AT&t plans to offer free internet radio services to its customers without cable TV subscriptions, the latest move in the company’s strategy to expand its wireless services in a market where it has struggled to keep up with competition.
The AT&T wireless service will include an Internet radio component that allows customers to access the Internet on their smartphones and tablets.
The new services will not replace a customer’s existing cable TV service.
Customers who subscribe to the free Internet radio service will be able to access it via their smartphones or tablets via the AT<amp;TTT app, which is available on Apple iOS and Android devices.AT&:T said the service would be free to customers who do not have a cable television subscription.
AT>T said it would be “fully committed to the wireless services we provide to our customers.”
AT&ft;T plans to roll out the free service to its wireless customers beginning March 15, the carrier said in a blog post.
The move will be the latest in a series of moves to expand the wireless service, which AT&tt;T already offers on a nationwide basis.
AT%;T offers its customers wireless service through a separate network that it operates through a company called T-Mobile US.
T-Mobile has been trying to boost its wireless sales and its wireless data offerings as more and more consumers turn to data-hungry smartphones and devices.
In February, AT&rt;T announced it would offer wireless data services on top of its cellular network for $10 per month.
AT¼<c has said that its wireless service is more reliable and faster than other providers’ offerings.
