    Had AT&T Unlimited on a Hotspot on a Business Plan looking for solutions to regain it

    Hello Everyone
    I had a Nighthawk LTE Hotspot on a business plan that was allowed to connect with the unlimited plan
    I am out in a very rural area and it has worked great
    Mostly 100-200GB usage a month and speeds reaching 60-80 mbps

    Our business plan has a total of 8 Lines I believe with 1 hotspot line (Being the one I used)
    My boss needed a hotspot aswell and went to the At&t store and they transfered my hotspot line to his
    I got kicked off and after telling him he said for both of us to go to the store to see if they would make an exception and grandfather the hotspot I had in aswell.

    It was not possible

    I am now in the rural areas feeling like im back in the stone ages once again lol,
    is there any recommendation? we added a simple 3GB plan to my hotspot to see if we would only be hit by depriorization but it looks like after 3GB you hit a hard wall and your knocked down to dial-up speeds 0.01 mbps

    what other solutions would I have, could I sign up for that Ipad plan and would it be the same?

    I noticed right away when I was on the 3GB hotspot plan speeds would not even go past 10 mbps as if its on a different priority as I had not yet hit the 3GB mark at all and my At&t phone would hit 70-80 mbps on speed tests

    Thanks guys

    If you want to pay 60.00 a month look at Netbuddy. https://netbuddy.co/ runs on AT&T. Unlimited unthrottled hotspot.

    Save yourself $30 and signup for AT&T prepaid iPad plan. Seems like this company is reselling the same plan.

    You “work” for them or promote so get lost with this BS. They’re reselling the $29.99 session-based plans. Their guy on YouTube looks like a ****** and I can’t believe they still exist.

    Nothing they offer is special. Ban this user.

    You can sign up for this AT&T plan that allows unlimited data usage on a tablet or iPad for $29.99/mo., but many users swap the SIM into a hotspot or LTE modem to service their homes: https://buyasession.att.com/sbd/Comm...tePlans.action

    Verizon: https://www.verizonwireless.com/prepaid/
    Scroll down for the official Unlimited Hotspot/Data Plan. You can swap this into any data device.
