Data Priority of Walmart 25GB plan

Anyone who has recently taken the Walmart $40 25GB plan shed some light on the download and upload speed. I'm weighing between the current ATT unlimited $50 plan which seems like have priority data. Last year Walmart has clearly said it's deprioritized but that has been removed.

All 25 gigs are prioritized the same as the 8 and 1 gig plan. The add says speed is slowed AFTER all your high speed data is used.

After 25 gigs is used up your speed is reduced to no kore than 128 kbps.

priority in order:

Business plans

all consumer postpaid plans, up to the reprioritization threshold

prepaid plans, up to the reprioritization threshold.

@lizdance40 Appreciate your input. Excuse me for my barrage of questions. My current plan (another carrier) is so bad during congestion that I want to be cautious with my next plan.

1. Is AT&T prepaid unlimited Plus better than Walmart plan in terms of data speed during congestion (I'm not considering extra features in this plan e.g 5G, unlimited data after 22GB limit with deprioritization).

Also, any other limitation of Walmart ATT plan you are aware of?

It's the same speeds for the high speed data. Once the 25 gig plan is used up, speeds are useless. The unlimited plus plan might slow down, might slow down sometimes, or might never slow down.


(I'm not considering extra features in this plan e.g 5G, unlimited data after 22GB limit with deprioritization).

"Also, any other limitation of Walmart ATT plan you are aware of?"
Nope. Pretty straight forward. There were a few people who did not get their bonus data right away. If you have any problems contact AT&T
