AT&T unveils new pay as you go data plans for international travelers

AT&T offers pre-paid international data

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Oct 21, 2010 4:18 pm

If you travel out of the country and use your data plan on your notebook or mobile phone chances are you will end up getting charged much more than you think you will. Some people have traveled overseas and ended up with wireless bills in the thousands of dollars range after downloading movies or TV episodes.




If you travel to other countries and you really need access to data on your notebook or netbook with an integrated modem or with a USB modem, AT&T has unveiled some new pay as you go options that will keep you from being hit with a giant bill when you get home. The new data packages cover 100 countries including Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia and lots more. The plans start at $24.99 and go up to $199.99.


You don't get much data at all in the plans AT&T offers, so don't think you will be streaming lots of Hulu or downloading lots of large files. The $24.99 plan gets you 20MB of data while the $59.99 plan gets you 50MB of data use. The $119.99 plan gets 100MB of data and the most expensive $199.99 plan gets you 200MB of data. The service will let the user buy the plan before a trip and then specify when it starts. Users with AT&T accounts active more than 90 days can bill the packages to their wireless account or pay with a credit card.
