AT&T Offers Unlimited Data For An Expensive $180 Per Month
Just days after Verizon announced that it would start offering an unlimited data plan after years of offering capped data packages, AT&T will also be doing the same thing. Starting tomorrow, AT&T will let any current or future customer buy an unlimited data plan; currently, only DirecTV customers were able to purchase unlimited data from the said carrier.
AT&T's Unlimited Data Offer
According to Engadget, AT&T's plans are very much similar to what T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint are already offering at the moment. These offers are set for unlimited data customers that will also get full LTE speeds of up to 22GB. AT&T will then reserve the right towards de-prioritizing those customers' speeds in times of network congestion.
Verizon is also doing that after 22GB, while T-Mobile de-prioritizes right after 28GB. From a cost perspective, AT&T claims that four lines of unlimited data will cost $180 per month, plus any device payments you already have on your account.
New Plan Features
AT&T's press release didn't mention anything regarding the possibility of any HD video or tethering restrictions, and there also isn't any pricing info just yet for plans that are less than four lines. But it looks like the company's stream saver feature will be offered on by default, which will limit videos to standard definition
Users should be able to turn that off, at least. Those who are interested in the offer can go up and check AT&T's site tomorrow to get all the necessary details, but several tech sites have already reached out to the carrier and updates will be coming soon.
Some Downsides To Consider
According to Gizmodo, AT&T has confirmed that tethering will not be included on its unlimited data plan. All of its competitors are currently letting you use a certain amount of data with tethered devices, so this offer is sadly unique in this regard.
As for the pricing, AT&T will start at $100 for a single line, $140 for two lines, and $180 for three lines while the fourth line is then going to be free. That puts it slightly above Verizon's new plan if you are only looking to get one line.
