AT&T has revamped their unlimited plans, just a week after opening up their unlimited plan to everyone. They are now offering Unlimited Choice and Unlimited Plus. The main difference between the two is video quality. While Unlimited Plus will show you HD quality video, basically their Stream Saver is turned off, Unlimited Choice will show you video in Standard Definition or SD. This is basically so that AT&T can save bandwidth, and actually handle offering everyone unlimited.
There are a few other differences here too, and perhaps the biggest one is the fact that Unlimited Choice limits your speeds to 3Mbps, while Unlimited Plus doesn't slow you down at all. This means that those on Unlimited Choice will likely use very little data, and never come to the 22GB soft cap that is in place for keeping the network running smoothly. Unlimited Choice also doesn't get mobile tethering, Unlimited Plus does get 10GB per line, and after that 10GB is used up, your speeds are then slowed to about 128Kbps. Finally, Unlimited Plus offers a $25 monthly video credit for those that subscribe to DIRECTV, DIRECTV NOW or U-verse TV. If you already use one of those services, this is really a no brainer.
Now when it comes to price, Unlimited Choice is obviously cheaper, with autopay you're looking at $60/month for a single line. Two lines will cost you $115, three for $135, four for $155 and additional lines are $20 each up to ten lines total. Remember that there is still a line access fee included, and smartphones, tablets, wireless home phone and hotspots are $20 each per month and select wearables (like the LG Watch Sport) are going to be $10/month.
This may not be the best plan available for unlimited data, but AT&T is at least playing ball and actually competing with the smaller guys. This actually is a bit cheaper than T-Mobile's unlimited plan (before you add in the line access fee), which is $70/month. Although there aren't as many concessions with T-Mobile, like the 3Mbps max speed on Unlimited Choice, but at least AT&T is offering some choices for their customers, and potential customers.SHOP: AT&T's Unlimited Plans
