“The Wall Street Journal” Covers the Story on How I Got A&T to Lower My Triple Play Residential Phone Bill

Over at my other blog, 3Screens.net, I cover AT&T from a consumer's point of view. During the month of December, I spent quite a bit of time going line item by line item in my business and household budget trying to reduce costs. One area that was getting out of hand was my residential triple play phone bill.   I called AT&T and got my bill lowered about about 40%.  Frankly, I was not expecting this much savings, but it did happen. Since then, Telephony Magazine covered the story and today, The Wall Street Journal did this piece....

2009 Predictions and Recommendations to AT&T….

As we approach the new year, you're going to start seeing all sort of "expert" predictions and pontifications from analysts and consultants in the telecom world about what is to come in 2009 with AT&T.   Because of my other life on a blog known as 3Screens.net here's my take, based on the point of view from a real live consumer.  Read all about it here in my column appearing in the San Antonio Express News.

Some use an iPhone.  Some are with Verizon or Sprint. It's a small sampling, but does show a variety of opinions. See the review...

How I Combine Blogging, PR and Social Media To Get Results

Here’s a good example of combining Blogging, Media Coverage and Social Media in order to promote a story on my 3Screens blog 1.  Blogging:  I did a post, including a YouTube video, which is a review of AT&T’s new WholeHome Manager telephony platform on my other blog, 3Screens.net 2. Sent pitches to appropriate Media Oulets pointing them to my blog. This resulted in coverage in leading blogs and news sites such as: DSL Reports, Electronic House, Engadget, TeleCompetitor.  Telephony Magazine, FierceTelecom, Zatsnotsofunny did some extensive quotes both from my blog and my video. 3.  Social Media:  It’s on Digg, Delicious, Twitter, FaceBook, etc. When I see a news story on the subject, I leave a comment like the one here in the LA Business Journal, inviting readers to come and see my post and video.
