgrade eligibility program from a 20-month cycle to a full two years, and it looks like another major U.S. wireless carrier is following their lead as AT&T is announcing they will also be extending their upgrade eligibility program to two years.
Starting today, AT&T will no longer be offering a 20-month upgrade eligibility cycle, and will instead be offering its customers the ability to upgrade their device every 24 months.The change will affect all of its new contract subscribers as well as those whose contracts end in March or later, so if you’re not affected, you may want to seriously consider what your next upgrade will go towards as you’ll be stuck with it for a full 24 months.
The leaked memo doesn’t disclose why exactly AT&T decided to change its upgrade eligibility policy, but we have a feeling it had everything to do with Verizon’s move a few months ago. It’s a move we definitely aren’t too fond of, and as customers, we’re sure you’re not going to be happy with AT&T’s decision either.RELATED
