AT&T is becoming the latest service provider to ditch contracts, introducing their new Mobile Share Value Plans. The plans will be available to all AT&T customers, and can be used alongside the AT&T Next early upgrade program.
Customers that want to go off contract will need to be in the AT&T Next program, buy their phones unsubsidized, bring in their old, paid for phones, or get to the end of their existing contract. Those who do go off contract will see $15 knocked off their shared data plans, which provide unlimited talk and text plus anywhere between 300 MB and 50 GB of data.
The plans will be available starting December 8, along with a new AT&T Next option that allows you to upgrade after 18 months instead of 12, but lowers monthly payments on your phone.
“With our new Mobile Share Value Plans, customers don’t have to compromise,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility. “Our new no contract option lets customers add a smartphone to the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network at a lower monthly cost. Customers want great value and a premium network – and now they can save more and get unlimited talk, text and data to share.”
