To no one’s surprise, AT&T will offer a new unlimited data plan for all of its customers starting tomorrow. The move comes approximately 30 seconds after Verizon made a similar move. The only difference: AT&T’s offering is spendy as hell.
Data junkies rejoice—Verizon is bringing back its unlimited data plan starting Monday. According to a CNBC report, the company will sell these plans for $80 per month for single users or $45 per line on a four person family plan. The only catch is that after you use more than 22GB of data per month on your plan,…
First reported by Droid Life and confirmed by Ars Technica, Verizon will be shutting off the data hose for unlimited data customers who use more than 100GB a month. Although this will only affect people who have been grandfathered into these plans, since Verizon hasn’t offered them for years, it’s the next step in a…
For the first time in ages, AT&T will offer customers an unlimited data plan. The catch? You need to pay for TV service as well.
It's not a lot of gab time and T-Mobile's data speeds still tend to lag behind other major carriers, but for $30 a month this T-Mobile prepaid plan is cheap.
If you're very attached to your unlimited data plan, Verizon's Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo knows better. Speaking at an investor conference Shammo has claimed that "unlimited is just a word"—and one that you don't understand at that.
Tmonews is reporting that T-Mobile, the carrier of the people, will soon be bringing back the holy grail of unlimited data plans. It's the real deal, folks. No speed limits, caps, overages, throttling or anything—just an unlimited amount of data for you to use every month, as it should be.
Unlimited data on Verizon is dead. The death rattle just wheezed out during Verizon Communications CFO Fran Shammo's dream-killing presentation at the JP Morgan Technology, Media and Telecom conference. Everyone with a grandfathered unlimited data plan will be forced to switch to a tiered plan when they upgrade to…
According to Consumer Reports and analytics firm Validas, nearly half of the people with unlimited AT&T data plans don't need it. In fact, those people (which make up 48 percent) use so little data that they should just switch to AT&T's low end 300MB plan. What?
If you're one of the lucky AT&T customers who still has an unlimited data plan, you're probably aware that AT&T hamstings the connections of its "top 5 percent" of data consumers. But it has never been clear who exactly falls into that category. Until now.
Hey Carriers. We need to talk. You know how you said you were going to start throttling high data usage users in hopes to preserve bandwidth? That's bullshit, apparently. It's only because you want to get us onto tiered data plans so you can charge us overages. With hate, everyone.
It seems like all the carriers have banded together to kill the angel known as unlimited data. Even little 'ol Virgin Mobile has joined the murder party, informing their customers that as of March 23rd, Virgin Mobile will throttle users who pass the 2.5GB data threshold. That supposedly effects 3% of their customers.…
Verizon notoriously killed its unlimited data plans this past summer, leaving users with only tiered options with ugly data caps. Not cool. But such is life in the era of bandwidth slurping smartphone ubiquity. Or is it? Apparently there's a secret hack that lets Verizon users add unlimited data to their plans.
Just as other carriers are scaling back or phasing out unlimited data, T-Mobile is unleashing four no-contract unlimited plans targeted at budget-conscious, prepaid customers. Sound too good to be true? There's always a catch.
