at&t Hearts Tablets
Quick on the heals of the Ipad 2 announcement Apples formerly favorite wireless providers rolled out a new pricing plan specifically designed for tablets. Sporting both a pay in advance and a post pay option the deal really doesn’t look to bad. From the at&t website:
Customers may choose from the following options.
Postpaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment will be charged $10 per 1 GB of overage. Charges will appear on customers’ monthly wireless statements.
Prepaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment may choose to purchase an additional 2 GB for $25. Charges will appear on customers’ credit card statements.
Both options are month-to-month and do not require a long-term commitment.
The primary difference seems to be that it will cost you $5 more for the overage per 2GB on the Prepaid vs. the Postpaid. While it isn’t the ideal unlimited data for X reasonable price that we’d all like to see it does seem to be a step in the right direction and a viable alternative for the price and bandwidth conservatives out there.
