AT&T Dusts Off Old Unlimited Data Plans For DirecTV And U-Verse Bundles
Customers who currently have or add either DirecTV or U-Verse will be eligible to sign up for a new wireless plan from AT&T that includes unlimited data, along with unlimited talk and text. It runs $100 per month for the first line/smartphone, and $40 per month for each additional one, except for the fourth line, which is free.
"We've got the content consumers want, we're delivering it to the devices they want, and we're making it as easy as ever for them to consume as much as they want. And, they will get a high-quality video streaming experience from the start. No compromises in video quality, Ralph de la Vega added.
There's a caveat. Well, a couple of them, actually. The lesser of the two is that the free fourth line comes in the form of a $40 bill credit that starts on the second bill. But what some will find more annoying is that AT&T's version of unlimited data translates into 22GB of high-speed data per month. After that, AT&T reserves the right to "slow down data speeds" when the network is congested.
