AT&T this week announced it’s upgrading its international Passport plan to offer more data when you travel abroad. The Passport program now offers a 1GB tier of data for $60 and 3GB for $120 and will be available in over 200 countries.
Customers can activate the plan on a monthly basis and either add it as one-time fee or as a recurring charge. If you opt for a one month charge, the international data pool will be available for 30 days after which it will expire.
The bump up in data is a nice move on AT&T’s part. Previously, the Passport plan started at $40 and offered a paltry 200MB of data.
AT&T also offers an International Day Pass that lets customers access their US-based data, text and call plan internationally for $10 a day. That’s useful if you’re out of the country for a few days, but if it’s any longer, that bill will add up quickly. This is where the Passport plan becomes more viable.
Traveling customers can take advantage of AT&T’s upgraded Passport plan now.
