Updated AICCU and AT&T Cell and Data Plan Rates

Volume 4, No. 18

o   Leveraging a contract between the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU) and AT&T Wireless, CLU employees can receive a 15% discount on service plans and up to 25% off of equipment at an AT&T wireless store. If on a family plan, the 15% discount only applies to the primary account.

 o   Some exclusions do apply: Apple’s iPhone equipment is not discounted, but service and data plans for the iPhone. New AT&T iPhone data plans are in effect, whereby the discount does not apply to the base plan, currently at $15, but does apply to the higher priced plans.

 o   To receive your discount, present the contract number 3156842 along with your CLU ID at an AT&T wireless store. Existing AT&T customers can also receive the discounts, although account transfer fees may apply. Note that according to AT&T the discount may not appear for a couple of billing cycles.

 o   Since plans change frequently, please check with the AT&T on rates and benefits.

This Issue’s Techno Term:
Term:  3G
Definition:  Refers to the third generation of mobile telephony (i.e., cellular) technology; so named, because it follows two earlier generations.
A new generation of cellular standards has appeared approximately every tenth year since 1G systems were introduced in 1981/1982.
Each generation is characterized by new frequency bands, higher data rates, and non backwards compatible transmission technology.
4G systems are expected to appear in 2011-2013.
Example in a sentence:  Although 3G technology affords faster transmission of data, we probably won’t be satisfied with the status quo; 4G will be welcomed with much enthusiasm.
