AT&T today announced it is doing away with tiered data plans, instead opting for its mobile share plans. This decision was one of many that the Death Star made, including changing choices for individuals as they now have to sign up for unlimited voice and text.
For those of you who have a family plan, this change isn’t new as it reflects what you’ve been paying for all along. Unfortunately, individual subscribers are the ones who get the shaft here; they no longer get to choose a cheap, low minute plan anymore.
Now everyone is stuck using AT&T’s Mobile Share plans, which isn’t the most consumer-friendly plans on the market. Users can expect to pay around 100 bucks a line, and that’s without added services like insurance. The new plans go in effect October 25. So we shouldn’t have to stress how important it is for folks who’ve been on the fence with getting AT&T’s service — get it now before these tiered plans go bye-bye.
