AT&T's GoPhone Intros Unlimited Slow Plan
AT&T today made one of its postpaid plans available via its GoPhone prepaid brand. The new AT&T GoPhone Unlimited service plan costs $60 per month and offers unlimited everything at reduced speeds. The plan includes maximum download data rates of just 3Mbps, with video capped at 480p standard resolution and limited to streams of 1.5Mbps. This is similar to the Unlimited Choice plan AT&T rolled out to its postpaid customers last month. AT&T said GoPhone Unlimited customers who exceed 22 GB of data in a given billing period may see their data speeds reduced when the network is congested. Alternately, GoPhone customers can select a new offer that includes unlimited talk and text with 6 GB of high-speed data for $40 per month. Customers who exceed the 6 GB limit in a 30-day period will have their speeds reduced to 128kbps for the remainder of the billing cycle. Both plans include free roaming in Canada and Mexico. AutoPay and paperless billing are required to get these $60 and $40 plan prices. The new GoPhone plans are available starting today. Last, GoPhone is offering $20 off select smartphones through April 20.
