Starting tomorrow June 1st, international travelers on AT&T will be paying less for their data service while overseas. The wireless carrier announced today that it’s lowering the prices of its global data plans which will now be tiered as follows:
- 120 MB for $30 monthly (down from 125 MB for $49 monthly)
- 300 MB for $60 monthly (down from 275 MB for $99 monthly)
- 800 MB for $120 monthly (down from 800 MB for $199 monthly)
Travelers should consult AT&T’s rate calculator before they jump on the plane. Savvy customers will take the time to compare AT&T’s prices to those offered by the local carriers at their destination. Sometimes, it’s cheaper to get a prepaid SIM from a local carrier, than it is to add a global plan to an existing AT&T account. If you stick with AT&T, customers should keep a close eye on their consumption to avoid costly overages.
