AT&T Decides to Play Nice, Takes the Teeth Out of Termination Tariffs

AT&T has decided to pull a Verizon and prorate termination fees for users if they decide to change their contracts. The company says the quit-fines will be reduced according to how long a customer has been with AT&T. Even more important to some users, they'll be allowed to change their level of service without extending the contract, or signing up for more abuse from the Ma Bell giant. If you happen to like AT&T and its fine, fine, cellphone service, this is for you. [Yahoo News]
