AT&T unlimited data plan will be available to everyone starting February 17

The new AT&T Unlimited Plan will include unlimited talk, text and data on 4 lines for $180.

That $95 cost factors in the cheapest combination of voice minutes and texting available then, plus a $20 price hike imposed on the old unlimited deal a year ago. After introducing higher-value single-line plans late past year, Verizon began offering an unlimited data plan this week.

Following the new unlimited plans from Verizon and Sprint, AT&T announced today its own new unlimited plan, which is set to be available tomorrow to all post-paid customers.

- On Monday, Verizon released their new Unlimited service and when we put up an article about it, you had a lot to say! In contrast to some of the competition tethering will not be included.

"We're offering unlimited entertainment on the nation's best data network where and when you want to enjoy more of what you love", said David Christopher, Chief Marketing Officer of the AT&T Entertainment Group.

Following Verizon's decision to introduce an unlimited plan once again and T-Mobile upping its plan in response, Sprint has now chose to throw its hat in the ring as well. The number four carrier is also throwing in a free iPhone 7 for 18 months.

The $90 pricing requires you sign up for Sprint's automatic payment system (or AutoPay) and is only temporary, going from now until March 31, 2018. For four lines, you were paying $160 on Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan. However, similar to the unlimited plans of the old days, subscribers have to adhere to a 22GB per month limit before the carrier starts throttling their speeds when the network is busy. AT&T is in the process of rolling out its stupid Stream Saver video throttling service as well, but that will be optional. The only carrier that includes taxes and fees in is T-Mobile.
