AT&T has quietly increased the cost of its old unlimited plans by $5 per month. The price jump is the second in a year from AT&T. "If you have a legacy unlimited data plan, you can keep it; however, beginning in March 2017, it will increase by $5 per month," said AT&T. After the increase, the old unlimited plan will cost $40 per month. Device access fees, and talk and text services are extra. AT&T throttles its grandfathered unlimited customers once they surpass 22 GB of mobile data per month. Like Verizon Wireless, AT&T stopped offering unlimited plans years ago.
I still see people to this day clinging to these plans. However I have found that maybe 95% of people would be paying LESS by switching to a offered plan. I see people paying $100+ more than what they should just to hold on to that. It's a crutch word that is costing some consumers thousands a year. For anyone that has the old unlimited plan, call your carrier and have them analyze your plan. If saving a hundred bucks a month isn't worth what you are overpaying for the word "unlimited", then I will give you my Paypal address so you can send me money you don't care about.
