AT&T expanding unlimited data plan to all beginning February 17

Now it's available to everyone, which means anyone can now get an unlimited data plan from any of the nation's top four wireless carriers.

On Thursday, the carrier announced its own unlimited offering, set to become available Friday for all postpaid customers (people who pay their bills at the end of the month). Keep in mind that you'll have to enable these features on your plan to get them, so hop into your account settings on the T-Mobile website or in the app to do so. And yes, there are plenty of caveats. The network may slow down the speed after that.

Now, there is some confusion surrounding this policy, and I've received a number of emails and messages on Twitter about it. Why?

Unlimited data customers will be able to turn it off, however. All these network improvements give the carriers confidence that they can again support unlimited data plans, up to a point.

One thing to note: These discounts don't always apply to the unlimited plans, including Verizon's newest option. The plan doesn't include mobile hotspot data, which requires a capped data plan.

At T-Mobile, you can enjoy LTE data up to 28GB and after this, management will take over each line. Carriers stopped offering unlimited plans six years ago, largely because their networks were being overwhelmed by exploding smartphone usage. But it's now pitching one line for just $50 or up to five lines for $90, though the super low prices last for 12 months before the regular rates return. Last quarter, T-Mobile also gained around 1.2 million new subscribers, almost doubling Verizon's 591,000 new customers.

Stream Saver - Allows you to save data by streaming higher definition video at Standard Definition quality (about 480p). AT&T's best speed was 15.2 Mbps in the Northeast (13.9 nationally) and Sprint's best was 10.7 Mbps in the Midwest (9 Mbps nationally).

When it comes to choosing a cell phone plan, the choices just got a lot more interesting. The company also offers Mobile Share Advantage data plans, which are about $31 a month for 3 GB to $135 for 30 GB, with access fees and taxes costing extra. The only exception is AT&T, since you can not use any data at all with your phone's mobile hotspot feature.
