AT&T Upgrades Data Limits For Home Broadband Plans

"The unlimited data plan is likely for the uber-data users that far exceed their data allowance each month", said Brett Sappington, director of research for Parks Associates, in a research note. During the second month, the company will issue warning to customers when they hit 65 percent, 90 percent and 100 percent of their data allowance. With the acquisition of Direct TV and the way that AT&T has been heavily pushing Direct TV and pushing customers away from its IPTV U-Verse TV service, it actually seems like a ideal time to not enforce data caps since customers going with its Direct TV satellite TV would free up a great deal of bandwidth on the VDSL2 wireline network for internet! I will give AT&T some credit for implementing more realistic data caps and bumping everyone up based on speed tiers (something Comcast should adopt if they are set on having caps). Comcast customers pay $10 for every 50 gigabytes above the limit, as do AT&T's customers.
