AT&T shared data plans are nearing, evidence suggests

And so it begins....
Wonder what Sprint and T Mo will come up with, or will they stay the same?

I really hope AT&T offers just data bundles, tiered at a reasonable price. Verizon forcing everyone to go on unlimited minutes is unnecessary, and definitely so for AT&T with their unlimited mobile calling feature. I would speculate something along the lines of their existing models, but open to multiple lines, that is, $30 for 3GB, $50 for 5, and maybe $75 for 10. In my view that would work well and present a very competitive and comprehensive setup, and seem feasible for customer and carrier alike

I agree. Although AT&T and Verizon usually offer the exact same plans, AT&T seems to really try to differentiate themselves when it comes to data plans. If they're going to do something of shared data plans, I think what would set them apart is if they offered some type of "rollover data." I think AT&T should offer unlimited minutes and texts too, mainly just to save people from having to purchase the additional unlimited text + any mobile to mobile package for $20. Your price points for the tired data bundle seems very legit and reasonable as well, so long as AT&T doesn't do the device access fee for their new plans.

Verizon reps were correct when stating that AT&T was next and coming soon. So unfortunate.

Probably coming, but that pic looks fake. Data and Unlimited Overage lines are wrong.

I'm a little confused as to what "Unlimited Overage" even means.

no its not i work for att and it mean u can use as much as u want but you will get the overage charges wich is 10 bucks per gig so it is correct.

As long as they dont pull what VZW is doing if you upgrade you lose you unl data plan. Otherwise I am just buying phones outright! Even though I only avg 1.5-2gigs a month

I agree!!! I currently have a grandfathered unlim data plan and I buy my phones from ebay. Currently rocking an LG Quantum!!!

well if you have admitted that unlimited data isn't really necessary...is it really worth paying full retail price on a phone if your usage fits reasonable tier data pricing?

Although I avg 1.5-2GIGs there are months where my usage is closer to 5-6gis if I am traveling. I dont want to pay extra if I dont have to, unl is peace of mind.
