AT&T has come out with new DataConnect Pass pay-as-you-go service for their netbooks, as well as for laptops. These data plans include both 3G mobile broadband data, as well as wifi. We assume that the wifi is unlimited.
The AT&T DataConnect Pass plan options include:
- DataConnect Day Pass (100 MB) – $15
- DataConnect Week Pass (300 MB) – $30
- DataConnect Month Pass (1GB) – $50
It’s about time more pay-as-you mobile broadband data plans rolled out! We can’t help but wonder if this has to do with Virgin Mobile’s recent price drop on their own Prepaid Mobile Broadband data plans.
Also, to coincide with these new pay as you go options, they’ve also released three new netbooks with built-in mobile broadband.
