AT&T to merge Aio into Leap Wireless if Leap acquisition is successful

aio wireless

AT&T’s Aio prepaid service may not have a very long lifespan if the acquisition of Leap Wireless is successful. According to AT&T, if the acquisition goes through, they plan on merging Aio into Leap’s business under the Cricket brand. While it would be good news for AT&T in building up brand recognition for their prepaid service nationwide, it would likely mean Aio customers would have to switch over to a new plan and carrier.

Leap shareholders will vote on the acquisition on October 24th, and we’ll keep you updated on what happens. Any Aio customers disappointed to hear this news?
