What is AT&T's best unlimited data plan?

The best unlimited data plan at AT&T is not necessarily the cheapest. We like the AT&T Unlimited Elite Plan, which costs $85/month for a single line of data, because the perks are too good to pass up. The plan features truly unlimited data — other AT&T plans will slow your speeds down if you go over 50GB or if there's traffic on the network. You'll also get 40GB of hotspot data and — best of all — access to the HBO Max streaming service. You can even watch movies in 4K Ultra HD when available.

Unlimited and Prepaid AT&T phone deals

AT&T | Unlimited Starter plan | $35/month with four lines - AT&Ts budget unlimited plan

AT&T | Unlimited Starter plan | $35/month with four lines - AT&Ts budget unlimited plan
AT&T's Unlimited Starter is the cheapest of AT&T's unlimited plans and a great choice for those on a budget. If you get a four-line family plan, you'll only have to pay $35/month per line; a single line costs $65 a month. You get unlimited data, texts and calls and unlimited texting from the US to more than 120 countries. However, you won't get any hotspotting data, and if AT&T's network is busy, your speeds can be slowed. You'll also find your streaming limited to SD.

AT&T | Unlimited Plus prepaid plan | was $70 now $50/month - Discounted unlimited data

AT&T | Unlimited Plus prepaid plan | was $70 now $50/month - Discounted unlimited data

This is an excellent price from AT&T's prepaid selection. It only costs $25 a month for 8GB of data. However, the catch here is that you have to pay the full value upfront — $300 to be precise. If you can afford to pay that in one go, this is AT&T's best value prepaid plan. While the prepaid plan doesn't offer 5G, you do get rollover data,  a mobile hotspot, HD video, and connectivity in Mexico and Canada.
