    For one smartphone:
    $45/mo – 300MB
    $95/mo – 4GB
    $105/mo – 6GB

    It’s like they’re not even trying. Who in their right mind would pay that when AT&T’s own AIO offers $70/7GB plans and GoPhone offers $60/2GB? Not to mention the non-officially sanctioned MVNOs that offer even cheaper AT&T service.

      I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been shopping around for providers (leaving Verizon, which isn’t much better) and was appalled at AT&T’s pricing. While the new pricing is a marginal improvement, they clearly aren’t *actually* trying for individual or contract-free customers.

      well i thought because AIO and GoPhone uses a lower service tier so even though it is on the same network it is slower/capped than the plain ATT LTE network?

      • mortodestructo

        GoPhone runs at the same speeds, but AIO is throttled (4mbps for HSPA and 8mbps for LTE, IIRC). Of course, both are capped and throttled thereafter, but at least you don’t run the risk of expensive overages.

      Sadly these plans aren’t really a good deal unless you have multiple lines. Otherwise like you said prepaid is a much better option in many cases.

      I think the intention is for those that share data on one plan, I currently have At&t and still have the older individual plan for two lines. This new value plan actually comes out cheaper since my girlfriend doesn’t use too much of the data.

    Looks like T-Mobile is actually forcing change in the mobile industry. T-mobile’s prices are still quite a bit cheaper, but it looks like a lot of people are going to be able to save cash on AT&T if they choose to let their contracts expire and buy off-contract devices.

    I am glad other carriers are implementing the lower prices if you bring your own device or pay full retail. Glad to see TMO is shaking up the industry and can only imagine verizon will soon announce something similar to what ATT just created (which won’t be a great deal to customers, but better than the current plan prices)

    I been 10 months on an AT&T MVNO $45/month for unlimited calls, text and 2GB/month. I average not much many months like 100-200MB/month but some months trip over 1GB if Wifi is not available in a hotel. My service is excellent, I get get good coverage, I average 6Mbit download.

    I would like to pay less than $45/month.

    Why on earth would any sane person go with AT&T at these prices?

    USA prices are high. In UK I visited for a month and for the type of usage I have I pay $10/month. Its $20/month for unlimited everything.

    AT&T customer service blows.
