“Not to be outdone by Verizon, AT&T is bumping its subscription rates — and data caps — across the board,” Kyle Wiggers reports for Digital Trends. “On Wednesday, AT&T announced Mobile Share Advantage, a new rollout of postpaid plans that’ll see prices slightly climb while data allotments rise accordingly.”
“AT&T’s least expensive, lowest-tier plan now starts at $30 a month — $10 more than before — but nets you 1GB, a jump from the previous offering’s 300MB,” Wiggers reports. “Unlimited calls and texts in the U.S. are in tow, too, and line access charges — the fees for adding additional devices — have been standardized. Adding a device to a plan, which was $15 for larger data plans and $25 for smaller ones, is now a flat $20.”
“T-Mobile and Sprint eliminated overages more than a year ago,” Wiggers reports. “A few of AT&T’s other new terms are generally advantageous, too. The carrier is rolling out tweaked data tiers that, in most cases, offer 20 percent more data than the old ones: a $40 tier with 3GB of data, a $60 tier with 6GB, a $90 tier with 16GB, a $110 tier with 25GB, and a $135 plan with 30GB. The pricing of the latter two plans, in fact, has actually been reduced.”
