AT&T Has New Postpaid Data Plans for Tablets
AT&T announced today (March 3) that tablet owners now have postpaid options for buying tablet data plans. The data plans themselves haven't changed much, just how you pay for them.
AT&T lets tablet owners prepay for specific amounts of data each month; the advantage of the new postpaid option is that it lumps all charges into the regular monthly bill, making them simpler to pay.
"Our new billing options give customers the flexibility to choose how they prefer to be billed," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer at AT&T, in a statement.
Data prices will stay the same: $15 for 250MB, or $25 for 2GB. However, overage costs will be slightly better for postpaid customers, at $10 per gigabyte. Prepaid customers who want additional data are forced to buy it in 2GB allotments, which comes to $12.50 per gigabyte.
Postpaid plans will remain month-to-month (no contract required), just as prepaid plans currently are.
