AT&T Chicago store (interior 001)

AT&T, the nation’s #2 wireless carrier, said yesterday that its customers can take advantage of cheaper single-line data plans. Starting today, two gigabytes of high-speed 4G data will set you back $65 per month, which represents a $15 savings compared to the cost of the previous plan. The plan includes fifty gigabytes of cloud storage as well as unlimited international messaging and calling.

An additional line can be added for $25 per month. A month ago, the carrier slashed the prices of its Mobile Share family plans…

As a nice bonus, the new plans can be combined with AT&T’s existing promotion offering a $100 bill credit to new and existing customers who add a new line of service through March 31, 2014.

AT&T also reminded us that it recently added unlimited international messaging (includes text, picture and video) to all Mobile Share Value plans for no additional cost.

The offer includes messages sent from the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to more than 190 countries for text messages and 120 countries for picture and video messages.

Also, the firm has just rolled out its new LTE Advanced network in Chicago.

AT&T’s LTE Advanced bonds two separate 4G networks using a technology called carrier aggregation to achieve a big boost in download speeds.

Three times faster LTE Advanced is also in the cards for T-Mobile.

    wait what is this 50gb storage? I have AT&T.

      I think it’s an app. I have AT&T Locker that gives me 50gb of storage. It’s not that great. It resizes some pictures and videos.

    Is it really THAT expensive in the US? I live in the Netherlands and I have an unlimited data plan (one of the few that are actually unlimited) and unlimited text messages for €20,- and I’m not even exaggerating

    • wiety

      well, i have also a d.plan similar to yours and it does not cost me more than 15e a month!

      welcome to America

      But your phone isn’t subsidized. We pay less for the phone and more per month for the service. You guys pay full price for the phone and save on the service. Ultimately you get the better deal in the long run, unless you change phones frequently.

  • Sucks for sure. Hopefully T-Mobile’s uncarrier initiative makes its way to Canada OR they further tweak their Simple Choice plans to include a certain number of minutes for international calls outside the US. Right now, those plans allow for unlimited international data AND text messages when outside the US at no extra cost

    Does this mean my existing plan will cost less automatically?

    don’t forget plus the cost of the phone…$90/month
