AT&T raises price on grandfathered unlimited data plans2017-01-11 15:37 by Daniela
AT&T is increasing prices for its unlimited plans. Starting March 2017, AT&T subscribers with unlimited data plans will have to pay $40 per month instead of $35.
AT&T has been working to drive subscribers out of its grandfathered unlimited plans that are no longer available to new subscribers. The plans were originally a tool to encourage people to get an iPhone during the early days of the modern smartphone era.
"Our Mobile Share Advantage plans and our AT&T Unlimited Plan provide several benefits that our legacy unlimited plan doesn't. If you have a legacy unlimited data plan, you can keep it; however, beginning in March 2017, it will increase by $5 per month," AT&T said in a statement.
