If you’re still clinging to AT&T’s legacy unlimited data, you’re going to be charged an extra $5 per month starting February 2016.
While the price increase was first reported by 9to5Mac, AT&T confirmed to techradar that customers will see an increase from $30 to $35 per month for those still ‘grandfathered’ on it’s unlimited data plan.
Though AT&T is increasing the price of this plan for the first time in 7 years, it’s a plan that hasn’t been offered to new customers for a few years now.
It’s also, however, not the only carrier to increase it’s unlimited plan this year, with Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile also increasing their unlimited plans as well.
Carriers have been pulling away from unlimited data plans for a few years now, with T-Mobile and Sprint the only carriers now to offer an unlimited data plan to new customers in the US.
But with these prices increases, will you still hold on to your unlimited option, knowing you’ll never be able to sign on to it again under AT&T, or will you cave in to the more common tiered data allowance plans the carrier has been pushing?
