AT&T customers soon won’t have to worry about going over their monthly data limit, thanks to a new set of plans the carrier is rolling out nationwide later this month.
Instead of cutting your data off once you go over, the new Mobile Share Advantage plans simply throttle your speeds down to a maximum of 128 kbps, making the carrier more competitive with the likes of T-Mobile.
T-Mobile’s Binge On service has been expanded to cover a whole bunch of new content, including Apple Music videos. That means you can watch as many as you like on your iPhone without eating into your monthly data allowance.
