AT&T Changes Unlimited Plan After Just Two Weeks
AT&T today responded to consumer feedback concerning its new unlimited plan by overhauling the offer. The new AT&T Unlimited Plus plan for a single line provides unlimited talk, text, and data, and 10 GB of tethering for $90 per month. When first announced on Feb. 16, the plan cost $100 and did not include tethering at all. AT&T says four lines on the new Unlimited Plus plan will cost $185 per month. AT&T is tossing a $25 video credit into the mix that applies to both its wireless customers and those customers who subscribe to both AT&T for wireless service and DirecTV for television service. AT&T wireless-only customers can add DirecTV Now (the mobile TV offering) for just $10 per month after the $25 bill credit. That makes the Unlimited Plan with DirecTV Now $100 in total single line and $195 for four lines). AT&T and DirecTV customers will see their DirecTV bill dropped from $50 to $25 with the credit, making the Unlimited Plan with DirecTV $115. AT&T says the new plans are open to all customers, including those who recently jumped to the unlimited option. Customers who exceed 10 GB of tethering will see tethering speeds capped at 128Kbps for the remainder of the billing period. Tablets cost $20 extra to add to the Unlimited Plan. AutopPay and paperless billing is required. The new Unlimited Plan will be available starting March 2.
