Close to half of AT&T customers with unlimited plans could save $10 a month by switching to a metered plan, Consumer Reports says.

Consumer Reports came to that conclusion after analyzing usage data provided to by Validas, a company that tracks wireless data coverage.

The data suggests that about 48 percent of AT&T unlimited-plan subscribers, who pay $30 a month for their data service, use no more than 300 megabytes of data a month, on average.


AT&T’s 300 MByte-a-month data plan costs $20 a month. So subscribers who use little data could save more than $100 a year by switching to it. That is probably true, unless usage grows. And it would be an odd user that did not find gradually-increasing usage, over time.
