    Is this a shared data plan? Do they throttle you if all the lines use 22gb or each line has their own alottment of data?

    It's per line and the 22 GB isn't a hard throttle.. it's only during cogestion.

    Are you sure it's per line? I just checked my account and it says data is shared.

    This is from the fine print. Pretty much all unlimited plans allow 22 GB (varies per carrier) per line before doing congestion-based throttling.

    "AT&T Unlimited Plan: Data Restrictions: After 22GB of data usage on a line in a bill cycle, AT&T may slow the data on that line during periods of network congestion for the remainder of that cycle."

    As you can see they say once that specific line goes over then the congestion based is only for them (not the whole account) .

    That's what I read too, but it shows shared data on my account. They will probably say oh it was a misprint, knowing Afee&fee

    Yeah they do that. My buddy on AT&T said it clumps it together. Even though it does no worries on the congestion throttle -- it won't happen till you hit over 22 GB .

    The thing that worries me is that I have 4 lines on it now. I had the old unlimited plan myself and used an average 30 gb per month because my work has no wifi.

    You should be fine. My buddy that has the AT&T one said he doesn't notice any crazy throttle after 22 GB unless downtown or somewhere that is heavy with users.

    I am still under the impression it is 22GB per line though. I feel like that could lead to a lawsuit to have it worded as such but not fulfill as such.

    It is per line. I showed the fine print a few posts up. They specifically state per line.

    That is true, I've always gone over 22GB and don't notice any throttling. I'm wondering what speeds do they supposed throtlle at now. A few years ago the throttle was horrible, it was just like 56k dial up speeds

    Verizon allows 10GB of 4G LTE tethering before the throttle to 3G speeds. AT&T does not allow tethering. There are some other differences but I am in class. Lol

    I have 2 lines on Verizon. I have a DPP on each line with the UDP. With the $10 discount for auto pay my bill will run about $215. It's crazy expensive. I should have went with T-Mobile when I switched from AT&T a few months ago.

    So 2 lines with att at unlimited data would be $130? Thats sorta lame. If Tmo was better in my area I'd switch in a heart beat. I'm still in hopes that att will become more competitive.

    I doubt they'll drop the price. They're usually on par with Verizon prices.

    Yeah I am hoping that AT&T will match hotspot data that other plans offer. No hotspot at all kind of hurts their unlimited plan. It is nice to have in case you need it (even if only on occasion).

    So does att offer any type of plan with hotspot? I think they offer a hotspot for your car? If so is that the only one?
