AT&T will no longer charge overage fees for customers on its revised plans when they go live later this month.
The introduction of AT&T’s Mobile Share Advantage plans will eliminate overage fees beginning August 21. Customers on these revised plans will be able to go over their monthly allotment of data without harm, but there sure is a catch. AT&T is going to move data speeds down from 4G LTE standards to a sluggish 128kbps.
Although the throttled data speed is borderline useless, it’s better than seeing your monthly bill from AT&T be a surprise because you couldn’t stay within the limits you pay for. AT&T charges $15 per gigabyte when you do so; therefore, now you can go over your limit and consider whether or not you really want to drop $15 to stay up to speed on the carrier’s 4G LTE network.
Here’s the AT&T Mobile Share Advantage pricing layout:
- 1GB for $30 per month
- 3GB for $40 per month
- 6GB for $60 per month
- 10GB for $80 per month
- 16GB for $90 per month
- 25GB for $110 per month
- 30GB for $135 per month
All of the plans include and unlimited talk, text, and AT&T’s Rollover Data. Even better is that they include unlimited text from the United States to over 120 countries worldwide.
Just keep in mind AT&T isn’t getting rid of its access charge of $20 per smartphone per month.
The new Mobile Share Advantage plan’s will be live for consumers and businesses on August 21.
