  • No more unlimited data plans for new AT&T customers

    Starting June 7th new AT&T subscibers will no longer have the option for an unlimited data plan. Instead you will have a $15/month option for 200MB of data or $25 for 2GB of data. These two plans encompass 98% of all existing users; however, the small percentage of users who use more than the allotted 2GB will have to pay an additional $10 per GB. New iPad users are also affected and only have the option of $25 for 2GB of data.

    Existing customers will be able to keep their unlimited plans and be "grandfathered" in. For many users that love their smartphones but don't use much data this is a huge cost savings and long awaited. AT&T has stated that the top 3% of data users consume 40% of network bandwidth so they are hoping this will curb usage and put less stress on the network.

    On another note... AT&T has announced the introduction of tethering!! It will be available starting June 7th for an additional $20 per month.

      K, no need for any arguing. He had a post relevant to the thread. It doesn't matter to much if it was older. People always say use the search function but when a thread that is only a couple months old get brought back then it upsets others.

      He is fine; his post is relevant; Happy is correct. Please continue on in a polite manner.
