AT&T Increases Capacity and Price of Its Data Plans

by Reads (4,584)

AT&T is re-configuring its data plans for smartphone users. Next week, new customers will have to pay more for data service, but they’ll also get more capacity.

AT&T LogoStarting on Sunday, new subscribers will have to pay $20 a month for 300MB of data, or $30 a month for 3GB. Previously, its offerings were 200MB for $15 or 2GB for $25.

A 5GB data plan is going to cost $50 a month, replacing a ‘4GB for $45’ plan. Beyond that, customers will pay $10 for every gigabyte they go over their monthly allotment.  

AT&T will not force its current subscribers to switch to these new plans, but they might consider doing so, as the cost/MB is lower.

The carrier stopped offering an unlimited data plan to new customers in 2010, although those who signed up for one years ago can still use it. AT&T does throttle the data speed of the top users on this plan.
