AT&T Announces Massive 30-50GB Mobile Shared Data Plans

by

AT&T today unveiled three new shared data plans aimed at businesses, offering 30GB, 40GB, and 50GB of data, along with unlimited calls and texts.

The plans, which begin at $300, also come alongside new Mobile Share - Data only and Business Pooled Nation for Data plans for business customers.

The new plans make it even easier and more affordable to work or play on the go, whether that be taking mobile payments, controlling inventory, downloading videos, managing fleets, or navigating unfamiliar streets.

attplansFor consumers, AT&T's new plans are limited to 10 devices. Businesses can add 15 devices for 30GB plans, 20 devices for 40GB plans, and 25 devices for 50GB plans.

Additional devices, such as iPads and basic phones, can be added for an extra monthly fee, and AT&T also requires the same $30 per smartphone that customers must pay for other data plans. A 50GB plan with 10 smartphones would run approximately $800 per month or $1250 per month for 25 smartphones.

As for Mobile Share - Data, businesses and consumers can now purchase data only plans for tablets and laptops that range from 4GB to 50GB ($30 to $335 per month), and with Business Pooled Nation for Data, businesses in need of more than 25 devices are able to purchase data buckets from 300MB to 10GB.

Previously, AT&T's plans maxed out at 20GB of data for $200 per month.

I'm sure by "Massive" you mean the price?

I don't understand carriers. Why not just competitively price unlimited data?

Considering that it's only $30 for unlimited data with no throttling on Sprint, and on AT&T a few years ago, this is pretty ridiculous.

I'm amazed you Yanks stand for this sort of thing. It's not unusual for us humble, buck-toothed Brits to get unlimited data, unlimited texts and unlimited talktime for an average of £35-40 a month (about $60). And that's with paying about £60 upfront for the iPhone 5, so it's not exactly like you're paying through the nose.

I appreciate all carriers are thieving immoral bastards, but you guys seem to have it a lot worse than we do. Is there something I'm missing, or do we have it just as bad? :o

It all comes down to tea.

It's a little-known fact that Verizon and AT&T are owned by the British Royal Family. They use this absurd pricing scheme as punishment for us breaking away back in the late 1700s. I wish they'd just get over it - it's been more than two centuries, after all - but man that Queen Elizabeth can sure hold a grudge!
