AT&T Offers 18-Month Device Financing Option
In conjunction with its new Mobile Share Value Plans, AT&T, added a new AT&T Next plan that has an 18-month device upgrade option rather than a 12-month upgrade cycle. According to AT&T, the value proposition behind the new plan is lower monthly payments for the device. The payments are spread out over a period of 26 months and let customers upgrade to new devices every 18 months for no down payment, no upgrade fee, no activation fee, and no financing fee. The new 18-month AT&T Next plan will be available beginning December 8. Customers who choose to finance their device with an AT&T Next plan will also enjoy a $15 monthly savings on the cost of their service.
