Cricket Relaunches Brand With 4G LTE After AT&T Acquisition

Speaking of AT&T acquisitions, just a couple of months after buying Leap Wireless (which includes Cricket Wireless), AT&T has relaunched the Cricket brand with 4G LTE capabilities. AT&T has also folded its prepaid Aio Wireless service into Cricket, uniting the two into one brand.

“We kept the Cricket brand name, but one thing is certain, we are stepping up our game. We are giving no-contract consumers the value they have been waiting for,” said Jennifer Van Buskirk, president of Cricket Wireless, in a press release. She further stated that Cricket Wireless customers now have better 4G LTE access than Sprint, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS customers, with 97% of Americans covered.
