AT&T is matching its competition through opening up unlimited records to everyone.

AT&T has made up our minds to throw up its proverbial arms after a week of intense competition within the cellular area, pronouncing that as of February 17 its unlimited plan, which is recently most effective to be had to DirecTV consumers, might be expanded to all postpaid consumers.

Beginning the next day to come, AT&T1 will release a brand new AT&T Unlimited plan. The plan can be to be had to all shopper and industry postpaid AT&T wireless consumers.

The brand new AT&T Unlimited Plan will come with unlimited communicate, textual content and information on 4 strains for $180. Industry consumers too can benefit from their further company cut price. You'll be able to additionally make unlimited calls from the U.S. to Canada and Mexico, and ship unlimited texts to over 120 nations. Plus, consumers in this plan can communicate, textual content and use records in Canada and Mexico and not using a roaming fees once they upload the Roam North The us function for no further rate.

Costs stay unchanged — it is nonetheless $100 for the primary line and $40 for the others, with a $40 per month cut price at the fourth after two billing cycles. That is significantly greater than T-Cellular's and Dash's choices, however at $180 for 4 strains is true in keeping with Verizon, which AT&T considers its largest competitor (even though it should not given what number of postpaid consumers it's dropping to T-Cellular).

Sadly, in contrast to T-Mobile's most recent move, AT&T's unlimited plan comprises its data-compressing Stream Saver feature, which lowers video high quality to 480p via default. And there is not any tethering, which is disappointing, particularly when the opposite 3 giant carriers come with no less than some tethering of their unlimited plans.
