No mention of it so I don't think so.

Thanks. It looks like a lot of people will be leaving AT&T and switching to another carrier if that's the case.

Sadly, all ATT did was drop the TV requirement.  This isn't going to do it...

@lizdance40 Don't their mentions of unlimited usually say "no hotspot or tethering" somewhere?

 

And why isn't there a price for a single line plan in the story? http://about.att.com/story/att_expands_access_to_unlimited_data.html

    I see nothing on tethering.  If the plan comes out tomorrow without tethering, It will just add insult to injury.   

    They are changing nothing about price.  

    The only consession is they are allowing employee discounts on the $60 plan charge.

    Verizon has a better offer.

    "* Price after $40 credit for 4th smartphone line. Credit starts in 2 bills. Pay $220/ month until credit starts. After 22 GB of data usage, AT&T may slow speeds during periods of network congestion. Plan includes stream saver. Additional data and other restrictions apply."

    You have to wait for the bill credits to be added to the bill in order for the price to match the Verizon price? I seriously hope AT&T is good about getting those bill credits on the bill when they say they will be.

    One benefit to the customer if they're in a contract with DirecTV is that cable providers are also offering contract buyouts to customers willing to switch back to cable.

    @Ann154

    Welcome back to ATT forum Ann.... unlike the promotional credits for switching or BOGO, this credit is automatically applied by the second billing.  

    As I have written....beware you don't get trampled in the stampede to Verizon.  Woman Wink

    The lack of tethering has been a sore spot with many.   This will be the last straw.

    @Busternutt

    Just in the past 2 weeks a customer wrote they needed the unlimited data, so they cleared $4,000 in trees to put in direct TV.  Hope they wanted the TV service anyway.  Smiley Surprised

    @lizdance40 definitely just dropping the DTV side isn't going to cut it! Not sure what ATT is going after with this awful attempt at remaining competitive. Verizon definitely has the better deal and sadly the better network. Definitely disheartening... thought ATT would take a more aggressive approach.

    And I think what they wanted to do was to use the hotspot!

    @GLIMMERMAN76 I couldn't agree with you more! Tried chatting with an ATT rep tonight to simply ask why they don't offer tethering of any sort. I wish I could have screen shot the 'bland' and 'empty' customer service responses he gave back.... it honestly was disgraceful. I've really enjoyed AT&T since switching but jeez, the deals the other carriers (including Verizon) have out right now are really almost to hard to pass up on.
