Aio Wireless, AT&T Wireless' new lower priced prepaid brand that's currently only available in a few cities, posted on Facebook and Twitter that they are going to launch in four more markets next month. They aren't telling us where however. Instead they are running a "Where's Aio"contest. To play, follow Aio on Facebook where they are posting clues. Enter your guess in a comment on the Aio Facebook page to enter. There's no mention of any prizes so I guess the contest is just for fun.
The first clue has already been published. It reads:
Healthy runner types, like 60,000 of them, from all around the world descend on this city each Independence Day for what is one of the largest 10K road races in the world. This is a city-wide tradition drenched in red, white, and blue. Where’s Aio running to next?
I'm 99% sure this refers to Atlanta GA's 10K Peachtree Road Race which is held annually on July 4th, had 60,000 participants in 2012 and has a red, white and blue logo.
Aio has four plans with prices that undercut AT&T's GoPhone offerings by quite a bit. Aio data speeds are slightly throttled however. LTE data is limited to a maximum of 8 Mbps and 4G HSPA+ is throttled to 4 Mbps. Aio is currently available in Houston Texas and Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Fl Naples and Ft. Myers, Florida. Nationwide availability is promised in 2014.

|Aio Basic||$40||250 MB||Basic Phones Only|
