The carrier wars continue, as today AT&T has announced a fresh batch of offers for its GoPhone customers. Highlighting today’s news is a $60 per month unlimited data plan. This is an excellent value for pre-paid customers looking to stream worry-free without locking into a burdensome contract. Even better? You can grab 6GB of high speed data for $40 per month. It’s important to note that you’ll need to sign-up for auto-pay to lock in the discounted monthly pricing in both instances.
AT&T is, of course, instituting a few limits on its “unlimited data”. Customers will be able to stream at a max speed of 3Mbps, with transfers slowing down when monthly usage tops 22GB. AT&T promises that this will only occur during peak network congestion, not consistently once that limit is reached. Multi-line discounts are also still available for GoPhone customers alongside a limited $20 off promotion on select smartphone devices include iPhone 5.
Today’s news is just the latest in a string of moves by carriers to attract new customers from the competition. Pre-paid plans continue to be one of our favorite alternatives for service, as networks have dramatically improved in recent years and the competition is fierce for new customers. More details on today’s announcement can be found here.
Customers who are still looking for a plan without an annual contract or credit check but don’t need unlimited data can select the AT&T GoPhone plan of 6GB for only $40 a month after AutoPay. On this plan you’ll get unlimited talk, text and data usage with the first 6GB at high-speed data – 50% more data than previously available – with speeds reduced to 128Kbps if you exceed 6GB during your plan cycle. You also have the ability to rollover unused data to the next month. This plan includes calls and texts in and between the US, Mexico and Canada, as well as call, text and data roaming in Mexico and Canada.
