Nearly a month after Verizon and AT&T doubled the data available on their higher-tier shared plans, both companies have announced similar promotions for their mid-tier and low-tier plans, respectively.

"Something worth noting is that AT&T charges a monthly "smartphone access charge" of $40 from those who sign a standard two year contract, and $25 from those who opt for Next, a plan that allows AT&T customers trade in and upgrade their smartphones or tablets every year."

LOL, just when you think AT&T can't become a bigger joke.

Thanks for the access fee info. I didn't know about it. Also noteworthy is that I had to call an AT&T rep to upgrade my plan to 3GB at no cost. The plan will NOT upgrade automatically.

Yet Verizon: Unlimited Data: $30 then 4gb of data used to be $30 then 2gb of data was $30. Prices are still going up quite a bit.
 
I recently changed my plan from an unlimited plan because it wasn't truely unlimited. It had a data capture at 22GB. Once you had reached the cap, your Internet was slowed down to a snails pace of 2G instead of 4G on a LIE network. Believe me once I found out about the no overage charges for family share mobile plans over 10GB. I decided to save myself some money and monthly stress of the monthly billing for 4 devices. All on top of the Note 7 recall, as well as patiently awaiting my account to be properly reconciled and credited.

I am hopeful for a new and more reasonably priced unlimited share plan to my families wireless needs.
