AT&T and Verizon boosting certain data plans

48 sec read

If you’re on an AT&T single-line plan or have two to three devices, the company is now offering 3GB of data as opposed to the prior 2GB for $40 per month. And now, the carrier’s $70 tier will net you 6GB of bandwidth instead of 4GB. This new allocation starts November 2nd, and as Gigaom points out, the double-data promo for higher-tier plans runs until November 15th. Verizon has a sorta similar deal going, but it’s for plans that have higher bandwidth to start.

A month ago, Verizon and AT&T doubled the data available on higher-tier shared plans as all of the major carriers tried to entice new customers with bigger buckets of bandwidth. Now both operators are scaling down those promotional offers to their low-tier (in the case of AT&T) and mid-tier (in the case of Verizon) mobile bandwidth bundles. Both AT&T and Verizon‘s original double-data promotions targeted accounts that bought data in bulk allotments of 15GBs or more a month to split between many family members or multiple devices. AT&T’s new promotion, however, targets single-line customers or households with two or three devices: $40 a month now gets 3 GBs instead of 2 GBs, and its $70 plan comes with 6 GBs instead of 4 GBs. AT&T is also extending its double-data offer on higher tier plans until Nov. 15.
