AT&T, T-Mobile share networks to help Sandy victims

The victims of Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York have been experiencing difficulties in getting reception and making cell phone calls. AT&T and T-Mobile are making an effort to make that a little bit easier for the people of those states now. The two wireless providers have agreed to team-up (for the time being) and share their networks.  This will allow customers to use whichever network gets coverage in their areas. The customers do not even have to call a specific number to activate this service; it will happen automatically. “The combining of networks will happen entirely behind the scenes, so all customers need to do is dial out. They’ll automatically be routed over whatever network is currently the strongest in their location.” Moreover, there will be no additional charges and there is not a timeline as to how long this will last.
