It is clear that the Verizon data plan changes have had a big impact on the industry! Almost all of the networks have announced big changes coming to their cell phone plans. Here is a summary of what is coming.


There will soon be no overage charges when you go over your data plan. AT&T will be offering new Mobile Share Advantage Plans.

Instead of being charged extra, data speeds will drop to a maximum of 128 kbps. Verizon recently started offering “safety mode” which essentially offers the same thing. You can go here for a comparison of the plans and prices.

The changes will begin 8/21.


If you have T-Mobile, there are also some big changes coming your way. Starting 9/6/16, they are offering straightforward plans. The best part: the plans include unlimited data. There are some limits that will slow down speeds though so be sure to read all of the fine print.

T-Mobile ONE Plans:

1st line $70
2nd line $50
3rd to 8th line – $20
Tablet is also $20

All include unlimited on Calls, Text and Data. This means a family of four (or more) can pay $40 per line per month.


Starting today, 8/19, Sprint is launching Unlimited Freedom Plans. You will get two Lines of unlimited talk, text and data for $100 per month.

Boost Mobile

Starting today, 8/19, with Boost Mobile you can get Unlimited Unhook’d. With this plan you get unlimited talk, text and optimized streaming videos, gaming and music plus unlimited nationwide 4G LTE data for most everything else. It’s $50 for one line and $30 for additional line (up to 5 lines total) with no contact.

      Wow. These plans are still ridiculous. It’s no wonder that Republic Wireless is growing so fast. My total bill, including tax, fees, etc is $12.25 a month.

        EdinNC – how do you get Republic down to $12.25? Lowest I can find is $15 … would love to know your secrets. Thanks!

      We pay an astronomical price to Verizon. Our home is so remote we can only get Verizon. AT&T, Sprint and several others have tried but can’t get a signal. Sigh….maybe some day we’ll join the rest of the world.

        I have Verizon and pay only $170 a month for 7 lines and that includes device payments. I think there are probably definitely some discounts you might be missing. Have you checked to make sure they don’t offer any discounts for your employers or if you can get a loyalty discount? I get 20% off for my job and 3% loyalty. I definitely suggest looking at specials they offer during the holidays that can save you money all year long. I actually haven’t even had to make a payment since December because of all the credits I had on my acct from trade ins.

      We have Sprint but only 4gb shared. We’ll jump on their unlimited plan today. Thanks for this information! B

      I think I’ll keep my Tracfone. Only costs me about $100 /year total for phone, text and data. We don’t use much data.
