Not familiar with their group.I do have an unlimited plan through AT&T so they do exist.
I've got a ZTE Mobley device directly from AT&T with unlimited cellular subject to network availability after 22GB/month (a plan that is no longer offered). It's costing about $25/month.

No direct experience. As I understand it, ATT sells Enterprise (big business) unlimited wireless plans in bulk for as little as $20/mo/line.


Some entrepreneurs set up accounts with ATT on such terms and then resell the lines/SIMs at a markup. Your monthly bill would come from them.


You can some cheaper than $60/month on ebay by searching "att unlimited data".


Here's one for $35/month...

I have Verizon for cell service. I have their unlimited plan, although the data slows to 600kbps after 25G or so. I use my cellphone as a mobile hotspot for all the computers, etc in the rv. It works well.

We had unlimited ATT but have put it in vaca mode and are trying Verizon prepay unlimited hotspot, no throttling! We summer in a no ATT zone, which is what prompted the Verizon trial. On good evenings we can stream GOT without buffering. I wish I could figure out what constitutes a good evening! We pay $70 with taxes, no discounts, on prepay. We did our phones too, $35. each 8G with a free upgrade to 15G each. So far so good! No experience with third party sellers. That ebay thing can go away in a heartbeat. We did buy our jetpack on Ebay.

Even with throttling to 600kbps, I can stream video very reliably on my mobile Verison Hotspot (cell). Large, bulk uploads/downloads are horrifically slow, like purchasing a program online and downloading it. I f I do need t download a huge file, I wait till the "data month" resets and get it then at full speed.

I have 5 gig on an A T & T friends and family plan. We find many places--even in major cities where A T & T is not received well enough to do internet. Thru FMCA we got their 25 Gig Verizon plan, for $50 a month--free Jet Pack. It has worked well, and we never seem to get over 25g--but did definitely go over the 5 G.

Do you use a cell signal booster?

Streaming video in even 320p requires a minimum of 1 mbps or 3g service. 600kbps is 2g Service. So, not sure how this is possible.

I mostly watch streaming video on my PC from Netflix, I think they buffer a huge amt. It takes quite a while to start a movie, but works fine once started. I use the phone itself for HBO, so I expect the data rate can be less with a smaller screen.

Of course as soon as I wrote that I could stream reliably, I had issues with Youtube all night. I think it must come down to how much they buffer the stream.

You might consider Visible, it is a Verizon prepaid plan. You get unlimited and un-throttled voice, text, data on the smart phone you subscribe to it for an all-in price of $ 40 per month. It also includes un-limited but throttled to 5 megabits per second hotspot data thru the hot spot on the cell phone. I am using it and am very satisfied. Works everywhere there is Verizon coverage. Right now they are offering a $ 100 sign on bonus if you bring your own device, and $ 200 sign on bonus if you buy a new device when you sign on. You can get an additional bonus of $ 20 if you use my referral code of vBF6q.

I am using Visible thru my iPhone 7 Plus Hotspot with my Amazon Fire TV Stick with great results. 5 Megabits per second seems to be enough to stream HDTV with good quality to a large TV.

I also use WeBoost Drive Sleek Cradle Signal Booster to boost the Verizon signal to the iPhone 7 Plus that I am using for hot spot when areas I can get Verizon but the signal is weak. With the iPhone in the cradle and the signal booster antenna on the RV roof it improves the data quality and speed.

Here's a link to check Visible out that includes the code: Visible

Smile TOGO Roadlink

We installed the TOGO Roadlink about 2 weeks ago, install was simple but the only service provider is AT&T via a pre paid unlimited service for $360/year. We have Verizon phones that we've been using as hot spots but the last two campgrounds had no Verizon service...our TOGO worked wonderfully. We now have a wireless network that our printer and Roku can connect to and we've already used 170GB of data without a hiccup. We've also been able to change our Verizon plan so that we will save over $700 per year. The unit is $399 plus the $360 for unlimited AT&T. We still have the option of using our Verizon hot spot if needed as well.

You might consider Verizon's prepaid brand , Visible , for your back up Verizon data service. $ 40 per month for unlimited everything including hot spot data, but hot spot is rate limited to 5 megabits per second. $ 200 sign up bonus, and they sell the ZTE R2 Android smartphone to run the hotspot on for only $ 19. As a bonus, you'll have a backup phone on the Verizon network if your phone on a different network does not have coverage.

You can use the link and code in post # 11 above to save an additional $ 20.

Yes, I have a Wilson antenna and pre amp. You have to have a cell signal--there are many places where A T & T have none.
