Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint's latest deals all include 10GB of mobile hotspot data. It's unclear how exactly this will affect those customers, but we'll be sure to provide an update as soon as details are made available.
As far as worldwide communication goes, AT&T Unlimited offers unlimited calls from the United States to Canada and Mexico, as well as unlimited texting to 120 countries. AT&T's $180 price point is after a $40 credit for the fourth smartphone line, which will start after two billing periods.
Starting Friday, AT&T will launch its new unlimited data plan. Moreover, customers on their respective cellular networks could only stream video in lower quality standard definition, rather than HD, at least without paying higher monthly fees.
Following Verizon's decision to introduce an unlimited plan once again and T-Mobile upping its plan in response, Sprint has now chose to throw its hat in the ring as well. At $22.50 a line, the company is calling the offer its best ever and it includes HD-quality video, 10GB mobile hotspot per line, and an iPhone 7 lease.
Conversely, I've seen some readers assume the new unlimited plan really adds up to $100 on one device, more than the current $95 cost of the unlimited plan Verizon stopped selling in 2011. The carrier, of course, offered unlimited data way back when, but largely moved away from the model and switched to data allotments in 2010.
The $90 pricing requires you sign up for Sprint's automatic payment system (or AutoPay) and is only temporary, going from now until March 31, 2018. Verizon kicked off this recent round of plan changes with its unlimited plan last week. AT&T is in the process of rolling out its stupid Stream Saver video throttling service as well, but that will be optional.
And now it's AT&T's turn to make an unlimited data plan announcement.
