(David Paul Morris/Bloomberg News)The nation's biggest wireless carriers are making it a bit harder to keep your grandfathered unlimited data plan. The two moves, which were reported previously by DSL Reports and Ars Technica, make grandfathered plans less attractive to the small group of subscribers who have them. For years, carriers have been pushing customers to abandon unlimited plans and shift to plans with data caps and overage charges, which allow carriers to make more money. While grandfathered unlimited plans appear to be under sustained assault, that doesn't necessarily mean the unlimited plan is dead. The calculation for consumers is whether their old unlimited plan is still a better deal.
