AT&T to offer larger data plans for businesses

AT&T is rolling out new, large data plans aimed at businesses. The new plans start at $300 per month for 30GB of data, with 40GB going for $400 per month, and 50GB for $500. Devices like feature phones, laptops, and tablets can all be added to these plans as well. These new plans, under the Mobile Share umbrella, also come with unlimited talk and text, as well as tethering for smartphones. AT&T says:

The new plans are ideal for businesses, as well as consumers who need more data, and build on AT&T’s existing Mobile Share plans with expanded options of 30 GB, 40 GB and 50 GB, including unlimited calls and texts. In addition, AT&T is offering new Mobile Share – Data plans for businesses and consumers and new Business Pooled Nation for Data plans for business customers.

Each plan is also limited by the number of devices it can add to these plans. For the 30GB plan, a business can add 15 devices, while 40GB and 50GB can ad 20 and 25 devices, respectively. Businesses that need to add more devices can use the AT&T Business Pooled Nation for Data plans, which have options ranging from 300MB to 10GB per month. Finally, AT&T is adding data-only plans for consumers and businesses, starting at $30 per month for 4GB, going to $335 for 50GB. Each of these plans will be available beginning this Friday, March 22.

AT&T to offer larger data plans for businesses


This is pretty smart actually for a business full of iPhones or something. But $335 for 50GB sounds painful for an individual. I guess this works if you stream a lot on your own.

I can't even fathom collecting that much data usage in a month from a mobile device. If someone is doing that (individual), they need to rethink their habits and redistribute their finances in more efficient ways.

I am only saying this, because I can't stand AT&T; it has absolutley nothing to do with this article, pertaining to business data:

SCREW AT&T, AND ALL THE B.S. SURROUNDING THEM! I sprinted (no pun intended) to Verizon as soon as I found out the iPhone 5 would have LTE. I got EVERYTHING in order to make the switch as painless as possible. My iPhone 3G was not my first encounter with AT&T/Cingular, but I'm hoping it was my last. I dropped Verizon for the sole purpose of getting the iPhone, and was patiently waiting ever since for Verizon to get it. Pay the same price for each service with FAR superior coverage, and (IMO) customer service. And the largest TRUE 4G (by that, I mean LTE) coverage in the US!

$335 for 50GB? Are they crazy? Unless you're laundering money and looking for a way to burn through it, who is going to deploy 15 phones in a business and pay $335 for 50GB? Is this SHARED data or 50GB per device? Even so, Sprint offers TRUE UNLIMITED and is a better deal for any business who, in this economy, is still deploying phones and paying for service. I can't imagine anyone beyond top executives getting this and even so, they can afford to pay for this sort of thing themselves.

I can't believe how expensive these data plans are. It would be nice if the wireless carriers would drop prices to compete with cable and DSL ISPs.

Go to Millenicom and get your Mi-Fi unit and get true unlimited data for $69.99 per month. Don't take my word for it, go check it out for yourself. Depending on which Mi-Fi unit you get you'll either be on the Verizon LTE network or the AT&T 4G LTE network. Do your homework so you know which one you're getting beforehand, if it matters to you.

Yeah, everybody is complaining about how expensive this is, but if you pool, wouldn't this be pretty cheap?

I may be wrong, but this actually seems pretty reasonable and could actually become dirt cheap if I am understanding it correctly.

This has got to be the biggest rip off ever. AT&T service/support doesn't even come close to warranting those disgusting prices.
