AT&T doubles data caps for GoPhone plans
AT&T has changed up its GoPhone prepaid data plan offerings on Wednesday. It has at least doubled the data in all three tiers, with the new packages going into effect on April 22. Customers will then get 50MB of data for $5, 200MB for $15, and 1GB for $25 per month.
Each plan requires that GoPhone users get either the $50 Unlimited Talk & Text nationwide plan or the $25 Unlimited Text with 250 minutes nationwide GoPhone plan.
The move may have been prompted by better price points from competitors that regularly focus on prepaid as their main business plan, such as Boost Mobile and Leap's Cricket. Visitors to the US and others who only seldomly need access have also complained about GoPhone offerings.
