We have communicated directly with Net Buddy, and they claim to have a direct reseller relationship with AT&T with the plans being on AT&T's prepaid network. This means there is no domestic or international roaming included.
As with all third party resellers on these no-contract plans, consider the carrier and service could be changed or terminated with little notice.
Net Buddy offers unlimited, AT&T based data for $60/month on a dedicated data only device. It does not include any voice or texting service.

Out of Stock: Net Buddy has been showing out of stock since around February 2019. We have written them several times and they have let us know they are focusing on existing customers and hope to have stock back 'sometime'.
In the meantime, reseller OTRMobile offers a very similar plan at the same price - and they do have stock. They also offer our members a discount.
