I checked our usage when this was announced


Household of 4(sometimes 5)

Subscribe to streaming TV provider (AT&T TV) and have Netflix, amazon prime

Multiple cell phones, laptops

Ring security and cameras connected to wifi

Son is a "gamer" but works full time so doesn't live on the game

Parents work FT jobs, stream TV when home. I work evenings and she works days so 1 TV does stream pretty much all day. That will have to change.

Teenage daughter doesn't watch a lot of TV but is often on Facetime and streaming music

When this announcement was made i checked our usage and we've gone over the 1.2gb the last 3 months I looked at. Our usage is the same as it's pretty much always been. We're both essential workers so Covid hasn't changed too much

For RV and on the road trips I have grandfathered true unlimited AT&T Mobley hotspot with good reception most everywhere and I do heavy movie streaming and web surfing for $22.00 per month with vet discount. Also use Mobley for internet backup at home with AC adapter. Very rare slowdowns or throttling but does happen sometimes. Can use up to 5 devices.

For phone call I use grandfathered AT&T prepaid plan that only charges a dollar a day only for the actual days I use it. Charge per minute or call is almost nothing.

I have Spectrum at home with no data caps and I do very heavy movie streaming, web surfing, heavy uploading and downloading of photos, emailing, etc. etc. with very rare slowdowns and no throttling. Speeds average between 116 to 134 mbs. Sometimes over 7 devices in use. Cost is $59.00 per month. Been lucky with AT&T and Spectrum

All that grandfathering is great until it isn't. AT&T will one day change the rules of the game, you can count on it, they always do.
Hopefully they drag their rear ends doing it.

I wish I had $10 for every time AT&T or Verizon changed the rules even when one was under a written agreement. It's always in the fine print.
