AT&T announces a new unlimited data plan

......AT&T announced Thursday that it will offer an unlimited data plan to everyone, following a similar move by Verizon earlier this week.

Previously, only DirecTV subscribers were allowed to sign up for AT&T's unlimited plan. Now anyone can.

A single line costs $100 per month and each additional line costs $40 more per month. You can add a fourth line for free, bringing the cost to $180 per month for four lines.

The plan doesn't include hotspot data. You'll have to pay extra if you want to tether your phone's connection to another device.

Like other "unlimited" plans, AT&T says it may slow down your speeds after you use 22 GB in a billing period during times of high network congestion.

As we've written before, there's no such thing as truly unlimited data. There's always a cap, and in some cases your speeds may be slowed down if you hit a certain limit. All four major carriers have similar policies. Still, you can use as much data as you want without being charged extra.



new unlimited plan..................?!

That would be well more than I'm currently paying for 3 phones and 15GB/mo with ATT.

Out of curiosity, what are you paying for 3 phones & 15GB?

We're paying $125 before taxes on a shared 5GB with AT&T. Haven't looked in a while but might be time to change my plan if there are better deals these days.

Unless you are watching HD movies on your phone ALL day, why would anyone need unlimited data? If you are tethering, fine but that is not included. I just can't see using that much data on a phone to be worth what it costs...

Yes, I have the same question.

on ATT and i pay $165 fees included for a 30GB plan with 5GB bonus every month plus rollover. three lines. most months we have about 40-50GB available. my son hogs a chunk and probably uses about 25GB a month. even still, we rollover something every month. see no need to consider anything else.

I was waiting to see how AT&T was going to respond to Verizon's announcement.

I use 5.5 GB on my iPhone and 2-3 GB on my iPad.

Right now I'm overpaying $95 for AT&T grandfathered unlimited data on my phone and a well-priced $20 for 2 GB on my T-Mobile iPad (which also gives me free data overseas).

If T-Mobile's rural Georgia coverage gets there, I might eventually make the leap with my phone.
