How to Keep Unlimited U-Verse Data After Switching to DIRECTV NOW


Last year AT&T announced that if you subscribe to DIRECTV satellite TV service you could get unlimited data. Typically AT&T Uverse and AT&T DSL customers face data caps anywhere from 300GB to 1TB a month.

We recently received several messages from readers who are surprised to see after switching from DIRECTV satellite TV they are once again facing data caps. Several have already reported they are going over their 1TB data caps.

The good news is there is an option to be a DIRECTV NOW subscriber and still have the same internet without a data cap. All you have to do is switch to Toast.net. They work with AT&T and use the same lines to give you the same Internet without the data cap.

Recently I started looking a different options for cord cutters to keep unlimited data. After talking with Toast.net, Cord Cutters News teamed up with it to help our readers escape AT&T’s data cap. (I view data caps as the number 1 threat to cord cutting.)

Toast.net offers high speed Internet in 20 states, and it comes to you through the same AT&T Internet system as it would if you went through AT&T.

So why pick Toast.net over AT&T?

  • No data caps
  • Stream all you want
  • US-based customer service on the phone and online chat
  • Supports Cord Cutters News
  • They do not try to sell you bundles
  • Internet speeds up to 75 Mbps down (Speeds vary depending on market.)
  • Plans for both residential and business customers with no data caps

The best part is if you have AT&T Internet Toast.net can help you move over to Toast.net to allow you to enjoy all the streaming you could ever want.

Not an AT&T customer but want data cap-free Internet? Toast.net will be happy to help you. Go to Toast.net and click the Check Availability button. Enter your address, and it will let you know if it is available in your area.

So let’s support companies who support cord cutting!

    When I went to drop Uverse TV, I was told the Internet 24 plan would cost about $80 by itself and would have a 1 Terabyte data cap. Then they suggested I could get rid of the cap by subscribing to Uverse basic TV (just SD local channels) for $30 and getting bundled Internet 24 for $50. Same price, no cap. Ridiculous but true.

      When I dropped it, they raised it to Internet 24 at the same price as Internet 18 but I do still have the data cap but I’m single and haven’t reached 1024GB yet. Sounds like a pretty good deal on your end tho.

    Don’t go to Comcast unless you want to pay $200 plus just for basic. I don’t have movie or sports package and I get charged that much just because I have cable phone and internet with them.
