    Good news for those who held onto your UDP's from At&t. They now won't begin throttling (on congested towers) until you hit 22GB. This is just going to make my 6s Plus experience even sweeter!

    Still no tethering, but it's a start! :)

    That's cool of them to make unlimited more "unlimited." :rolleyes: I finally relinquished my UDP after 6 1/2 years. I switched to a Mobile Share Plan to save some money and receive a discount through the Next plan. I may have used more than 3GB a month 4-5 times in that time, and more than 5GB once. I was kinda sad to let it go in a way, but I really didn't need it and now I have the tethering option built in.

    Do you have to pay extra for tethering?

    The Mobile Share plans include tethering.

    No, it's free. All of the newer plans include it. It's one of the perks of ditching unlimited data.

    Yeah, if you need lots of data it's better to keep unlimited. I've never used more than 2 GB in a month, so I'd rather save money with the new mobile share plans than throw it away on data I'm not using. I have 3 GB plus rollover data, so I have plenty and my bill is less than $60 per month (not including the hardware charge through Next). Tethering comes in really handy frequently.

    I also noticed this morning that At&t upgraded me to unlimited minutes from the 450/month plan. Minutes has never been an issue but it's still nice to have :)

    I travel to Austin often. No wifi at the condo down there. And I am always streaming music. So this is great. :D

    I wish they still offered a 3GB plan. When I switched to Mobile Sharing last week the only options relevant to me were 2GB and 5GB. I routinely use between 2-3GB so I had to go with the 5. I'm still saving money, so I can't complain too much.

    The 3 GB is the same price as the 2 GB. They upgraded us for free. We just had to go into the app to select it. I'm not sure if they are still doing it. I'd give them a call and check.
