AT&T to increase prices of legacy unlimited plans by $5 in Q1 2016

Following reports from earlier today, AT&T has now confirmed that the prices of its legacy unlimited plans will be increased by $5, bringing the total cost to $35 each month. This is not exactly a surprise as we’ve already seen #Verizon bumping up the price of its unlimited data plans by $20 while T-Mobile also recently increased prices of its unlimited data plans.

The $35 pricing is still the lowest among the top carriers, so the customers will not be too flustered with this news. The carrier will not make the changes until at least February 2016, so customers still have another two months before they start paying the extra $5 per month.

Luckily, AT&T hasn’t tinkered with the throttling limit, which now remains at 22GB. So you can continue to use unlimited data on your legacy account like before, but will only have to pay the extra $5 every month. This price increase also indicates that the carrier might do something similar over the coming months, so the customers will be mindful of that.
