AT&T knocks it out of the park with an excellent new 12-month prepaid plan

Written by admin

AT&T probably didn’t make many fans or gain many new customers raise prices and quiet In the past few weeks alone, popular free offers have been thrown out, but curiously, it seems that the US’s third-largest mobile network operator has also recently made a very positive change to one of its plans with minimal fanfare.

You’d think offering twice as much data as before at no extra cost was an upgrade worth at least a quick official announcement on the carrier’s website or social media channels, but here we are, digging up the information on the Slickdeals Forum

Of course, the awesome new AT&T Prepaid promotion is also fully and officially detailed, effectively letting you spend a measly $25 a month on a whopping 16 gigs of “high-speed” data if you’re willing to shell out $300 up front.

That covers an entire year of wireless service, including unlimited calls and texts within the US, Mexico, and Canada, as well as unlimited texts from the US to more than 100 countries, and yes, even the use of mobile hotspots (counted for the aforementioned 16 GB data allocation).
If the “multi-month” deal sounds familiar to you, it could be because: it’s been around in an 8GB iteration for a few years now and costs, you guessed it, $300 for 12 months. In other words, AT&T has doubled the data here without charging anything extra, but only for new Prepaid subscribers.

Of course, if you don’t have $300 to spend all at once or don’t want to sign a 1-year “contract”, you can always opt for a monthly AT&T Prepaid subscription starting at $30 with only 5 gigs of “high-speed” data included. The other multi-month plan will set you back $99 for 90 days of service with 8GB of data (each month), which no longer feels like a very good deal.

Boost Mobile is the only other provider we can think of that does similar multi-month offers, predictably charging even less (specifically $240 per year) for roughly the same amount of data (15 gigs per month) or $300 for unlimited everything.
Of course, that’s far from a fair comparison for a variety of reasons, with Verizon and T-Mobile yet to get involved in this battle for their prepaid customers’ long-term business, meaning their monthly rates are way more than what AT&T charges here. Too bad those promised “fast” speeds are in fact limited to 4G.
