AT&T unveils cheaper no contract plans
AT&T has announced that it has some new shared value data plans for customers that meet certain criteria. The new Mobile Share Value plans will be available starting on December 8 for new and existing wireless customers with consumer or business accounts. The plans also offer no annual contract options.
The no annual service contract options are for smartphone customers and will let them save $15 monthly on mobile Share Value Plans. To receive the discount the user needs to either bring their own smartphone to AT&T, use a smartphone that is already paid for, or get a new smartphone with no down payment on AT&T Next.
Once the user's existing AT&T smartphone is no longer under contract, it will be eligible for the new value plans. Consumers will be able to add up to ten devices to one account. Business users can link up to 25 devices depending on the plan.
The least expensive plan is a $45 monthly plan that gives unlimited talk and text along with 300MB of data. Plans with more data are available offering up to 50GB of shared data. All plans have unlimited talk and text. All of the plans also include access to all AT&T hotspots at no cost.
“With our new Mobile Share Value Plans, customers don’t have to compromise,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility. “Our new no contract option lets customers add a smartphone to the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network at a lower monthly cost. Customers want great value and a premium network - and now they can save more and get unlimited talk, text and data to share.”
