    The biggest thing is allowing 4K streaming.

    Wow, this is a nice surprise from AT&T especially upping the tethering cap and video resolution.

    Between this update to AT&T's Unlimited Elite plan and T-Mobile's Magenta Max, this leaves Verizon as the odd man out with no unlimited plan on offer that doesn't deprioritize data based on usage. And to be honest, until they can put their acquired C-band spectrum to use I just don't see them matching this. As it stands Verizon is too spectrum starved. I didn't anticipate AT&T pulling this move, but that's good for AT&T subscribers on Elite, especially since they don't have to do anything to get these new features.

    Part of this might be because AT&T has the most low-band spectrum of the three: Bands 5, 12, 14, AND 29. Even when you’re at an AT&T cell edge, you still have access to potentially up to 90 MHz of spectrum. (Band 5 20+20 max, Band 12 10+10 max, Band 14 10+10, Band 29 10+0 max)

    Yup, nice little boost for sure. Never have to worry about deprioritization! Even Hotspot got a 10gb boost.

    Are there any other perks? That's not the only place we're adding value for customers. We're also increasing the mobile hotspot data to 40GB - that's 10GBs more at no additional cost
    This is good... but the first carrier that allows either
    a) Pooled hotspot (pooling my lines onto one) for hotspot
    b) MUCH higher amount - even if its on only 1 device (250-500GB)
    Without any serious price increase gets my business.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    I do have something similar here in SoCal... B2 20x20, B5 (5g?), B4 5x5, B12 10x10, B14, 10x10, B29 , B30
    My S10e actually shows 5CA - 20+10+10+10+5
    I've only had ~250Mbps out of it around here. In Woodland Hills, CA, I've hit +300Mbps on LTE.
    Similarly, on T-Mobile (certain location) I've had B2 (15x15, B4 (20x20) , B46 (20x20) and over 400Mbps on a DAS, and B4 20x20, B2 15x15, B71 10x10 with +400Mbps (outdoor macro)... of course go outside the norm on T-Mobile and its 'No Service'

    Consistency is what's most important to me. I'll take a steady 100 mbps on average whether I'm in the city or upstate NY. Not 700+mbps in the city but no service upstate.

    Only if the hotspot data pooling includes the free option of per-line data restrictions to prevent people from using more than their fair share. You wouldn’t want your hotspot speeds grinding to a halt just because someone else on your family plan decided to stream 4K on their laptop instead of directly on their phone.

    That’s kind of a tuff one.

    I 100% agree and would not be happy to find out one of my kids blew through all my hotspot data.

    On the other hand though my wife’s plan has hotspot data like mine but has never once set up a hotspot in her life so it would be nice if I could take her always unused hotspot data and add it to my bucket.

    I agree that At&t is much more consistent in service and performance in general. If (when) I move out of the concrete desert (LA suburbs), there's a good chance I'll need a different carrier. TMobiles rural is more like Hotspot, and not all are equal.

    I'd take a throttled 10-20Mbps) Hotspot service and cut cable. I'm hoping that will eventually happen.
