Earlier this year, AT&T was offering a $100 bill credit for those that open a new line on AT&T. This could be for both existing and new customers. But it’d only work for existing customers if you add on another line to your account. It was an incentive to get everyone to switch over to AT&T from another carrier. It’s not quite as good as the deal from T-Mobile, but still nice to see a $100 bill credit when you switch, right?
Well today, AT&T brought that deal back again. So if you switch to AT&T or open a new line on AT&T Next, you are eligible for a $100 bill credit. So what this means is that you can’t buy a phone on a new two-year contract. You have to buy from AT&T Next which means you’re paying monthly for your phone until it’s paid off.
This is just the latest in the carrier price war that has mostly involved Sprint and T-Mobile and every once in a while, AT&T. Last week, Sprint announced a new fully unlimited plan for just $60, which T-Mobile fired back with a new family plan and individual plan. Their Simply Starter plan includes unlimited talk and text as well as 2GB of Data for just $45. So AT&T decided to do a $100 bill credit. You’d think that they could do something a bit more drastic than that as T-Mobile has been taking chunks of their potential customers over the past year. But I think something more drastic is coming soon. Especially as their growth slows even more thanks to T-Mobile and Sprint.
AT&T has a great network, and some of the fastest speeds. Which is why their prices are higher than T-Mobile and Sprint right now. So if you really need great coverage and you travel a lot, AT&T is a great carrier to choose, and right now it’s even better. How many of you are thinking of jumping ship over to AT&T?
