If you’ve been exploring broadcasting from the field, you’ve probably come across UnlimitedIRL.
H/T @xXBE4STXx for the original post, UnlimitedIRL is a Scam and here is how you can get a unlimted [sic] data plan for only 30$ to stream IRL, the full text of which I have archived and presented below:
after researching for data plans to use for IRL streaming, I want to share with you guys what I have found.
UnlimitedIRL is a well known company to sell solutions for IRL streaming. But they are reselling data plans at unreasonable high cost (139$ for AT&T and 189$ for Verizon). As a small streamer these plans are just unaffordable to me.Instead, I have found out that you can buy the Data Plans directly from the mobile providers! A lot of resellers like Netbuddy are just reselling the AT&T Data Connect Pass or the iPad Data Plan. I will now explain how you can get cheaper data plans for IRL streaming and end this scam!
Unlimited 30$ AT&T data plan:
To get the Data Connect Pass (iPad plan), which costs 30$ per month, you need an IMEA number from an iPad and an unactivated AT&T sim card.
To buy the plan you have to go on https://www.att.com/ipadlanding and register with your IMEA number and Sim Card. On r/NoContract/ you can look for more information.

Unlimited 65$ Verizon data plan:
This is an easier to setup alternative, but costs double the price. (still half the price of UnlimtedScam). Also this plan is depriotized. This means you can get low speeds at high congestion. But what speed tests have shown is that it has no effect on the upload speed. You can find the data plan, called Tablet & Jetpack plan, at https://www.verizonwireless.com/prepaid/ (Scroll to the bottom).
