    How will Verizon Counter ATT

    After Att today announced they are bring back unlimited data at a reasonable price if you bundle with Direct TV how will Verizon counter? Will they make a deal with someone else such as Dish? I have had 3 lines of unlimited with Verizon for years and after the increase takes effect this is much cheaper. 3 lines before increase on 1400 minute plan with unlimited data now is $212 with my employee discount. 3 lines with ATT would be $180. After the price increase from Verizon I will be at $262 with no subsidy anymore. I Think Verizon is going to have to counter somehow.

    Verizon will probably launch another pointless root-metrics commercial with rolling marbles and bowling balls. Change their logo to Verizon✓✓+

    Regardless, AT&T's move is a pleasant surprise. The $40/month AT&T unlimited tablet plan can probably be re-purposed into a rural broadband solution with some effort. You'll just have to maintain useless Ka Band video services with the death star.

    AT&T already says no thethering here http://about.att.com/story/unlimited...bscribers.html

    click the picture of the devices and plan on the right hand side of the page. But people might find a way to mask tethering.

    I don't think that KA band Video services are useless especially if you are a sports fan and I bet that Verizon will offer unlimited Mobile broadband for its Fios customers to counter AT&T

    Also keep in mind the Microsoft surface 3 and other windows 10 tablets have built in hotspot capabilities which would be undetectable. It is not registered as tethering like an ipad.

    How will Verizon Counter ATT

    They will need to counter this. There are a lot of directv customers who have Verizon phone but can't get fios. Verizon will need to not require a tv bundle. I will jump on this leaving Verizon if they don't counter it in a good way. At&t has Verizon by the balls with this one.

    Here Verizon, I made a new logo to counter AT&T's new unlimited offering:

    The "✓✓+" means that Verizon data is more better-rrr than Death Star data. You'll be able to charge $30 per GB now!

    ...that will be 50k in consulting fees

    Ya I have been loyal to my unlimited with Verizon for years but ATT has really improved and in fact has better speeds here in Southern Illinois since they took over Alltel last year. I think this is going to be really bad for Verizon. ATT Is also still offering 500 per line to switch if you don't already have direct tv. I am pretty tempted right now since I'm out of contract with Dish.

    This could also be a huge final nail in the coffin for Sprint and it makes binge on from Tmobile look stupid now.

    "*$180: Price after $40 credit for 4th smartphone line. Credit starts in 2 bills. Pay $220/ month until credit starts. After 22GB of data usage on a line in a bill cycle, for the remainder of the bill cycle AT&T may slow data speeds on that line during periods of network congestion. Additional data and other restrictions apply."

    Darn... back to the drawing boards...

    This ATT announcement confirms that wall garden mobile video services are the future! Welcome to the new Cable TV system: your cell phone. Cable TV providers: your on notice. Death Star is out for blood. Verizon better start leveraging their agreement's with the Cable TV providers ASAP.

    The return of unlimited (even if it is a ruse to sell more captive portal services and TV) makes me smile. I think Big Red is in deep trouble and must answer Magenta, Death Star, and... yellow + hot mess? At least AT&T has the decency to leave the pipe wide open maintaining some semblance that there is more to the internet than Apps, Facebook, and Netflix...

    Only way to counter would be to buy Dish.
