Unlimited Plans Overview

If you are trying to find a cell phone plan with unlimited 4G data then you have come to the right place.  This page will help you to find the best unlimited data plan to fit your needs.  Plans from all carriers are compared.

The cell phone plans compared here represent the rarest of the rare.  The plans listed all include unlimited data, talk and text with data being 4G LTE with no data throttling 1)Sprint considers 23 GB unlimited 4G LTE, T-Mobile 50 GB, after that data speeds can vary based on how busy the network is.  T-Mobile and Sprint call this data prioritization.  AT&T and Verizon enable data prioritization after 22 GB .

If you don’t know what data throttling is, it is that thing that happens to you when you use up all of your high speed data in a month and it takes your phone impossibly long to load a website or your favorite videos.

There are very few providers out there that actually offer truly unlimited data at 4G LTE speeds, and most that do operate on either the Sprint or T-Mobile networks.  By offering unlimited data plans those two carriers and their MVNO’s help differentiate themselves from their much larger competitors, AT&T and Verizon.  AT&T and Verizon both have better nationwide coverage than T-Mobile and Sprint but their unlimited data plan options are limited.


Unlimited Data Plans List

Unlimited 4G LTE plans from every wireless provider in the USA are compared in this easy to read table of unlimited data plans. All plans include unlimited talk and text with the cheapest plan starting at just $45/month.

Note: Data prioritization means that the carrier or MVNO may temporarily slow your speeds down during times that their network is experiencing a high volume of traffic. This is only applied once a certain amount of data has been consumed in a month and once network congestion gets relieved, your data speeds will go back to normal.

Boost has been throttling my data the last two billing cycles, and today I couldn’t even access maps or Facebook, after using only 4 GB this cycle. A text message was unable to go through at one point. I’ve been with them for 2 years. Last month, I told the tech support person I was leaving and hung up. 30 seconds later, the system reset and my data was fine. Had to do the same this month, except it took three calls and my entire evening. I am looking for a new service provider, so far looks like T-Mobile is… Read more »

I’m with a provider using At&t towers and looking for a switch that uses the same or better coverage but with way more data and even hotspots capability. My profession is an over the road trucker so coverage is rather important to me but my current plan with ‘straight talk’ limits me on data usage. Please advise on what would you recommend? thanks

AT&T is the worst. They offer NO tethering plans that I can find, the most expensive (non-)unlimited plans and you WILL be throttled at 23gb even if you’re the only person on the tower. Their also the slowest LTE provider outside of the big cities. Their hardly even worth considering if you live in a less populated area.

How often are these updated? H2O’s basic plan added a gig so its now 2gb a month for 30 dollars

BestMVNO

The tables are regularly updated, and new plans are generally added within a week of going live, but most often right away. H20 has not at this time added more data to its $30 plan, it is still 1GB. H20 has a promotional offering for new customers where the plan includes 2GB for the first 3 months of service, but then it drops back down to 1. These sort of promotional offerings are not generally included in the tables. Please see the promotions section of the homepage to see offerings such as this one. I would not be surprised if… Read more »

I’m stuck between Metro PCS, Simple Mobile, and T-Mobile prepaid plans. I have a T-mobile iphone and I know it’ll work for any of the carriers I listed. I’m looking for Unlimited 4G LTE Data, but with the fastest 4G LTE speed. I believe T-Mobile has the fastest 4G LTE so that’s why I’m currently using their services, even though I know Metro PCS and Simple Mobile offer Unlimited 4G LTE (no cap) for cheaper. What’s the fastest 4G LTE carrier? And is Metro PCS & Simple Mobile REALLY unlimited with no cap? And hotspot isn’t my concern. Thanks and… Read more »

Has anyone tried the AT&T Go Phone Unlimited Plan for $60 per month? I currently have 4 lines with AT&T and with my two teenagers streaming movies and watching youtube, my monthly bills have averaged $400-$500 a month as we keep going over the 30GB a month?
