Today is a sad day in data land. AT&T have just announced two new mobile data plans with one glaring omission: no more unlimited data.
There is some consolation, though, as those of you currently on unlimited plans are welcome to keep them.
As of June 7, however, any new customers wanting the all-you-can-eat data buffet will be left hungry — and that includes new iPad owners.
The new plans will come in two flavours: the 200MB DataPlus plan for $15 per month, and the 2GB DataPro plan for $25 per month. If you go over your allowed usage, data will be charged at $15 per 200MB on the DataPlus, and $10 per GB on the DataPro.
The new plans are designed to offer a cheaper option to light users, while restricting the heavy users, in turn helping ease the burden on their struggling network. It makes sense, but it’s always sad to lose something you once had, even if it is something as ephemeral as a data plan.
