AT&T today announced that it will change its data plan allotments and pricing starting Sunday, January 22. The new smartphone plans include 300MB for $20 per month; 3GB for $30 per month; or 5GB with tethering/hotspot for $50 per month. All three reflect a $5 increase in monthly prices, but also add more data. AT&T is also adjusting the data plans available to tablets, which include 3GB for $30 per month; or 5GB for $50 per month. AT&T said that costumers may choose to stay with their existing plans, and that the $15 plan for 250MB per month will remain available.

How the Hell Would You Sell This Load of Fertilizer?

Yes, Mr/Mrs Potential Customer, We have AMAZING devices that can keep you connected, entertain you, inform you, and ALMOST replace the need to have a traditional lap/desk top.

3G/4G hotspot/tethering capabilities, Pandora in your car or at the gym, YouTube, Netflix , download thousands of data hungry applications that require a CONSTANT connection to the internet, picture/video mail, VPN capabilities, push corporate email, online gaming and so on. Feel free to use it as you would your home LAN connection through your wired ISP.

So, the customer would ask, "Pardon me, Mr AT&T Salesperson, what about this tiered data, what is a gigabyte? You say this device can flip and do tricks and do all these wonderous things but is there a catch, ...
Mr. MadFatMan,

Cell phone service is not a replacement for you home DSL, HSI, WIFI service. If you are going to be using streaming video, like netflix, or skype, and streaming music services like pandora and data intensive apps then you need the 2...

Compare Prices.

Looking at those prices, T-Mobiles $10.00 for 2 Gigabytes on a value plan looks mighty tasty.
Yes, it certainly does. 🙂. When the services works it is fast! When it doesnt it is really really slow. You get what you pay for.
That is correct but its also means w/o a phone subsidy so that HTC Amaze is going to cost you $549.99 instead of $229.99. The majority of customers will want the upfront subsidy so you should probably use the Value plan model.

200mb for $15

I thought it was 200mb for $15 not 250mb.
Anyways looks like ATT is trying to make an extra $5 for the 300mb.
It was 200 for smart phones and 250 for tablets.
Prior Smartphone plan was $15 for up to 200MB, overage rate was $15 for an additional 200 MB (even if you only went over minimally).
New is $20 for up to 300MB, overage of $20 for an additional 300 MB.

If someone had used over 200MB but under 300M...

1GB for 5 dollars more. It's OK not sure if I should change it though. I never go over my 2GBs, so I guess I won't for now.
I still have my unlimited for now, at least. Although, I would like to see them implement a throttled plan with the option of paying extra $10 per gig, if the customer chooses and wants to maintain full internet access for videos, music and app downlo...
