Tablet pricing starts with AT&T DataConnect 250MB coming for $15, 3GB at $30 and 5GB for $50
AT&T has revised its data plans and hike prices, which will be effective from January 22.
As per the increased rates, 3GB of data will cost $30 per month, up from $25 per month, while 300MB of data will cost $20 per month.
Tablet pricing starts with AT&T DataConnect 250MB coming for $15, 3GB at $30 and 5GB for $50.
However, AT&T’s plans are comparatively cheaper than its rival, Verizon, whose cheapest plan stands at $30 for 2GB of data.
Currently AT&T customers pay $15 for 200MB per month and $25 for 2GB per month.
This will impact customers picking up newer smartphones which require huge volumes of data, increasing their operating costs.
Existing customers can stick to the current plan if they already find it too expensive.
AT&T Mobility chief marketing officer David Christopher said that the new pricing structure was driven by the increasing demand in a highly competitive environment and customers would surely derive value out of it.
"Customers are using more data than ever before," said Christopher.
