    "Unlimited"*

    *Need to have DirecTV or U-Verse
    *Throttles after 22GB

    Carriers should not be allowed to advertise "unlimited" if there are strings attached!

    I'm glad as well...I paid off all of my three iPhone 6s Plus just to go back with a normal payment plan because it was ridiculous how much I was paying for all three phones on top of my regular cell phone bill and I already have DirecTV for the past three years so I am now with the unlimited data plan I'm happy with it also I get $10 off my DirecTV bill.

    The Community Rules & Guidelines do not "prohibit" outside links, but ask that members "link all related stories to the appropriate Mobile Nations blog." Having said that, it clearly states that we "reserve the right to remove links..." Or close threads. The mods will make a judgement call either directly or via the Mod Team Leader.

    I am grandfathered in with unlimited data with AT&T and recently I found out that if I go over 22 GB (which i normally do) they will cut you off from the regular 4G network and force you to use LTE until the next billing cycle. I like LTE and all but I don't use it much due to it draining your battery faster but now I use wif fi alot so I don't go over the 22 GB as often.

    It is unlimited because there is no limit to the amount of data that you can use.

    Yeah it's throttled after 22 GB when you are in what's deemed an area with network congestion....I've had unlimited with them for going on 4 months now, and I average about 30 GB and have yet to get throttled or have any slow connection. It's just a tool the companies use to try and manage network workloads to try and keep a consistent fair experience for both heavy uses and light users.

    Being an AT&T employee, I can confirm this. The throttling mainly happens in more densely populated areas.

    Same, for another couple of weeks. Are you an RSM? I am taking a position with another company. I'll miss my time at AT&T, but there's too many inconsistencies. My latest gripe is the 8 point rule, and I have an RSC who's at 8 points and another who's at 8.5, and anytime I go to push things forward the ERM and ARSM have issues with enforcing the policies.

    I was told that at 8 points it was an automatic termination, generated by the CAG. I have pissed off employees because our CAG is pointing them for long lunches and early departures, and I had my SSR yell at me saying she left 29 minutes early. I showed her the attendance policy.
