AT&T Announces New International Data Plans
AT&T announced new international roaming plans yesterday. Starting today, AT&T is offering two international data plans that offer discounts on data in 67 countries (or so they claim). The cheapest plan is available for an additional $119.99/month and adds 100MB of international data to your iPhone, and the other is $199.00 for 200MB. This is in addition to the 20MB and 50BM international data plans currently available.
“AT&T has worked diligently to provide affordable options for international roaming because the feature-rich mobile experience of iPhone is indispensable to users,” said Bill Hague, executive vice president of International for AT&T’s wireless operations. “With these new international data plans, iPhone users can access more data in more countries for less cost.”
AT&T notes that the alternative to the plans is very expensive for someone who uses a lot of data. “Just 2 MB of data use at pay-per-use data rates of $0.0195 per kilobyte would cost almost $40, making these new plans very valuable for customers traveling outside the U.S.”
