AT&T’s unlimited plans: What you need to know
In mid-February, AT&T expanded access to its unlimited data plan by dropping the requirement that a user must sign up for pay TV service.
Its current unlimited plan starts at $100 a month for a single line, compared to $80/month for Verizon, T-Mobile for $70/month (including taxes and fees) and $50/month for new Sprint customers.
So here are the new options after AT&T went back to the drawing board:
Option #1: AT&T Unlimited Plus
- $90/month for a single line after automatic payment and paperless billing discount
- $145 for 2 lines; additional lines $20/month each
- Unlimited data, talk and text
- High-definition video
- 10 GB mobile hotspot
- Save $25 a month on DirecTV, DirecTV Now or U-verse TV
AT&T has lowered the price for a single line from $100 to $90 a month with AT&T Unlimited Plus, but it’s still the most expensive unlimited plan around.
In addition, the new plan adds 10 GB of mobile hotspot data per billing cycle, which Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint already offer. AT&T previously offered no mobile hotspot with its unlimited plan.
And although pay TV service is no longer a requirement to get an unlimited data plan with AT&T, the wireless provider will give a $25 a month credit to DirecTV, DirecTV Now or U-verse TV subscribers.
Option #2: AT&T Unlimited Choice
- $60/month for a single line after automatic payment and paperless billing discount
- 3Mbps maximum speed
- Standard-definition video (video streamed at max of 1.5Mbps)
AT&T Unlimited Choice is $30/month cheaper for a single line, but speeds are limited to 3Mbps, plus there’s no mobile hotspot or HD video.
â€œThis plan is perfect for surfing the web, keeping up with your friends on social and streaming standard definition (about 480p) video at a max of 1.5Mbps,â€ AT&T said in a news release.
On both of these unlimited plans, after 22 GB of data usage per line, AT&T said it may slow speeds during times of network congestion.
Consumerist reports that new and existing customers can switch to these plans.
