The question of which AT&T plan will be the best for your family is not obvious. Depending on how big your family is and what your family likes to do while they're at home, the right option for your family can vary.
If your large family prefers to watch a streaming video over regular TV using the internet, because of the high speeds and limitless bandwidth it offers, the Internet 1000 plan is possibly the best choice.
On the other hand, if they are cautious about their internet use around the end of the month, a smaller family or an individual may be able to avoid the Internet 300 plan's bandwidth limit.
Some families, however, prefer access to TV channels instead of the equivalents of internet streams. The topic of internet use is instrumental for these families.
The larger the family, the more likely it is that a hybrid plan would be a better option than a TV-centric plan, given that at least some of the time everybody in the family uses the internet.
For a mid-sized family that prefers the TV to the internet but also wants reliable internet access at reasonable speeds, the Internet and U-300 plan is a perfect option. There's only one package that provides it as part of the regular bundle if you want your family to have a landline.
The TV-centric plans, on the other hand, are the way to go if your family does not use the internet so much. The U-verse 450 package has the largest programming range if you have a variety of people in different age groups because it is the most likely to satisfy everyone equally.

For true live TV junkies, the U-450 is also the most attractive option, but other internet plans could also do the trick for families with narrower TV interests.
On the other hand, the simple U-Family package has a decent range at a lower price if you only watch non-premium television channels.
For families who already have internet streaming services packages that they use to catch shows that would otherwise need access to premium channels, this makes the U-Family bundle preferable.
