Paid $23 million to make the case go away
AT&T Illinois will pay $23 million after it admitted to making payments to former Illinois Speaker of the House Michael Madigan’s political ally in return for his “vote and influence over a bill.”
But at least the US telcos will make money
The chief executives of major US passenger and cargo carriers on Monday warned of an impending "catastrophic" aviation crisis in less than 36 hours, when AT&T and Verizon turn on their new 5G service.

The Federal Aviation Administration has backed down from its request for more 5G delays from AT&T and Verizon over fears that planes might drop out of the sky.
We don’t think you know who is in charge here
AT&T and Verizon rejected the US Department of Transportation's request that they delay this week's scheduled launch of a new round of 5G wireless service.
See if planes stop dropping out of the sky
AT&T and Verizon said they will slightly reduce the power of their 5G transmissions in C-band spectrum for six months to see if it stops interfering with aircraft radar.
Not how it is supposed to work
5G phones connected to AT&T got slower speeds than 4G phones in 21 out of 22 cities.
Unlocked millions of iPhones
The US DoJ has said that AT&T employees took bribes to unlock millions of "super secure" iPhones and to install malware and unauthorised hardware on the company's network.
Saves having to provide the tech
Under the bonnet of iOS 12.2 update Apple is claiming it can run AT&T’s “5G E” standard on iPhones.
