    Personally, I'd keep it, and make sure I used as much data as possible, just to mess with AT&T really. Sponsored data my foot.
    Agreed they simply refuse to upgrade their network on the server and data center side and they put data caps on youverse and dsl home internet services they just dont want to upgrade to accomidate tge greater data needs and speeds if they penalize you for going over what they say is fare its in the order of 50 dollars on the home service and 20 dollars for the first gig over on cell and 10 for each addituonal gigs so say you have a 25 gig plan you use 27 thats an extra 30 so **** at&t

    Right. They further proved this with that sponsored data BS. They don't need to limit data, they want to to get more money.

    Wait, I didn't get that about U-Verse. I have that service in my house and don't know anything about caps for it. Would you please explain?

    Uverse is suppose to have a 250 GB cap for Internet like comcast does... But like comcast Uverse currently has the cap suspended.

    I have u-verse also. To my understanding, technically there is a 250gig cap, but they are not enforcing it.

    They talk about it at the link below and let you check your usage.

    As you can see in the screenshot below Comcast mentions the cap but has it suspended. To my knowledge it's been suspended for years though... Fine by me .

    They aren't really doing it for Uverse. For DSL customers the cap sticks and theirs is lower (150).

    My parents had/have Uverse forever and when they talked about caps they never were served with one so.. It may have been a few select cities where they did the charging.

    Maybe! I didn't even know that uverse had caps. I've had it for about 4 years now with no data caps so far. *Knocks on wood*

    Technically those people.. Regardless of data.. Aren't abiding their terms of agreement. Most "home" connections specifically say you cannot run servers on their connection.. They'd rather you pay for business class in order to do that .

    i gave it up a few month ago because we had to but a seperate IPAD data plan that wasn't unlimited. We use family share data and we don't even come close. Total savings was about $35 a month giving up unlimited data that's like 400 bucks a year! No regrets

    I dont even see any usage statistics available on my u-verse data information. I see usage for telephone, TV PPV orders, but nothing on data.

    Att.com/myusage just make sure to login with your member is (email) not your cell phone. I'm not sure why you want to see your home Wi-Fi data usage though since that's not related to your unlimited cell phone data plan.

    Also uverse data cap is 250GB per month. After that you get a letter that says you've reached 250 and you will be charged $10 for every 50 more GB you use. This is nation wide. I used to work there. No throttling. They do participate in the program that turns in piraters though.

    And call of duty 24/7 wouldn't even come close to 50GB a month. It's only streaming Netflix in HD for hours and hours averaging 15+ hours a day. That adds up quick with roommates.
