Come July, AT&T will be raising the price of their grandfathered unlimited data plans by $5 per month. That will take the price from $40 per month to $45 per month.
Why the increase? Because “consumers are using mobile data at record levels,” AT&T says. In order to keep their network stable for everyone, a $5 price increase will apparently help with that. That actually makes zero sense. We all know this is AT&T’s attempt to push grandfathered unlimited users off their plan and onto one of their other heavily throttled options. Verizon already did this and I’m guessing it worked.
If you are on one of AT&T’s old unlimited data plans, you’ll be notified here shortly.
