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.  Learn who has the cheapest unlimited data plan, and why it is cheaper than the rest.  Hint, there’s a catch, and there always is!

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. Until recently, Verizon didn’t even believe that an unlimited data plan could be profitable.


Comparison Table Of The Best Unlimited 4G LTE Data Plans

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 mobile is already $45 on their unlimited plan ($50 without Auto pay)
Has been for awhile.

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

truthbringer

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 »

Who offers better coverage in that area T-Mobile (metropcs) or AT&T (Cricket)? You’ll have to check their coverage maps

Sick of false advertising..these company’s advertise unlimited data and slow your speeds down big time!

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?

umm metro pcs does throttle. regardless if you have unlimited 4glte it is “up to” those speeds because they ride the tmobile network and bandwidth is prioritized to actual tmobile subscribers. On top of that, if you are using too much of your “unlimited data” you will also get throttled.

from their T&C

“Based on network statistics for the most recent quarter, customers who use more than 26GB of data during a cycle will have their data usage prioritized below other customers’ data usage”

Liquitrucker
Guest

Metro will throttle you permanently regardless how much data you use. I have been running on Wi-Fi as much as I can because my so called 4g is slower than a slug. Even after paying for another month of service.

Shawn
Guest

Even though the speeds are throttled, I still find cricket’s service to be more than adequate for my needs. I always have 4G LTE service with no throttling and since being with cricket Aug 20, 2016 until today, I have used over 240 Gigs of data…as I said in a previous post, I just wish the plan came with hotspot use. Thx-
