AT&T today announced that it will increase its data caps—and expand enforcement—on home Internet service. As a result, more customers will have to pay $10 overage charges for each 50GB they use beyond their monthly limit, similar to Comcast's data cap system.

AT&T will also let customers upgrade to unlimited data for an extra $30 a month. This is only necessary for Internet-only customers. People who purchase both AT&T Internet and TV in a bundle will get unlimited home Internet data at no extra charge. That applies to bundles with either DirecTV satellite or AT&T's wireline U-verse TV system.

More strict enforcement, but higher caps with an unlimited option. Mine will go from 250 (never enforced) to 600. That should be more than adequate for most.

Nice unlimited option, and added for free for customers with an internet/tv customer (uverse or Directv)

Yippee, I'll STILL never see Uverse in my lifetime(or the lifetime of my children) where i currently live. I'm posting this using AT&T 6.0 Fast DSL.

If we ever get Data Caps here (Comcast) I hope to have 1TB, last month we went over 600GB mostly because of 4K Streaming ( had the new TV delivered in March, also turned on the PS4 for the first time in weeks this morning and it had a bunch of game updates, Star Wars Battlefront was 7GBs alone, caps should be minimum 1TB based on today's world.

In the same boat at my new home. Nobody around except Sat, and Windstream. We're stuck with Windstream. May be the worst I've seen as far as broadband goes. If you can call them that.

Never thought I'd say I can't wait for Comcast to finish up this build out
