Come Sunday and AT&T will be seen offering new data plans for their subscribers. Existing consumers can choose between sticking to their current plans and selecting amongst the new ones. The carrier has also announced that it will be continuing with the $14.99 for 250MB tablet plan.

The other options made available include the Data Plus plan, wherein for $20, subscribers can enjoy 300MB on their smartphones. The Data Pro plan for handsets reads out to be $30 for 3GB as well as 5GB at $50 which is inclusive of mobile hotspot or tethering. Data Pro customers will be required to pay up $10 per additional gigabyte on the network, while Data Plus users can enjoy an extra 300MB for $20.

“Customers are using more data than ever before,” states David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “Our new plans are driven by this increasing demand in a highly competitive environment, and continue to deliver a great value to customers, especially as we continue our 4G LTE deployment.”

Coming to the tablet plans, with the AT&T DataConnect, users can choose either the 3GB scheme at $30 or the $50 for 5GB plan. Needless to say, these apply to postpaid tablet plans which are for 30 days and get automatically renewed on a monthly basis. Folks who intend to opt out are required to cancel the service, prior to the beginning of the 30 day renewal. Here again, $10 will be charged per additional gigabyte with both the aforementioned tablet plans.

As revealed earlier, these new AT&T data plans can be opted for from January 22 onwards by the carrier’s customers.
