It was confirmed near the end of last week that AT&T will be increasing the price one will pay for its old unlimited plan. Starting this July, an AT&T unlimited data plan will be $5 steeper per month. This isn’t a significant increase and while it won’t break the deal for many of you, it puts competitors in a better spot.
The last time we spoke about AT&T, the carrier added a prepaid line, announced discounts for prepaid customers and upgraded some of its more expensive unlimited plans. The $5 price increase being made soon will move the carrier’s unlimited plan from $40 per month to $45 per month. The plan still includes unlimited call, text and data (throttled), so AT&T might have went forward with the price hike because people sometimes abuse the data. For $45 per month, you’re still getting a fair deal among what other US carriers currently offer. In fact, Verizon offers nearly the same plan for $50 per month following an increase made a few months ago. With 5G on the way, there are bound to be more changes as well.
This is the only justification we have for the price increase that seems like it’ll impact both current and new subscribers since it’s for a month-to-month offer. Meaning, if you’re currently paying $40 per month for this plan, you’ll probably be notified of the change and have to move to a newer unlimited plan or start paying $5 extra every thirty days.
