So I have this plan. And use it mostly in rural California,Nevada and Utah. I find that my iPhone and a LTE router with ATT is often better in these areas. But when T-Mobile signal is strong, it works well. For sure a case where having options makes sense. Sadly, no one combination of cell providers and equipment is always the best.

AT&T also has a similar plan for $55 a month, but one of my best plans is an AT&T tablet plan for $20 a month.

Camper I do think you get 100gb of lte speed with those plans with no slow down at least not if the plan was purchased in the last 2 years. Most will slow down after 20gig.

The best point is that this works in a 5G hotspot or the wineguard products.

Also yes not all carriers are equal in coverage for my needs it has worked everywhere I have been.

I agree. That plan is a great deal. I have it in an Android tablet. It's a pity it's basically a secret unless you hear about it and know what to ask for. Even if you go through the motions of buying a tablet from AT&T, it doesn't seem to offer you the $20 plan.

This 100 GB plan is advertised as intended for tablets as well as hotspots. Why would anyone pay $55 for 100 GB when they can get unlimited for $20?

Because "unlimited" isn't.

Just looked a the att plan the biggest differences I see is they will not allow a suspension of the line during times of non use and if you go over they will charge you.

The best option would be is Verizon had a similar options for me there network is better.

Note that newer (manufactured in 2020 or later) Winegard units support T-Mobile but earlier units apparently only barely support AT&T & Verizon (and do not have the band coverage necessary to get good service from T- Mobile.) In fact the pre-2020 units look pretty ancient.

I got the Togo unit in 2019 inserted the T-Mobile sim and came directly on line. They have released some firmware updates but your unit needs to be supported.

A T-Mobile SIM will work in the earlier Winrgard ConnecT units because two of the common T-Mobile bands (2 and 4) are supported, so in many cases the unit will be able to register and operate on one of those bands with reasonable performance. But in many markets and rural areas you will be severely limited without band 12, 66, and 71 support. As far as I understand the pre-2020 units utilized different hardware and cannot be updated to support the expanded band coverage of the later units.

The Winegard Togo Roadlink C2 is listed as supporting LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 13, and 17 so it seems to be the same as the pre-2020 ConnecT 2.0 in that it will work only in T-Mo areas with band 2/4 support.

I know there is really no such thing as "unlimited" but plenty of people report doing several hundreds of GB per month on the $20 tablet plan. If you want something for a tablet where you might use lots of data, it's a much much better deal than $55 for 100 GB.

I've read a lot about the AT&T $20 tablet plan but don't have one myself. What gymnastics if any do you need to do to use it? Can you just pop it in a hotspot or router with no other action and get unlimited data or do you need to spoof TTL or some other technique? I also read that AT&T capped hotspot usage at 10 GB for new accounts (as of late last year) but that may only apply if you are using the hotspot function of a tablet(?)
