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 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, 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.) 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 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
