AT&T has announced a new tier of data for their Shared Value plans this morning, as it’s going to soon be offering customers the capability to subscribe with 7GB of data per month to share between family members, which will end up costing just $75 per month before the add on of the line access costs. This is only $5 a month more than their 6GB data package on the shared value plans which is $70, yet customers will get 1GB more of data which makes this a pretty good deal for the cost. It seems like a no-brainer for most families if they’ll fit right into this range to go with the 7GB option instead of the 6GB, but it also makes the 6GB option sort of pointless.
It also puts into perspective how vast the array of offerings is that AT&T has for shared value data packages, as they go all the way up to 50GB a month for $375 and start at just 300MB for a total $20 a month, which leads us to the question of who would want to share 300MB of data? We know, there is probably someone out there who has a family of three and sparsely uses the internet except to read a few emails each and maybe post to Facebook once a month. For those that are considering the 7GB plan with AT&T, this package also comes with the rollover data so you’ll be able to carry over any unused data to the following month.
If you’re curious about how much of what kind of content 7GB will give you, AT&T throws out a few examples of average use, like streaming 60 hours of music or 12 hours of video. You could surf the web for 110 hours or create 500 different posts with uploaded photos to your favorite social media app. You can also download 50 apps and send/receive 5,000 emails. If this plan sounds just right for you, AT&T is going to be opening up the capability to sign up for it this coming Sunday which is February 15th. You’ll be able to move to this data package via any of their outlets whether it be online, in a store or over the phone. If you subscribe to AT&T, is 7GB the perfect plan for you?
