    Just got Directv back this past August and I couldn't be happier. The service is great and NFL Sunday ticket can't be touched period.
    Easier to get international NFL Game Pass and get every game live without blackout. NFL Sunday Ticket is a ripoff.

    Ehh that's not exactly accurate. It has to be super heavy thick black clouds for the stream to be interrupted and even then it's seconds to perhaps a minute or two and it happens on rare occasion. Hardly " when it gets cloudy". The picture quality blows any cable out of the water with Fios being the only thing comparable but since it's available hardly anywhere doesn't matter. I've had Fios and cable and Directv. Just got Directv back this past August and I couldn't be happier. The service is great and NFL Sunday ticket can't be touched period.

    When my sprint contract is up next year I will probably going with att if I can get unlimited data like i have with sprint and for the same or less money.
    I had them a year ago. Trust me, it went all the damn time. I hate all satellite TV. They rape you on the boxes too.

    Does AT&T offer the same phone/Direct TV deal if you have their fiber service?

    I have no idea, but I do know the service here hasn't been really all that terrible. Some lag here and there, cut out little during a thunderstorm, but all-in-all it's been a pretty rounded experience

    I have AT&T as well and just a reminder to folks that if you have unlimited and use over 22 GB then you run the risk of having slower speeds on the standard 4G Network or being blocked from using the standard 4G network and will be forced to use LTE until the billing cycle is over. I was blocked from using the standard 4G network and was restricted to only using the LTE network last billing cycle because I went over the 22 GB. At first I thought something was wrong with my phone but ultimately found out it it had something to do with this.

    Satellite and cable TV are quite possibly the work of the devil. Boxes, contracts, rates and fees always going up, etc.

    Yeah but how much exactly did you go over that 22GB throttle threshold.

    It states 22GB on their website...

    It says something along the lines of "may be throttled," so even though I don't plan on abusing it...it seems to me that it doesn't have to start throttling once that magic number is hit
    Yeah def not 16, but I got an email from them that said after 26.

    Yeah but doesn't at&t control the speed of your data? It might be unlimited but i bet the speed isn't? We all need data these days like toothpaste so why don't all carriers in the US n Canada give us unlimited data. It makes sense too...someday it will happen...like the Cubs winning it all.

    Just seen an ad last night for Unlimited Data with AT&T...

    Called this morning and sure enough...$100 for unlimited data, with my 18% discount AT&T just became more affordable.
    Thats so awesome!

    so is this fully unlimited or is it like, you can use 10GB and then throttle you down to 2G speeds?

    EDIT: just read there is a 22GB throttle limit.

    They "may throttle" you after that, but still...I consider it a heck of a deal.

    Oh Yeah, fully agree. Anything over 5GB is perfect for me. I would never use more than that so they can throttle me at 22GB because i would never get there lol ^_^

    If you only need 5gb, even Verizon isn't too bad at $50.

    I think I went up to 30 GB which is what they said is about my normal usage a month. I have had unlimited data with AT&T since 2008 and that was the first time I got blocked from the standard 4G network and had to use LTE for anytime data related until the billing cycle was over.

    I know if you stream video using the Directv App it doesn't use your data allotment.

    It's kind of nice...only gripe I have is I cannot watch football games on my device when I'm out and about.

    Everything unlimited on T-mobile here. I'm glad AT&T joins in. I thought that was a terrible thing to do that they took away unlimited data in the first place.

    I work in an AT&T retail store. DirecTV OR Uverse TV subscribers can get the unlimited plan...

    my sons and I regularly exceed 22 gigs each with no throttling yet...

    And regarding the pricing, it's $100 for first line, $40 for each additional line. Fourth line is free....

    So it's not just an auto-throttling for the rest of the bill cycle?
