Check out this new plan on AT&T. It’s a little cheaper then what they currently offer. The main difference is that this new plan only offers 10GB instead of 15GB per month. Then you also aren’t eligible for discounted prices of phones. You have to either pay full price for a device or purchase an unlocked phone from somewhere.
While this plan looks enticing and I think it’s a step in the right direction for AT&T, phone plans are still expensive compared to off contact plans. Personally I’m waiting for my contact to run out so that I can test Straight Talk out. I want to see how the coverage and data speeds compare to AT&T’s. I also want to see if they start throttling my data speeds after 5GB of usage. As it stands now we have 5 phones on a family plan with a shared 15GB of data. So I can use about 4GB myself as my wife barely his 2GB. Switching to Straight Talk would save me $15 a month and actually let me use more data. Hopefully it works well.
