AT&T introduced its brand new Mobile Share plans this morning, which will be available in late August. The carrier isn’t doing away with its existing plans, however, which means customers can continue on without any changes if they choose to do so.
AT&T’s plans appear to be more expensive off of the bat, especially when it comes to how much you’ll pay per gigabyte, but that’s not always the case. 10GB of AT&T will cost you $120 per month plus $30 per smartphone, for example. Under Verizon’s plans, you’ll pay $100 for 10GB of data per month plus $40 per smartphone. A family with four smartphones, in this scenario, would pay $240 on AT&T or $260 on Verizon Wireless. Unlike Verizon Wireless, current AT&T customers can opt to keep their existing plans and AT&T said there are “no to [its] device upgrade policy, which means customers eligible to upgrade to AT&T’s best device price are not required to switch plans.”
As a quick guide to help you see how AT&T’s offering stacks up to Verizon’s, we’ve created the chart below.
