AT&T Trying to Make Global Mobile More Affordable

As anyone who travels often can attest, globe-hopping can be quite expensive for those who rely on their mobile devices extensively during such travels.

For that reason, AT&T is striving to make the cosmopolitan subscriber’s mobile phone bill a little less daunting.

On Thursday, AT&T announced a new lineup of Data Global Add-On packages that will make it more affordable to enjoy data services while traveling internationally.

Beginning June 1, the updated packages will be available to customers while traveling abroad in more than 130 countries.

The new international data package tiers are:

  • 120 MB Data Global Add-on package for $30/month
  • 300 MB Data Global Add-on package for $60/month
  • 800 MB Data Global Add-on package for $120/month

The overage rate for all packages is $30 for 120MB.

“We want our customers to experience the same level of wireless connectivity while traveling abroad as they do at home,” said Mark Collins, senior vice president of Data and Voice Products at AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “Whether they choose to surf the Internet, use GPS on their device, respond to emails, or update their social network status, we are making it more affordable than ever for them to enjoy data services internationally.”
