AT&T drops price of 2GB Mobile Share by $15

Posted Mar 9, 2014

AT&T has dropped the price of the 2GB data plan by $15 — from $55 to $40 per month. You will still need to pay an extra fee for each device that accesses the data pool, according to The Verge.

The cost is remaining the same at $40 per month on each on-contract smartphone and $25 per month for smartphones bought at full price or through the Next installment plans. All Mobile Share Value plans have unlimited talk and text and free texts from the U.S. to international numbers. AT&T is also offering 50GB of cloud storage with the plans.

If you have a 2GB plan on AT&T, you may save $30 per month. You will need to change your plan online, in stores, or through your phone to get the new pricing.

The revised 2GB price and AT&T’s old 1GB plan is being canceled. Current customers will not be switched over to the new 2GB bucket, which is $5 less per month and will come with twice the data.

AT&T will let customers that signed a contract on March 8, 2014 or sooner get the $25 per phone pricing if you switch to a qualifying Mobile Share Value plan. This is a $15 per month savings over the typical rate for on-contract phones.

The 2GB/4GB/6GB data tiers are valid for the promotional rate. When you upgrade to a new phone on contract in the future, the rate will go back to $40.
