New AT&T Mobile Value Share Plans Cut Cost per Gigabyte
AT&T is launching new Mobile Value Share plans Aug. 15, 2015 featuring bigger Internet data allotments. More notably, prices per GB are lower.
The changes to the Mobile Share Value plans include the elimination of the current one gigabyte plan for $25, 3 GB plan for $40 and 6 GB plan for $70. Under that pricing scheme, price per GB started at $25 and dropped to $12 per GB.
Replacing those plans are a 2 GB plan for $30 and a 5 GB plan for $50. Those plans have a device attachment cost of $25 a month. Under the new plans, price per GB starts at $15 and drops to about $7 per GB.
The new 15 GB plan costs $100 per month and the 20 GB plan costs $140 per month. Both plans also now include unlimited voice calling and text messaging from the U.S. to Mexico and Canada as well as the $15 charge per smartphone.
