Unlimited and speed after 22GB?


Unlimited and speed after 22GB?

I am on my familys phone plan and we just got the unlimited plan, now i was wondering if i go over 22gb, at&t may slow down my speeds if the cell area i am in is expericing congestion, will it slow it down for only me, since i went over 22gb personaly? or does it count the whole familys data usage and slow down every line on our plan?

Re: Unlimited?

Only you. Each line gets 22GB before being slowed.

Re: Unlimited?

@Tjrissi -- @sandblaster is correct; it's just the line that may possibly get slowed down. Depending on area, congestion and tower you are using you may not even get slowed down at all. I went over the 22 GB threshold by A LOT... pushing 40GB and have noticed nothing as far as slowdowns -- still able to stream music, watch videos, and multitask internet searches, etc on my phone with no issues.
