Att announced today that it is ending its unlimited iphone data plans for $30 a month, introducing new plans for new customers on June 7th, 2010:
DataPlus -- Provides 200 megabytes (MB) of data. for example, enough to send/receive 1,000 emails (no attachments), plus send/receive 150 emails with attachments, plus view 400 Web pages, plus post 50 photos on social media sites, plus watch 20 minutes of streaming video
DataPro -- Provides 2 gigabytes (GB) of data. for example, enough to send/receive 10,000 emails (no attachments), plus send/receive 1,500 emails with attachments, plus view 4,000 Web pages, plus post 500 photos to social media sites, plus watch 200 minutes of streaming video
This is terrible news for new customers.
Thankfully existing contracts are not effected, and Att is "generously" offering to allow existing contracts to chose this new plan with no contract extensions.
New plans cost $25 a month for the DataPro and $15 for DataPlus.
Att has announced it is also ending the unlimited iPad data plans.
$30 for unlimited data with an existing plan, or $25 for limited?
Each 1 gigabyte over costs a user $10 and Att will send a txt to a device nearing the monthly limit.
