AT&T brings back unlimited data for DIRECTV and U-Verse bundlers

While many data-providers are trying to cutback or eliminate their unlimited plans, AT&T is bringing unlimited wireless data back to the table. The company announced that it will offer a new unlimited data option for its new and existing TV subscribers that bundle their cable services.

Beginning tomorrow, new and existing AT&T consumer wireless customers who have or add AT&T DIRECTV or AT&T U-Verse TV may get the new AT&T Unlimited Plan, with a new pricing structure than before.

The new AT&T Unlimited Plan includes unlimited data and unlimited talk and text. Customers can get the AT&T Unlimited Plan on a smartphone for $100 per month. Additional smartphones are $40 per month each, and a fourth smartphone can be added at no additional cost.

The company states, “If you are a new or existing DIRECTV or U-Verse TV subscriber but not an AT&T wireless subscriber, for a limited time, you can receive $500 in credits when you switch to the AT&T Unlimited Plan with an eligible trade-in, and buy a smartphone on AT&T NextSM.4 And, if you are an AT&T wireless customer, but not a DIRECTV subscriber, you can add a TV package beginning at $19.99 per month for 12 months, with a 24 month agreement.”

“Our new unlimited plan is our best offer yet. It’s the perfect reward for our valued customers who like to take advantage of our integrated offers of TV and wireless services,” said Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T Mobile and Business Solutions. “Video traffic continues to grow on our network as fast as ever because people enjoy viewing their favorite video content on their favorite devices.”

“We’ve got the content consumers want, we’re delivering it to the devices they want, and we’re making it as easy as ever for them to consume as much as they want,” he said. “And, they will get a high-quality video streaming experience from the start. No compromises in video quality.”

As another bonus, when you combine your AT&T wireless and DIRECTV/U-Verse bills, you’ll save an additional $10 a month. The AT&T Unlimited Plan may be available for a limited time to consumer wireless customers. Business customers are not eligible.
