AT&T has resurrected the unlimited data plans under some conditions.
This unlimited data plan, which indirectly compels a person to buy Direct TV or U-Verse TV, starts from Tuesday for heavy wireless data users across the world.
With a strategy to gather more services, AT&T launched the unlimited data plan when all other companies have withdrawn their unlimited services. The idea is to attract more of the data plan users for high packages. The plan is also set by keeping in mind that when Direct TV customers are dropping their pay-tv service and not renewing it on time. With the unlimited data plan the high wireless users will opt for the TV service in order to get the facility of the data as well as the TV service in discounted rates.
This unlimited plan is not confined to 22 GB of data consumption. The package gives unlimited high speed data of 22 GB data. Once it’s over the speed gradually reduces and so no longer remains unlimited. 22 GB plan means 50 hours of video, 220 hours on the Internet and spending 250 hours of music which is huge.
The package is set with $60 for the data connection and $40 for each extra connection until three. From fourth till tenth extra connections goes free until 22 GB of data consumption. TV connection for Direct TV satellite services starts at $19.99 however when combined with data plan there is a discount of $10. If a Direct TV customeravails the data connection from AT&T, then the customer saves a lot due to this new plan of combined billing system.
Existing AT&T Wireless, U-Verse and DirecTV customers can sign up for this offer. Even the grandfathered unlimited-data customers may also pay for the voice as well as the texting plans.
The plan is specifically best for individuals who use more than 10GB to 15GB of data per month.
AT&T‘s competitor- Verizon has kept this service on hold and other big service providers like Sprint and T-Mobile have raised their prices. So, it’s open market for AT&T to generate good revenue. Large number of net users will move to AT& T unlimited data plan from their original service providers like Sprint and T-Mobile.
