AT&T will now offer an unlimited plan to all of its wireless customers, not just those who purchase some of the company's video products. The plan clocks in at $180 per month for four lines. A single connection will run you $100 a month.

The catch: Customers who use more than 22 gigabytes of data might see their connection speeds slowed down "during periods of network congestion," the company said.

Why this matters: We are once again living in the age of the unlimited plan. AT&T is the last of the four major wireless carriers to offer a standalone unlimited option. Verizon announced its own this week.

Between the lines: AT&T and Verizon both dropped their unlimited offers years ago, even as smartphone usage became the norm. But the wireless industry's plans are becoming increasingly competitive to woo customers in the saturated U.S. market — with T-Mobile breathing down the neck of the two big carriers — so the unlimited plan is back on the table.

The silver linings of online school

Online learning can be frustrating for students, teachers and parents, but some methods are working.

The big picture: Just as companies are using this era of telework to try new things, some principals, teachers and education startups are treating remote learning as a period of experimentation, too.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton both are slated to speak on the Wednesday of the Democratic convention — Aug. 19 — four sources familiar with the planning told Axios.

Why it matters: That's the same night Joe Biden's running mate (to be revealed next week) will address the nation. Clinton and Warren represent two of the most influential wise-women of Democratic politics with the potential to turn out millions of establishment and progressive voters in November.
