free wifi / price gouging

It was with great interest that I read that AT&T is offering free wifi to noncustomers during the current crisis. Guess they will pay for that with the price gouging of loyal customers who are forced to use thier mobile hotspots while working from home. Getting hit with an average of $30 per day for me to continue working. Thanks AT&T. Well played.

All carriers are extending Wi-Fi hotspots to non-customers. Xfinity has done it every time there's been a natural disaster. Now it's our turn.
I see no reason not to.
And what exactly is your complaint? It's not like they're tacking a surcharge onto your bill. Some people just need a reason to complain.
AT&T was the first ISP to announce that its customers would not be charged overage on their home internet. Along with all of the other cellular carriers they signed an agreement with the FCC to keep America connected by not disconnecting, or charging late fees to those who cannot pay for the next 2 months.
Sounds just dreadful 🙄

Like I tell everyone all the time mobile hotspot is not a substitute for real internet service. You can get fixed wireless service and they have waived overages on that.
