AT&T might be planning to soon include more data in its GoPhone prepaid plans
posted by Mihai A. / Jan 05, 2016, 11:37 AM
Allegedly, the $45 GoPhone plan will soon include 2GB of high-speed mobile data, up from 1.5GB at the moment. Furthermore, the $60 GoPhone plan, currently holding 4GB of high-speed mobile data, is said to soon include 5GB of data. While the exact details of these upgrades are currently unknown, chances that customers will be automatically transitioned to the higher data caps in the next billing cycle.
Unfortunately, the same sources also claim that the prepaid talk plan that currently costs $0.10 per minute will be modified to $0.25 per minute. On the upside, the change is said to affect new customers only, which means that If you're currently on the $0.10 per minute plan, you'll be able to keep your rate for the time being.
AT&T is said to announce these changes to its GoPhone prepaid plans tomorrow, January 6th. We'll be here to inform you of the changes if that happens. In the meantime, drop us a comment in the section below and share your thoughts on these allegedly upcoming changes!

This is so dumb. So in one hand they want to offer better value, but on the other, they don't want to undermine Cricket. Either get rid of Gophone, merge it all, or rename/label both Cricket. If Gophone were to offer a 3Gb for $50, you certainty will see a decline of Cricket's subscription base.

When I left Sprint, I was deciding between AT&T GoPhone and Cricket, as I had both previously. I ultimately went to GoPhone for a couple of reasons. The biggest reason was customer service, which is directly from AT&T. I know customer service varies, but AT&T has always had excellent customer service for me. Also, GoPhone gets full AT&T 4G LTE speeds, compared to the capped 8Mbps 4G LTE speeds Cricket customers get. There's also the benefit of rollover data. So while Cricket users may have more data (10GB for $60 vs. 4GB, soon to be 5GB for $60), GoPhone users have full speed access to the AT&T 4G LTE pipeline, superior customer service, and rollover data. Essentially, GoPhone is AT&T's premium prepaid brand while Cricket is the low end brand. I love my GoPhone service and don't see myself switching anytime soon, especially when the data goes up to 5GB, which is what I use on average.

thats what ive been saying, they should of never re-branded the cricket name in the first place, shut down crickets CDMA network and use the space for ATT towers...yes ATT needs to get rid of one of the two but they wont because people are used to the name of Cricket and their cheap low prices but not even knowing that its run by ATT and their network... its all about name brand....if ATT would buy Virgin mobile,Sprint i know they wouldnt keep the name and just fold it into it s ATT prepaid which they should of done with cricket and then offer cricket prices under ATT prepaid
