AT&T makes sharing 10GB of data a month less expensive
AT&T announced on Saturday, that it is lowering the cost of buying 10GB of data to use with its Mobile Share plan. Starting tomorrow, those with two lines can get unlimited talk, text and share 10GB of data for $130 a month. Three lines will cost you $145, four lines runs $160 and five lines (can you see the pattern here) is $175. You can get from 6 to 10 lines by adding $15 for each additional line.

AT&T 's new rates for its 10GB Mobile Share make it competitive against its three major rivals. While T-Mobile charges $10 less for two lines, AT&T is cheaper if you have 3 or more lines. The biggest savings, as you might imagine, would be for Verizon customers switching. According to AT&T, Verizon customers sharing 10GB a month can save $125 a month for five lines. If you already are an AT&T customer with a Mobile Share plan covering 10GB or higher, the new rate will take effect automatically.

Besides the new pricing, AT&T is giving new subscribers a $100 credit for activating a new line. For the just announced fourth quarter, the nation's second largest carrier added 566,000 net new postpaid accounts. 21% of AT&T's postpaid subscribers are now using the Mobile Share plan.

I looked at my bill and I'd save 60 dollars a month for 4 lines.
AT&T is the only good carrier where I live so this is awesome.

Dude, 10 GB on 2 lines averages to 5 GB per person.

10 GB on 5 lines averages to 2 GB per person, which comes to about 66 MB a day.

Ugh, Mobile Share is garbage. 10GB is a pathetic number if you use your phone a lot or travel. AT&T is showing its desperation, though, and that is good. Now open the taps so people don't have to constantly monitor usage or worry about overages.

Alright Verizon. Lets see what you do now. I just lost two sales today because of these new options.

I have saved people a lot of money already. I am going to save $40 a month myself. It's a good deal.

I like it. It's helped me get ten sales already today and I'm only halfway through my shift.

My question is, will this only be offered to new customers, or can existing customers already signed up with the Data Share plan take advantage of this as well?

Existing so they don't feel left out. I would be upset if I couldn't sign up for this as a current At&t customer.

As long as you signed that contract before Feb 2nd 2014, you get the break.

I will definitely move to the 2 line one in September, when the new iPhone launches. It'll save us a $120

If you sign a regular contract after Feb 2nd 2014 you will be paying the regular rate. This $15 per line deal is only for 2 year contracts signed Feb 1st 2014 and prior. It also applies to byod, NEXT installments, or outright purchased phones.

It appears you work for ATT but didn't read the release. Look at this
http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=25237&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=37411

It says you can save as a current customer or new,

I'm sorry but this is what I was stating. The 2 year agreement customer signing up after Feb. 2nd 2014 get charged the normal rate, but existing customers get the $15 plan. I read it over several times before I opened my mouth to make sure it was correct. Thank you.

T-mobile charges only $160 a month for a family of 5 with:
- Unlimited talk and text
- 2.5 GB high speed data per person
- unlimited 2G data

The price of that plan for T-mobile will be $100, $120, $140, $160 respectively to the chart.

The $210 for 5 unlimited lines on T-Mo is really a no-brainier, though. $10/line a month for truly unlimited, without throttling? Brilliant.

Yeah, man. That really is a no brainer. Well, I would say so only if you live in an area where T-mobile coverage is good. Poorer coverage (nationwide) is a reason T-mobile is still way down there comparing to AT&T and Verizon. Fortunately I'm in Houston where T-mobile coverage is pretty good.
Anyway, I wanted to show how unfair that comparison chart was. It compared a 10 gb shared data plan to a totally unlimited high speed data plan of T-mobile.

Would be awesome if all of the carriers came up with some sort of early contract termination fee deals lol.
