AT&T extends unlimited data to all postpaid wireless customers

AT&T extends unlimited data to all postpaid wireless customers

You need to pay only $220 per month until the credit starts.

State, federal, military, teacher, student and employee discounts are readily available across carriers and can drop the price of your plan by 15%-20% per month.

Here's how current plans compare. If AT&T is banking on customers being too lazy or dumb to turn off Stream Saver in order to reduce data usage and decrease network congestion, maybe its network just isn't good enough to support unlimited data.

According to AT&T, the new plan will become available Friday, and will offer customers unlimited talk, text, and data on four lines for $180 after a $40 credit. Starting tomorrow, AT&T will let any current or future customer buy an unlimited data plan; now, only DirecTV customers were able to purchase unlimited data from the said carrier.

Customers also get the now-usual unlimited calls to Canada and Mexico, as well as free roaming (as long as usage outside the U.S. doesn't exceed 50% of your total consumption). While AT&T brought back an unlimited data plan a year ago, it was limited to DirecTV and U-Verse subscribers. One line is $100 plus taxes; each additional line is $40.

When the Douglas Station agents arrived, the people got away, and agents discovered why they ran. Agents found and seized the 47 pounds of pot on the Arizona side of the border, officials said.

The new AT&T Unlimited Plan includes unlimited talk, text and data on four lines for $180 a month (after $220/month for the first two months). The unlimited plan also includes the Stream Saver feature, which downgrades video to 480p.

One of the knocks on T-Mobile US Inc. Then, the carrier upped the ante Tuesday by offering two lines for $100 and including 10 GB of mobile hotspot data, a feature that had cost extra.

Also, the company omits the 10GB of mobile hotspot capability that the rest of the carriers are offering. It's not their fault the bill is the way it is, but being kind will give them a greater incentive to find you the best possible deal. The network may slow down the speed after that.

Since august Sprint and T-Mobile have offered unlimited data plans. On Thursday, it added full 1080p streaming to sweeten the pot, along with a free iPhone 7 for switching. Still, it's now the cheapest, starting at limited-time promotion of $50 per month (plus taxes and fees) alongside an even more spectacular deal that gets five lines for $95 (plus taxes and fees) per month. The latest plan offers $50 more in savings.

Even if Sprint gets an influx of customers from its new offer, the network isn't anxious about handling the uptick in data consumption. Both companies will throttle connection speeds once customers reach 22 gigabytes (GB) of data in a month.
