AT&T on Thursday introduced new billing options for tablets in which customers can choose between new postpaid options or the companys existing prepaid billing plans.
AT&T said customers can purchase prepaid and postpaid plans of 250 MB of monthly usage for $14.99 or 2 GB for $25. Customers who purchase the postpaid 2 GB plan and exceed their monthly data usage will be charged $10 per 1 GB of overage.
Both options are month-to-month and therefore do not require a long-term commitment. AT&T said the plans can be added to customers existing monthly wireless statement.
Dallas-based AT&T warned that the offer is limited and the plans are not suitable for corporate e-mail or Intranet systems.
The new postpaid billing option will be available across the companys retail locations and through att.com, Best Buy, Frys, select Nexom locations and Wal-Mart stores nationwide.
AT&T released the new billing options as it prepares to compete with Verizon Wireless for iPad 2 customers. The popular tablet made by Apple will start shipping on March 11 in the United States.
