AT&T to Launch New Unlimited Data Plan – Available to All Postpaid Customers

Posted in Miscellaneous on 16/02/2017 by Chris Hauk


AT&T has finally announced it will offer all of its postpaid customers an unlimited data plan. Previously they only offered it to customers who were also DirecTV or U-Verse customers, making their unlimited plan somewhat limited.

AT&T to Launch New Unlimited Data Plan - Available to All Postpaid Customers

The new AT&T Unlimited Plan will include unlimited talk, text and data on 4 lines for $180.*  Business customers can also take advantage of their additional corporate discount.

You can also make unlimited calls from the U.S. to Canada and Mexico, and send unlimited texts to over 120 countries. Plus, customers on this plan can talk, text and use data in Canada and Mexico with no roaming charges when they add the Roam North America feature for no additional charge.

The new plan is priced higher than both Sprint and T-Mobile’s unlimited offerings, and dead even with Verizon’s unlimited price for four subscribers.

The Fine Print

You may have noticed the asterisk in the AT&T news release quote above, that is to denote that AT&T’s $180 price point is after a $40 credit for the 4th smartphone line.  Credit starts in 2 bills. Pay $220/ month until credit starts. After 22 GB of data usage, AT&T may slow speeds during periods of network congestion. The plan includes stream saver. Additional data and other restrictions apply.
