The pierce is mostly meant to tempt business to switch carriers, though it could also assistance ATT boost a DirecTV Now subscriber base, by creation a appendage of live TV streaming some-more of a no-brainer for customers.

The same graduation was creatively accessible usually in ATT’s Unlimited Plus plan. That’s a $90 per month devise charity total data, speak and text, high-def video, and 10 GB of Wi-Fi tethering per phone (with speeds that delayed after 22 GB of information use per line.) Oh, and giveaway HBO.
