Let the carrier wars continue. AT&T has just announced that it is dropping the price of its two-gigabyte Mobile Share Value plan by $15 in total. AT&T’s 2GB plan currently costs $55 as a base price. That’s dropping down $15 to $40, which represents most of the savings one’s going to typically get as part of AT&T’s new changes. From there, a potential plan purchaser has to add in the cost of one’s smartphone to the mobile plan: $25 for non-contract phones and $40 for those on a two-year smartphone service agreement.
The wireless carrier price wars continue this weekend as AT&T and T-Mobile respectively announced price cuts and new data incentives for subscribers. T-Mobile on Friday announced Simple Choice customers will soon have 1GB of 4G LTE data per month added to their account for free, effectively doubling the amount data previously allotted to the entry-level price tier. More data is available in 2GB chunks for an additional $10 per month. Simple Choice customers will also get unlimited global texting from the U.S. and while abroad from 122 countries and destinations. Along with the bonus data, the telecom quietly raised the price of its unlimited 4G LTE data option to $30, up from $20 per month. Terms still include 5GB of tethered data use.
