According to reports, AT&T, in a bid to stay current in increased competition, stated that it will make a new AT&T Unlimited Data Plan available to all post-paid users, with tiers starting at $100 for a single user.
Consumers as well as business users can benefit from the new plan pricing that entails unlimited talk, text and data on four lines for $180 a month. Business users can make the most of the deal with using corporate discounts. Before the transformation, users looking to sign up for unlimited data had to hold a DirecTV or U-Verse account as well.

AT&T verified the new unlimited tier. It said that a single-line plans cost $100 with each additional line coming in at $40. While a four-line example is being used to market the plan, users may add extra unlimited users to their account as required. The fourth line is basically free through a monthly bill credit that starts after 2 billing cycles. Users are required to pay $220 a month until the credit starts.
The regular trimmings are a part of the plan as well, enabling customers to make unlimited calls from the U.S. to Canada and Mexico and send unlimited texts to more than 120 countries. Users who choose the free Roam North America feature can benefit from unlimited talk, text and data in Canada and Mexico without any roaming charges.
David Christopher, Chief Marketing Officer of the AT&T Entertainment Group, expressed,
We're offering unlimited entertainment on the nation's best data network where and when you want to enjoy more of what you love.
AT&T retains the right to throttle data speeds after 22GB of data usage, although it asserts that slowdowns should take place just during periods of network congestion.
AT&T's recent plan has been made public within few after Verizon announced the revival of its own unlimited data tier. T-Mobile that provides all-you-can-eat data under the One plan, retorted to Verizon by starting HD video and offering a 10GB high-speed Mobile Hotspot feature without additional fee.
As AT&T has opened its unlimited tier to all, consumers for uncapped data can choose a plan now from all 4 major U.S. carriers.
