AT&T to Bump Price of Grandfathered Unlimited Plans by $5
Starting in July, subscribers who are grandfathered-in to AT&T's unlimited data plan will see their service cost climb from $40 per month to $45 per month. The original price of the plan was $30 per month. AT&T last raised the service cost by $5 in March 2017, and by $5 before that in February 2016. In a statement provided to MacRumors, AT&T said, "Consumers are using mobile data at record levels and the trend is expected to continue. To help make sure we continue to provide the best service for all of our customers, a small price increase is being made at this time." AT&T says the new pricing won't coincide with reduced speeds. Right now, unlimited customers can use 22 GB of high-speed data per month before they see throttled speeds when the network is congested. The current price of AT&T's Unlimited Plus Enhanced plan is $80 per month for the first line. AT&T customers can change plans at any time.
