AT&T has taken the opportunity to relaunch its existing GoPhone prepaid arm as AT&T Prepaid. For good measure, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States also introduced a new promotional deal, which basically offers a couple of free months of mobile service to customers who decide to activate and keep the new line on specific qualified plans.
The second biggest wireless carrier in America is currently working to restore FaceTime for subscribers of its GoPhone unlimited plan. AT&T, however, still has not revealed the cause of the disruption.
A week ago, the mobile operator had introduced a $60 per month unlimited data option for customers of its GoPhone brand, and the plan included voice calls, text messaging, and data, but connection speeds are throttled at 3 mbps. A number of GoPhone customers, however, have already noticed that their new plan does not have support for Apple’s video calling feature on AT&T’s network.
The second biggest wireless carrier in America has taken the opportunity to improve a couple of its budget friendly prepaid GoPhone options just recently, but the caveats should not be taken lightly. For the first prepaid plan, unlimited data is made available for $60 a month, and already comes with just 3 mbps of data, plus the connection speeds will slow down even further after the customer goes beyond the 22 gigabyte limit. Meanwhile, the second prepaid plan offers a more affordable $45 a month price as well as a more generous 6 gigabytes of fast data. However, the customer will be throttled to 128K when he consumes more data than what is allotted.
The undisputed leaders of the wireless industry in the United States have been busy making changes to their prepaid plans recently, but in totally contrasting manners. As reported by Prepaid Phone News, AT&T has decided to increase the amounts of data via its add-on options on its GoPhone prepaid plans. As for Verizon Wireless, it looks like it is discontinuing a couple of its more affordable prepaid plans.
Just recently, AT&T confirmed news about its plans of launching new family plan options under its prepaid brand, GoPhone. With this recent announcement, AT&T now joins the likes of other prepaid carriers (such as T-Mobile's MetroPCS and Sprint's Boost Mobile) in giving customers an option to obtain more discounts when they activate multiple lines of service. Apart from giving discounts to its customers, this move by the carrier showcases its continued growth in its prepaid arm.
AT&T sure is feeling generous lately. Indeed, the company has decided to boost the amount of data on its GoPhone prepaid mobile plans, and prepaid customers of the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States will no doubt be delighted to know that they can now enjoy more data at the same regular price as before.
AT&T will be increasing the monthly data allotments on its GoPhone plans starting Friday, February 20th. On top of that, the major wireless carrier will also be adding calls to Mexico free of charge.
GoPhone plan's data bucket currently offers 1 gigabyte per month. But in a couple of days, AT&T will be boosting the data allotment to 1.5 gigabytes per month. As for the $60 plan, what used to be 2.5 gigabytes will grow to 4 gigabytes starting this Friday.
Moreover, customers under AT&T's GoPhone plans already enjoy unlimited text messaging to Mexico as well as to other countries. But beginning this coming weekend, subscribers under the $60 plan will get to have unlimited calls to any landline and mobile phone number in Mexico, too.
