AT&T completes Cricket buyout; plans to fold Aio brand

AT&T, having completed its acquisition of Cricket Wireless, has announced plans for both its Cricket and Aio brands. AT&T expects to integrate Cricket’s network and operation into the larger arm and ultimately migrate the prepaid customers over. Expected to take a few weeks to complete, subscribers will then be able to select new plans and devices. As for those on the Aio network, AT&T plans to fold that particular branding.

In the coming weeks, Cricket will be combined with AT&T’s existing operations to create the new Cricket, with a national presence featuring thousands of stores in states across the country.  The new Cricket is taking the very best from each brand and focusing on providing customers with simple, affordable no-annual-contract wireless that’s easy every step of the way.
