We will see an interesting offer from AT&T this summer. The mobile operator is about to release its new “All In One” brand with prepaid options of $35, $50 and $70 per month. How good is this offer? Will smartphone users get an affordable service with much data?
The predictions you will find inside this post have not been commented by AT&T spokesman yet. At the same time we have heard that the company has plans to test its new offers in Texas and Florida in May. The nationwide service’s release is expected starting June 15.
According to rumors, the U.S. AT&T carrier palns to introduce $35 and $50 monthly service for iOS devices. The new brand is expected to present unlimited texting and talking plan for different phones worth $35 monthly. You will be able to get 2GB of HSPA data for $50 per month and 5GB of data for $70 per month.
Users who consume more data than they have paid for will get slower data speeds. Of course, these details might not be accurate and AT&T might offer other plans when it launches the new service in June. Right now we can only share the rumors with you.
The new service can be a good strategy against plans of other prepaid U.S. carriers. Some companies have already introduced similar plans. For example, Verizon offers its customers a prepaid service worth $35 per month. It comes with unlimited texting and web. It also offers users 500 calling minutes. Another company, T-Mobile US, will offer consumers unlimited $60 per month texting and voice plan with 2GB of data.
The idea of AT&T to release pre-paid “All In One” service is not a surprise. The carrier wants to increase sales of handsets it is selling. It reports it has lost over 180,000 prepaid subscribers during January-March period.
