AT&T’s network is second only to Verizon’s in nationwide tests, and it’s even better in some cities. And, unlike some carriers, AT&T still offers multiple options for families who don’t need unlimited data.

AT&T family cell phone plans

UNLIMITED PLANS

AT&T offers two unlimited data plans: Unlimited &More and Unlimited &More Premium. Both include access to more than 30 channels of live television on your smartphone via the WatchTV app, which is free for Unlimited &More subscribers.

  • Unlimited &More: Video streaming is limited to standard definition (480p) and LTE data download speeds are capped at 3 megabits per second. Mobile hot spot is not included with this plan.
  • Unlimited &More Premium: Includes 15GB of high-speed mobile hot spot data per month, which drops to 2G speeds after you use your allotment. Video can stream in HD if you turn off AT&T’s “stream saver” restriction. There are no restrictions on download speeds. Option to add on one premium service, like HBO or Pandora Premium, at not additional cost.

The cost for two lines, before taxes and fees, is $145 for the standard plan and $170 for premium. Additional lines are each $20 per month. You can save $20 per month if you sign up for auto-pay on a multiline unlimited plan.

MOBILE SHARE ADVANTAGE

AT&T’s Mobile Share Advantage plans let up to 10 devices share one data package. Like most carriers, AT&T charges you for the data package, plus a device connection fee for each line. That fee is $20 per phone and $10 per tablet.

Below are the monthly prices for AT&T’s limited data plans. Device access charges, when applicable, are extra. So are taxes and fees. You can save $10 per month if you sign up for auto-pay.

  • 1GB: $35
  • 5GB: $60
  • 10GB: $85
  • 20GB: $110
