AT&T announced today new lower pricing for their wireless data plans. You can pick either a $15 per month entry plan or a $25 per month plan with 10 times more data.
Current AT&T smartphone customers are not required to switch to the new plans, but can choose to do so without a contract extension.
What AT&T does here is limit the bandwidth usage to 2GB. AT&T says 98% of their customers use less than 2GB per month. Looks like AT&T wants to take out the 2% of users that are "bandwidth hogs".

For new iPad customers, the $25 per month 2GB plan will replace the existing $29.99 unlimited plan.
Apple iPad customers will continue to pre-pay for their wireless data plan and no contract is required. Existing iPad customers who have the $29.99 per month unlimited plan can keep that plan or switch to the new $25 per month plan with 2GB of data.

The good news, AT&T will finally offer tethering for the iPhone. It will cost you though $20 per month.

The new wireless data plans, including a new tethering option, will be available beginning June 7. Current AT&T voice and texting plans are unchanged.
