AT&T customers can finally rejoice because the mobile service carrier will no longer throttle data speeds for customers on its most expensive unlimited plan. The company made the surprise announcement on Monday.
The popular cell service provider is following in T-Mobile’s footsteps as that company announced the same move a few months ago. Before the announcement, AT&T used to throttle data speeds for customers who exceeded 100GB of use. Now that old rule is history.
You can enjoy the unlimited data at top speeds if you participate in the $85 per month plan. And now that AT&T has joined T-Mobile by stopping data speed throttling, it’s only a matter of time before other carriers jump on the bandwagon as well.
But tossing out throttling wasn’t the only announcement AT&T made Monday. Here are two other big ways the company is sweetening the deal for the most expensive unlimited plan it offers.
