AT&T is doing more to attract new prepaid customers and keep its existing ones happy.
AT&T GoPhone customers will have access to new smartphone plans with more data that also allow customers to use their smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot. The plans, which will be available beginning on April 25, will also have unlimited text and unlimited international text from the U.S. to more than 100 countries.
For $60 a month, customers will now get 2.5 GB of data, Wi-Fi hotspot capability and unlimited talk. For $40 a month, they get 500 MB of data and 500 minutes of talk. And available solely at Wal-Mart stores is a plan with 1 GB of data and unlimited talk for $45 a month.
Existing GoPhone customers on the $60 and $40 plans will automatically receive the increased data amount.
“Today’s consumers expect great value and choice, which is exactly what we’re bringing to our GoPhone customers,” said Mark Collins, AT&T Mobility senior vice president of data and voice products. “By adding more data and enabling a Wi-Fi hotspot capability at no additional cost and with no annual contract, we’re giving customers more for less and making it even easier for them to enjoy their smartphones the way they want – all on a superior, reliable network.”
