GoPhone brand. The first plan they introduced comes with unlimited data and is somewhat similar to the Unlimited Choice plan the carrier offered to AT&T customers two weeks ago. Meanwhile, the second plan they introduced today comes with 6GB of data.
AT&T GoPhone Unlimited Plan
When you sign up for AutoPay, you can get unlimited data for only $60 per month. Without AutoPay the plan us $65 per month. According to the announcement made by AT&T, the plan already includes unlimited talk, text and data usage with a maximum speed of 3Mbps. Video streaming is at 480p but if you use over 22GB of data in a month, it will be slowed down during network congestion. Hotspot is not allowed.
As a bonus, the plan includes calls and texts in and between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada without additional charges.
This new unlimited plan replaces AT&T GoPhone's currently available $60 ($55 with autopay) per month plan. Plan users under this $60 plan are exempted from this new regulation and may keep their plan as they wish.
New 6GB Plan
In addition to the new Unlimited Plan, AT&T also increased the amount of high speed data included with its $45 ($40 with AutoPay) GoPhone plan. Under this plan, you can get unlimited talk, text and data usage with the first 6GB at 4G LTE speeds. Once you use more in excess of the allotted data, the speed will drop to 128 Kbps. Any unused data can be rolled over to the next month's cycle. Hotspot is still included with the $45 plan.
The plan now also includes calls and texts in and between the US, Mexico, and Canada. Call, text and data roaming is included in Mexico and Canada.
Both plan changes are expected to go live today. You can also add or remove lines without a penalty since all AT&T GoPhone monthly plans are equipped with Multi-Line discounts.
For a limited time, AT&T is running a promotion where they are giving $20 off on select smartphones. This offer expires on April 20th so make sure you visit their website for more information.
