There is no such thing as a prepaid 20 gig plan 

There is a $85 ($75 after discount) unlimited plan for prepaid that allows Some tethering.

For the same reason you can’t drive the speed you want on the roads, you have to share.  In order for ATT to provide enough for all, they do place some limits.  

You pay for usage, you don’t “own” the data...   if you don’t like ATT’s terms, go somewhere else

WE don't know what you are talking about.

 

What isn't working?


What is the name of the plan you have?
