When everybody else has a better unlimited plan than you, you need to figure out why yours sucks and how you can be a bit more competitive. In a recent announcement, AT&T did just that.
AT&T will not have two unlimited plan tiers which will include Unlimited Choice and Unlimited Plus.
Unlimited Choice will be cheap, slow, and all around pretty bad, but it will be unlimited and it will be cheap. Priced at $60/mo for one line, $115/mo for two lines, $155/mo for four lines, etc. the Unlimited Choice plan will include unlimited talk, text, and data, but data will be limited to 3Mbps and streaming video is capped at 480p with a maximum bitrate of 1.5Mbps.

Verizon, the company best known for championing data caps, made a complete 180 reversal recently by offering a $80 unlimited talk, text, and data plan. In the plan, Verizon advertises HD video and mobile hotspot as among the features, which seems to have gotten T-Mobile’s attention.
As a direct result of Verizon’s move, T-Mobile is countering by making HD video and 10GB of 4G LTE Mobile Tethering included in their ONE plan. Previously, video was downgraded to standard definition and mobile hotspot was limited to slower speeds when using T-Mobile’s ONE plan.
In addition to the changes, T-Mobile is also running a new promotion starting [...]
You know those people who think they’re too cool to show up to your party because they think their party is going to be better, but then everybody shows up at your party instead and they kind of show up too?
Yeah, that just happened to Verizon. After spending years trying to convince everyone that unlimited data plans were stupid, recently going so far as to even make a commercial about how stupid limited data plans are, Verizon is finally coming to their senses.
Starting today, Verizon will begin offering unlimited talk, text, and data for $80 per line or $45 per line for four lines, but you must also subscribe to paperless billing and autopay, just like [...]
Ever since T-Mobile switched to offering their T-Mobile One plan as their only plan, numerous tweaks have been made based on customer feedback. The biggest tweak that was made came before T-Mobile One even launched with the addition of the T-Mobile One Plus add-on, which offered customers the ability to tether at 4G LTE speeds and watch HD video for an additional $25/line/mo.
However according to a recent announcement, it looks like T-Mobile is revamping their One Plus plan now separating it into two tiers with pricing lowered to $15/line/mo for the base T-Mobile One Plus add-on while keeping it at $25/line/mo for the new T-Mobile One Plus International [...]
While preparing for Computex in Taipei this year, one of the biggest considerations I had was to make sure I had a means of staying connected on the go. Given the fact that it was my first time in Taipei and I had a ton of meetings to make, I definitely wanted to make sure I had access to at least Google Maps, my e-mail, and of course LINE, which I quickly realized was the Whatsapp/Viber/WeChat alternative of choice in Taiwan.
Since I use AT&T wireless here at home for my cellphone service, I decided to check with them first to see what type of packages were offered for global data. Taking a quick look at the AT&T Wireless Global Data [...]
