Straight Talk do not have to worry about having their data access turned off at 1.5GB. Straight Talk seems to be attacking these rumors head on and have recently stated rather simply that they "are not cutting off data at 1.5GB on Straight Talk." The key here sounds like it is in the name though.

HTC One here in the United States. Here with the AT&T version of the HTC One, we've got 4G LTE connectivity and a device build that's essentially identical to the original international edition of the device.

Here you've got the addition of a few AT&T-specific apps so you're running right with big blue - otherwise it's all sweet!
