Traveling abroad? AT&T has new international roaming data plans in its Passport
The AT&T Passport program is a boon for international travelers on the carrier's plans, and the offering just got simpler and sweeter. Roaming warriors will be able to pick between 1GB of data for a one-time $60 charge, valid for 30 days, or can get triple that amount of data for twice the price (3GB for $120), and set it as recurring payment, if needed. Actual talking is extra, though, at $0.35 per minute to any place.
Given that before that announcement AT&T's Passport add-on was giving just 200 MB, and for $40 at that, this is certainly good news for travelers that don't want to deal with the local SIM card hassles. We can't say that leaving the Kremlin as illustration for the travel-abroad Passport program is a wise decision on part of AT&T in the current political environment, but the carrier doesn't seem to worry.
We kid, but if you are leaving for shorter, AT&T's $10 International Day Pass may suffice, so that you can use your current talk, text and data plan abroad, yet those happy days may quickly add up. The new Passport offer is valid for more than 200 countries, so you will basically be covered in most places you may intend to go, too.
