What you need to know
- AT&T's new Unlimited Your Way plans offer flexibility for family plan subscribers.
- These now allow you to mix and match various unlimited plans for individual members in a family plan.
- You'll get the lowest prices at 5 lines or more with plans starting at $150 combined on the lowest tier.
AT&T will now let subscribers to its family plan combine any of its Unlimited Wireless plans for individual members. It's a program called AT&T Unlimited Your Way. Previously, the carrier would have you keep the same plan for all members, but now you can pay a little or a little less depending on what each individual member of your family wants.
There are three plans on offer, the Unlimited Elite with up to 100GB of 'premium' data for $45 (if you have five lines), the $35 Unlimited Extra plan with up to 50GB of 'premium' data, and the $30 Unlimted Starter with up to 30GB of 'premium' data. The pricing varies if you have more or fewer lines active though, with 5 or more being the lowest pricing the carrier offers. All these plans are 5G compatible, so you'd be able to use them with the new 5G phones that are out in 2020 (though you may not notice much speed difference a the moment.

Everyone has different data needs, these plans offer the choice for the parents to have higher data allowances while giving lower data caps to younger family members, or even the other way round.
