There Are A Few Key Details To Know About Verizon Unlimited

The new AT&T Unlimited Plan will include unlimited talk, text and data on 4 lines for $180. That's what many may ask, but I think the best question is, is Verizon's new plan the best deal FOR YOU?

AT&T on Thursday announced an expanded version of its unlimited data plan that does not require an additional subscription to a pay-TV service.

That $95 cost factors in the cheapest combination of voice minutes and texting available then, plus a $20 price hike imposed on the old unlimited deal previous year.

Previously, qualifying for the AT&T Unlimited Plan required customers to also subscribe to either DirecTV or U-verse TV service, but with the new plan, that restriction has been lifted.

Verizon recently launched unlimited data, and then T-Mobile tweaked its own unlimited plan to address Verizon's changes.


It should be noted that for you to experience HD video on T-Mobile's unlimited plan, you'll have to go in and manually turn the feature on from the web.

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.

Are you happy to see improvements being made to unlimited data plans?

The deal also includes a free iPhone 7 for the next 18 months with a trade-in of certain older phones. Earlier this week, Verizon brought back unlimited data, clearly anxious about studies showing that T-Mobile was closing the gap in network coverage and speed (long used as Verizon's justification for higher prices). The announcement says that the "plan includes Stream Saver", a reference to a system that reduces video quality to about 480p resolution. The catch with both options is that you lock in that discounted rate through March 31, 2018. That T-Mobile plan is $70 for one line, $100 for two lines or $160 for four lines, with taxes and fees included.
