Grandfathered Family plan with unlimited data compared to new unlimited plans

It seems like the new plans are a better deal but have always been told if I give up my unlimited data plan I could not get it back so I am reluctant to change. Is the data speed the same? Better? Worse?

Data speeds on the new plan are the same unless you get unlimited choice which is capped at 3mbps. Unless you are getting a big corporate discount, there is zero reason to keep your old plan.

Yes. If you change your plan to one of the unlimited plans, the corporate discount will be removed. The discount will still be on your account and will apply to anything else it covers such as accessories but the discount will no longer apply to any plan charges.

Thanks! That is what I figured. I do get a corporate discount but it is not enough to cover the difference in cost. Also we have started traveling to Mexico and it seems the new plan includes usage there as well.

Thanks again!

Until these new unlimited plans were offered in 2017 all plans allowed FAN discounts.  The 2017 unlimited plans expressly EXCLUDE employee discounts.  Only discount allowed is military
