AT&T announces new data roaming packages

Planning on going somewhere this summer with your iPhone or iPad? AT&T has announced cheaper data roaming packages you may want to check out.

  • 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
If you go over your allotment, you're automatically signed up for another round of the bottom tier.

Considering as of last summer AT&T was asking  $25 for 50 MB, these are pretty good deals, and puts them on par with a recent data roaming package Verizon has recently started to offer: 100 MB for $25. Personally, I prefer to pick up a local SIM card rather than sign up for a roaming package (mainly because Rogers charges $50 for 10 MB), but often language barriers and time constraints can stop that from happening.

So where are you going this summer? Planning travel to any exotic locales? If you're looking for ways your iPad or iPhone can help you out on the road, be sure to check our feature on the best summer vacation apps.
