AT&T launches cheap prepaid unlimited plan with slow data speeds

This whole unlimited data renaissance we're having is pretty neat, isn't it?

The unlimited GoPhone plan has the standard 22GB soft cap.

But AT&T GoPhone is an alternative that can save customers $40 off AT&T's regular unlimited data plan, which can run $100 for one line. Another constraint is that the company requires its clients to sign up for the automatic billing plan to subscribe its new unlimited data plan. For most users who consume a reasonable amount of data, the old 8GB plan can reach speeds three to four times faster and is a little cheaper by $5.

Depending on your usage, one of AT&T's new prepaid plans could appeal to you and help you snag the most data for your dollars. That speed will drop down to almost unbearable levels if you exceed 22GB of data within your billing period and are connected to a high-traffic cell tower.

With the new plan, GoPhone Unlimited customers get unlimited talk, text, and data.

There are some finer details of this plan that you should be aware of. So, while you still technically have a data connection, you'll have a hard time doing much of anything with it. You'll also be able to call or text Mexico and Canada without any additional charges, which is nice, but that feature isn't really meant to be the main attraction here. Options are always the best way to get the best value.

This plan is also valid should you travel outside of the USA to countries such as Canada and Mexico, so if you do travel between those countries every now and then, this could be a good plan to hop on board with.
