From Sunday November 2nd, AT&T subscribers will receive even more data on the Mobile Share Value plans which allows them to access 3GB of data for USD40 per month and 6GB of data for USD70 a month (excluding access charges). This is an immediate upgrade to AT&T's earlier plans which provided only 2GB data for USD40 and 4GB data on USD70 packages. In addition, the USD40 monthly plan now features unlimited talk and text while the USD70 plan comes with Unlimited International Messaging. At present, the access free for devices on this packages is USD25.
With this latest price slash, data rates in the US are definitely heading downwards as all major operators, namely T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and AT&T itself - started reducing their data rates drastically in the last two months. What started as data doubling on packages with high data allowances (more than 15GB), including AT&T's 'Double the Data' offer, is now spreading across lower tier packages. For USD20, AT&T customers can get 300MB of data and for another USD5, they receive 1 GB of data. AT&T's Mobile Share Value plans also offer device bundling, where eligible customers can purchase a new phone with AT&T Next SM installment agreement without annual service contract or down payment. According to AT&T, qualified customers can get a new smartphone every year under the arrangement. In addition to this, AT&T is extending its earlier 'Double the Data' offer for plans from 15GB to 50GB until the 15th of this month.
