When AT&T announced the Unlimited Plus plans in February 2017 - overnight AT&T went from having some of the worst data offerings for mobile travelers, to being the most data-friendly mobile provider.
Verizon's new Unlimited plan capped high-speed hotspot data usage to just 10GB/mo (now 15GB/mo) even on Jetpack hotspots - while AT&T's new unlimited plans allowed you to add a dedicated mobile hotspot for as little as $20/mo without high-speed data limits!
AT&T was clear that they had no high-speed usage cap for hotspots on these plans at all - other than the standard "network management" occasional slowdown after 22GB of usage on actively congested towers.
For RVers and boaters with any voice lines on AT&T, it became a no-brainer to add on a dedicated hotspot to serve as a primary mobile internet option. And many cord cutters and rural dwellers were doing the same.
It was a deal that was too good to be true. And it seems that AT&T may have finally realized this.
