    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.

    Do you have Directv? From my understanding that's the only way to get unlimited data with AT&T.

    Yeah when you have Direct Tv. My family just signed up for the unlimited a few months ago. Remember its also a $40 per line access fee. Not to bad since we live in a spot where the fastest wifi we can get is 5 down and 1 up and ATT LTE we get about 40-50 down and 30-40 up.

    From what I understand it's $40 per line after the first..

    So $100 for the first then $40 for each additional line

    I'm still grandfathered in from the original unlimited data plan. Let's see how long it takes for them to claim that their network cannot sustain unlimited data usage like they did the last time...

    Yeah, I used to have Verizon with Unlimited Data (think I was with them for 8 years). AT&T became better in my area so I sacrificed the unlimited Data for better network coverage. I'm actually giddy about it...the last time they did this was earlier in the year, but I didn't have DIRECTV and I missed out on it. Super glad I capitalized this time around!

    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

    So, does Verizon offer a true unlimited data plan?

    If you are referring to legacy, Verizon doesn't throttle ever and allows official hotspot with no numerical limit but they will cancel you for excessive usage .

    Not unless you have one of the grandfathered plans. I am surprised they haven't done something like att did where if you have Fios and verizon wireless you could get unlimited.

    FiOS is too limited and also they aren't the only ones selling FiOS

    Even more reason to try and build up subscriber base than to push it hard like att does with direct tv. And I understand they aren't the only ones, I was talking about verizon fios.

    You are essentially right. On my bill it shows $60 dollars for the unlimited plan then each line has a $40 dollar charge. I think we got in on a promotion so our 4th line is actually free.

    You are right, luckily I average about 30-50 gigs a month. Just browsing the web and watching my DC hero shows on the CW app and Youtube. Wifi isnt very good in my house as its the "awesome" ATT dsl service. (all that is available in my area.)

    I hate DirecTV so I think I'll never have unlimited data if I ever switch over.

    Kind of crazy to be that way when the option is there. But I mean there is always other options rather than unlimited.

    There's a difference though. Att is pushing direct TV.verizon is trying to get rid of FiOS and even sold some of its holdings.

    Also Verizon I don't think can throttle after 25gb or whatever thanks to Google.

    Me too, I had managed to get unlimited Blackberry data with Bell for a few years but they cut me off last year by calling it a promotion and setting an "end date" it was great while I had it though.

    If any carriers had the option here, it would likely cost hundreds of dollars per month. After all, we pay more here for just about all of our Telecom services.

    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.
