This week the Guy and Yasar show comes with good news for AT&T
customers. Well, at least good news for those who want more data usage
Here are the details:
According to an AT&T press release
, on "February 13, beginning with the in-store launch of the HTC Inspire™ 4G. Bundled with the AT&T Data Pro plan, customers will benefit from a total of 4GB for $45 per month."
The $45 will consist of the $25 fee for the AT&T Data Pro plan and an additional $20 for the extra 2GB of data usage. They will also be featuring an AT&T Mobile Hotspot App to support users getting their internet access through tethering.
This is good news for those who use the tethering option a lot. This is most likely an attempt by AT&T to compete with Verizon now that the iPhone
will be available on both carriers. Verizon
has a similarly priced tethering plan which includes an extra 2GB per month for another $20 (same as AT&T)
. Be forewarned, however: The Verizon overage fee is twice as much as AT&T ($20/GB vs. $10/GB).
Hopefully the competition between these mobile giants will continue to be fierce while the rest of reap the benefits. It should be noted that according to Digital Trends
, "Verizon 'will offer an unlimited data plan for the iPhone 4: unlimited data plans won't be offered indefinitely. McAdam has now said Verizon will eventually drop unlimited plans and move to adopt a tiered data structure in the "not too distant future."
