We compare the unlimited plans of Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint

We compare the unlimited plans of Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint

At the same time that our phones become faster, they have better screens and more processing power, it is natural that they consume more mobile data. So, an unlimited data plan can be a great option for our devices that consume too many bytes. However, keeping track of all unlimited plans, prices and their constantly changing features can always be frustrating. Therefore, we have done it here.

The "unlimited data" war between the major operators in the United States has been intensifying. Each one tries to outdo others in terms of price and the amount of data they really offer. This is because unlimited data is like a cup of bottomless coffee in a restaurant: at some point they will take it away.

For most people, these big data plans should be more than enough. But to help you understand what you really get, we compare the unlimited AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon plans, and all the small print that comes with them.

It should be noted that last Friday, July 26, the US Department of Justice approved the acquisition of Sprint by T-Mobile, so in the near future there will be a change in the number of operators. However, for the moment, Sprint and T Mobile They will continue to offer their plans separately.

Later, on August 2, Verizon announced that it will eliminate its current Go, Above and Beyond Unlimited plans, which were replaced by four new plans: Start Unlimited, Play More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited and Get More Unlimited, available starting on Monday, August 5.

Limit and data throttling

At the moment, the four large telephone operators offer unlimited plans with unlimited data, calls and texts. However, they come with a trick when you reach a certain data limit, their transmission speed is reduced or your data demand is sent at the end of the row. These are the data limits of each operator:

  • AT&T: 22GB
  • Verizon: 25GB or 75GB
  • Sprint: 50GB
  • T-Mobile: 50GB

Single line cost

Obviously, one of the reasons why unlimited plans exist is to be able to offer a lot of data at a reasonable price, reasonable enough to be more attractive than overuse fees. This is what a single line with unlimited data costs on each telephone:

A couple of notes on these plans:

  • AT&T, Sprint and Verizon plans do not include taxes, additional fees or extra charges. These vary greatly depending on where you live. But each company has a site to help you estimate how much those charges will be: AT&T, Sprint and Verizon.
  • All plans include a discount for automatic payment: $ 5 / month for Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon and $ 10 / month for AT&T.
  • Verizon's T-Mobile One and Start Unlimited Essentials plans limit people to using standard definition video and only to 3G connection points.
  • AT&T Unlimited & More limits people to use standard definition video with transmission speeds limited to 1.5 Mbps and does not include the access point service.
