AT&T cell phone service reviews

AT&T Review 2017  July 18, 2020 – 08:53 am
Ranking the best wireless

AT&T has been playing second fiddle to Verizon for years, always one step behind its biggest rival. It doesn’t quite have the best network coverage, for example, but it easily nabs second place. Its speeds don’t average as high, but they’re still dependable and outpace every other contender. The one area it does better than Verizon in is price, but even there AT&T lags behind the competition, charging $5 more per month than T-Mobile for the same data allocation.

Coverage & Quality

AT&T’s network is very, very good. It offers coast-to-coast coverage in both urban and rural regions, with few dropped calls and fewer lost texts. Its speeds are impressive and consistent: 84 percent of RootMetrics’ tested localities get 10 Mbps or faster speeds, no small feat when you’re considering rural as well as urban areas. Even its LTE footprint is solid, since virtually all its covered areas get strong LTE service.

Most people won’t notice the difference between AT&T’s coverage and Verizon’s best-in-class cell phone service. Both are nearly universal, with noticeable gaps only in the most rural parts of the country, and both offer reliable uptime and consistent speeds. Verizon takes the edge cases that AT&T doesn’t; second place is second place.

Pricing & Fees

AT&T’s network is slightly inferior to Verizon’s, so it stands to reason that its prices would be lower. An individual plan is $55 for 2GB of data and unlimited talk and text. Not including the price of a new smartphone, that comes out to $1, 320 for two years of service. It’s pretty good, considering the quality of coverage you can enjoy, but it’s far from the cheapest cell phone plan available.

Family plans are rather pricey. You can get four lines and 15GB of shared data between them for $160 per month. Data overages are charged rather than throttled, so you pay $15 for each additional gigabyte per month instead of simply seeing your speeds slow down. There’s a $15 activation fee for new lines and a $35 restocking fee if you buy a phone from AT&T and decide to return it within the grace period.

Factoring in network coverage, features and support, AT&T’s value for money is about on par with Verizon. Individual plans are slightly cheaper, but then, the network is a bit more constricting. The result’s a wash – if coverage is important to you and you don’t live in the boonies, AT&T could save you some cash.

Plan Features

AT&T doesn’t offer an unlimited data plan unless you're a DirecTV customer, but it is one of two providers with data rollover. If you don’t use your entire data allocation one month, AT&T attaches whatever’s left to the end of the following month’s allocation. There are a couple caveats, of course – the rollover data only stays around one month, and you don’t dip into it until you completely drain your primary allocation. Still, it’s a welcome extra on every plan.

If you have friends or family in other countries, the company’s international cell phone plans are among the best, simply because they’re cheap. For $5 a month, you can get unlimited calling to Canada and Mexico and reduced per-minute rates to the rest of the world. Calling internationally is still an option without the plan, but you may rack up connection fees in the process.
