Tonight AT&T started to contact AT&T home internet subscribers who also have DIRECTV NOW to inform them they will now get unlimited home internet for free. Typically, unlimited home internet costs $30 a month. (AT&T home internet customers are limited to 1 TB of data a month unless they pay an extra $30 a month.)
Part of the email AT&T sent to subscribers today stated, “Good news about your Internet service! Because you also added DIRECTV NOW℠ to your Internet service, we’re giving you unlimited home Internet data at no additional cost.”
This move gives AT&T’s DIRECTV NOW streaming service a significant leg up over the competition. If you have Sling TV or Hulu for live TV streaming, you will be subject to a 1TB a month data cap. AT&T’s DIRECTV NOW service will give you unlimited data saving you $30 a month if you go over the 1TB cap.
AT&T is also likely rolling out unlimited home internet for their streaming customers in preparation for their DIRECTV streaming services. Now fear of going over your data cap is no longer a reason to stick with DIRECTV satellite. You can now move over to one of AT&T’s streaming services without fear of a data cap.
To get this deal, you likely need your AT&T home internet (fiber or DSL) and your DIRECTV NOW subscription to both list the same home address.
Update: AT&T reached out to Cord Cutters News to clarify that AT&T home internet subscribers who also have DIRECTV NOW can get this deal as long as both have the same home address.
