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?

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.
Sprint's about to make its first step to distance itself from unlimited data. Starting October 2nd, mobile hotspot customers will have a 5GB cap, with a 5 cent per MB charge after that.
Aw geez, I hope you were paying attention, guys. Because unless you signed up as a new Verizon customer yesterday (or before), you missed out on your last chance to feed at the unlimited data trough.
According to FierceWireless, Verizon has confirmed that they'll be getting rid of their unlimited data plans in favor of tiered pricing plans. Starting July 7th it'll be $10 for 75MB, $30 for 2GB, $50 for 5GB, and $80 for 10GB.
