What’s The Difference Between The Two “Unlimited PLans”
Many customers get confused that there are two “unlimited data plans” from AT&T. The easiest way to explain the two is that they both have unlimited data, but the cheaper Unlimited Choice plan has data that’s slower than the other option. This means that if you’re streaming HD video the lower plan may buffer at times whereas the Unlimited Plus plan has the highest speeds data available and should run smooth. If you’re someone who streams a lot of videos and downloads a lot of things on their phone then you may want to opt for the Unlimited Plus plan. If you’re someone who is the average user than you should be able to get by with the Unlimited Choice plan.
The pricing of the two unlimited options is pretty simple. The Unlimited Choice plan is $60 per month and the AT&T Unlimited Plus plan is $90 per month. These prices do not include your local taxes and fees which usually run around $10 per month. In figuring out your total price you’ll also have to add the cost of your device. If you’re financing a phone through AT&T Next then this will add anywhere from $10 for a cheaper phone to $20-$30 for a newer iPhone.
Unlimited Family Plans From AT&T
The family plans are slightly different than the two individual unlimited plans featured. You will choose between the two plans available and then you’ll pay a monthly device charge for the plan you choose for each plan you add. This means that currently, you would pay the $70 per month for the Unlimited Plus plan along with $20 per device you add to your unlimited plan.
AT&T’s family plan allows you to add up to 10 devices per unlimited plan. The price doesn’t seem to change as you add more lines like some carriers, so you’ll be spending $20 per device added per month. In the fine print, it does say that after you use 22 GB’s per month on your plan that they may slow down your data speeds if your network is congested.
