No. Unlimited AT&T plan is now history (and has been for a couple of years). Not a real bargain anyway. How much data do you typically use a month?

OK, I should have said "not a bargin for most users". 

 

You still would not be happy with it, even if available, as the data is throttled after 5 GB each month making it hard to watch streaming video.

 

Keep your eyes open; maybe AT&T will offer "double the data" again for a limited time.

And very few of them stream 90 minute videos constantly on their phone (you are an exception), hence "most users".

 

Back to your original question; you will never again be able to sign up for an unlimited data plan on AT&T. You do realize this is a customer to customer forum. I'm sorry if you don't like my answer.

You can watch a 90 minute video with no problem BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE AN UNLIMITED DATA PLAN. It's not throttled. But for that convenience, you pay for each gigabyte you use. 

 

You can throw all the insults you like, but let me repeat; in answer to your original question, you will NOT get an unlimited data plan now on ATT.

 

Don't come here asking questions and then get all bent out of shape becuase it's not the answer you want to hear.

Or on any other major providers. Some advertise unlimited, but it is only full speed up to a certain point and then is throttled for the remainder of the billing period.

Truly unlimited data is no longer available.

It depends on what you can get internet for. I get internet for $40/month. My wife and I both have wifi available at work so we have the 1GB plan and have never gone over. It is a lot cheaper that getting a lot of cellular data.
