One of the major drawbacks of AT&T’s former unlimited plan was that customers were forced to subscribe to a TV subscription and this drew off many customers from choosing the unlimited offering from AT&T. However, in a recent announcement, AT&T confirmed that they are planning to re-offer their unlimited data plan to their subscribers without requiring them to have a U-Verse or DirecTV packages.
Reports from several reliable sources indicate that the new offering from AT&T will be available to their customers in a few days. AT&T is one of the leading telephone and internet providers in the country, and it seems that they are planning to match their unlimited plan to that of Verizon, which offers four lines to their customers for just $180 without the need to subscribe to a television service.
Nevertheless, a single line offering of AT&T is a bit more expensive when compared to that of Verizon and it is available to the subscribers for $100. AT&T is charging $40 each for the second and third line. This means that the telecom giant is not charging the customers for the fourth line.
Just like Verizon, AT&T will also be slowing down customers when they are in “congested” or busy regions, if the customers have already crossed the 22 GB mark in a month. Reports indicate that customers who do not exceed 22 GB in a month will not be have to worry about AT&T’s this policy.
The new unlimited offer provided by AT&T will also include HD video. However, AT&T has confirmed that they will not allow their customers to use their smartphone as a mobile hot spot. The unlimited plan offered by some of the internet providers such as Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon does offer 10 GB of mobile hot spot data.
In addition to that, AT&T customers who travel to Mexico and Canada will be able to add a “Roam North America” feature, which enables them to use their unlimited plan in both of the countries at zero additional charges. This means that AT&T customers will be able to enjoy unlimited calling, texting, and internet services while they are in these countries.
AT&T also added that their non-TV customers who stick with the oldest unlimited data offering would not be affected by this latest announcement. Reports indicate that this latest offering from AT&T is the best internet service, and will attract more customers to their offerings.
