AT&T GoPhone prepaid plans get more data for less

By Adrian Diaconescu November 2, 2016, 7:10 am

Sprint has Virgin and Boost Mobile, T-Mobile’s MetroPCS daughter operator continues to contribute to impressive quarterly reports, Verizon’s prepaid department is also on the rise in terms of both plans and supported phones, whereas AT&T keeps strengthening Cricket’s device portfolio while improving GoPhone options and lowering prices.

Ma Bell’s latest batch of prepaid discounts looks permanent too, allowing GoPhone customers to add 3GB data to $60 monthly plans for an extra $20 if a 1 gig supplement at 10 bucks isn’t enough or feels a little steep.

Technically, this top-of-the-line no-annual-contract option includes unlimited everything, but only your first 6 gigs of data are accessible at “high speed”, after which you need to make do with a max velocity of 128Kbps. Or pay up to extend your 4G LTE allotment, available for one plan term rollover.


Meanwhile, the $45 “unlimited” monthly AT&T GoPhone plan will continue to drop speeds after 3GB consumption, unless you sign up for a $10 add-on good for 1 more gig of data, up from 500MB before.

Then you have the $30 plan, which still comes without any sort of data allocation, letting you however buy 250MB instead of 100 for $5. Finally, $2 a day covers unlimited nationwide talk and text, with 100MB data packages setting you back an additional $1.
