Dallas, Texas — August 17, 2016 — AT&T is continuing to simplify pricing with new plans that eliminate data overage charges for our wireless customers.
The new Mobile Share Advantage plans are available Aug. 21. Consumers and businesses alike can gain a wireless experience, without overage charges. Instead of overage charges, after customers use all of their high-speed data amounts, all data usage will be reduced to a maximum of 128 kbps for the rest of their bill cycle.
These new plans include all the value-added benefits of our previous Mobile Share Value plans: unlimited domestic talk and text, Rollover DataSM, sharable data, multiple international perks and mobile hotspot capability.
Mobile Share Advantage plans offer many choices and include more data at a lower cost per megabyte than some plans we offer today. New plans start at 1GB and go all the way up to 200GB.
For example, if you have 2 smartphone lines on a current Mobile Share Value 5GB plan for $100 per month, you can now get the new Mobile Share Advantage 6GB plan – 1 additional GB of data for the same price, plus no overages. If you need more data, for $20 more a month, you can get 10GB of data.
We’ve also revised our 25GB and higher plans. We now offer a new 25GB plan for $190 per month for 4 smartphone lines (previously $235 per month) and our 30GB plan is now $215 per month for 4 smartphone lines (previously $285 per month). Customers can add up to 10 lines on both plans.
Still looking for more data? We also offer 40GB, 50GB, 60GB, 80GB and 100GB Mobile Share Advantage plans. Business customers can choose from Mobile Share Advantage for Business plans. These run from 25GB to 200GB and can accommodate up to 25 lines.
With the new Mobile Share Advantage and Mobile Share Advantage for Business plans, we’re simplifying the access charge for smartphone and basic/feature phone lines.
For smartphones with no annual contract (for example, on AT&T Next, AT&T Next Every Year, or other installment agreements, Bring Your Own, purchase at full price, or month to month term), customers will pay a $20 access charge per smartphone a month for Mobile Share Advantage and $15 per smartphone line a month on Mobile Share Advantage for Business. The access charge for basic/features phones will be $20 a month per phone on both plans.
