other people have posted that the mobile hotspot feature did not work. before the mobile share packages AT&T would add a tethering package but I don't think those are available anymore

AT&T has never allowed tethering on unlimited data plans. The opportunity to use in excess if you share the unlimited with other users or computers.

I just saw the option of the unlimited plan, which is significantly cheaper than the 15 GB plan I'm on now, but without Hotspot support there's no way I'm switching. I would argue that the vast majority of folks wouldn't reach the 22 GB limit, where service is degraded, even with Hotspots supported. I know there are a small number of folks that would abuse the service but they should be easily identified and throttled to make it less than ideal to abuse.
So 15 GB, which I very rarely come close to with Hotspot support vs. 22GB unthrottled w/o Hotspot support is an easy choice, albeit more expensive. So much so, I'd investigate changing cell service because of a company's poor choice of service.
15 years with AT&T, and lots of options now.

Scroll down about halfway to "quick facts"
No, tethering and use of your device as a mobile hotspot are not allowed.
Then at the very bottom in the fine print:
Tethering and mobile hotspot use are prohibited.

ATT has never allowed tethering on unlimited data plans.
That is not going to change.

Nope. You are allowed unlimited data use on the devices you are paying for only. Asking ATT to allow you to use a ton more data, by tethering to other devices, is not going to happen.
These are the terms. Just like requiring TV services is a term of the plan. If you don't like them, then don't use the plan.
And take it easy swinging the word "loyalty" around. I see it so often, and when it's used in this way, it is not loyalty. It starts to remind me of a teenager stomping off to their room and saying I'm a mean mother, or they hate me, when I lay down a rule they don't like.
