When AT&T took the DirecTV requirement off of their unlimited data plan a couple of weeks ago in reaction to the rest of the US carriers all making unlimited moves, I can’t say that people exactly warmed to AT&T’s offering. Nothing was really different about the plan, other than the fact that anyone could buy it. It still didn’t include tethering and wasn’t really that cheap when compared to others. Come this Thursday, AT&T is giving in a bit and mixing it up with two new plans called Unlimited Plus and Unlimited Choice. (more…)
A couple of days ago, we told you in an exclusive report that US Cellular would be introducing their own unlimited data plans come Friday. Well, it’s Friday and US Cellular has made them official as the Total Plans with no hidden fees.
You can see the full details below or in our initial report, but the basics are this. For $60 per month (with auto pay), you can get into a single line that includes unlimited data, talk, and text. You can add additional lines and get discounts on those lines as you add more. For example, a 2-line unlimited account would cost $115, while a 3-line account would be $160. There are also 2GB and 6GB plans, but the big focus will be on unlimited. (more…)

So it’s 2017 and unlimited data is officially back at all of the major US carriers. (Don’t even try to tell me that you saw this coming.) It seemed like just days ago we were paying a hundred dollars for 2GB and 4GB of data and having our grandfathered unlimited data plans ripped from our cold, crusty, fingers with the shadiest of moves. But hey, we’re not about to complain that we can all get back on unlimited data for some decent prices. (more…)
Now that Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint have all done something in the unlimited data plan industry this week, AT&T didn’t want to be left out. Starting tomorrow, they will expand availability of their unlimited data offering to all customers. Previously, AT&T’s unlimited data plan was only available to those with DirecTV accounts, but come February 17, all AT&T postpaid customers can get in on the action. (more…)
In reaction to T-Mobile’s reaction to Verizon’s reaction to the unlimited craze that has once again swept the wireless industry in the US, Sprint has another new unlimited plan to share with you today. This one is dubbed “Best Unlimited HD Plan Ever” and includes the same style of unlimited plan that Verizon introduced on Monday, which T-Mobile already had to match. It includes HD streaming and tethering without the extra up-charge. (more…)
This afternoon, because this is how John Legere works, the T-Mobile CEO has reacted to the new Verizon Unlimited plan by tweaking his company’s own unlimited offering known as T-Mobile ONE. What are the tweaks? Well, let’s just say that since Verizon’s unlimited plan offered a plan that bested his, he’s gone ahead and matched Big Red (in a way). He’s also throwing in a 2-line promo as well. (more…)
