    AT&T Raises Data Caps!


    AT&T* today announced select smartphone customers will soon be able to connect multiple devices from their smartphone – via Wi-Fi – thanks to the new AT&T Mobile Hotspot application. The feature will first be available February 13, beginning with the in-store launch of the HTC Inspire™ 4G. Bundled with the AT&T Data Pro plan, customers will benefit from a total of 4GB for $45 per month.

    In addition, also on February 13th, to bring AT&T's smartphone tethering plan in line with the AT&T Mobile Hotspot offer, AT&T will automatically add the additional 2GB of monthly data usage to smartphone customers already on a tethering plan – at no extra charge. Customers will incur the same $20 monthly fee they're accustomed to paying, only now they'll receive an extra 2GB of data each month.

    AT&T Mobile Hotspot details include:

    * Connectivity for multiple wireless devices to AT&T's mobile broadband network
    * 2 GB of data usage for $20 a month, bundled with AT&T's Data Pro plan ($25 / 2GB)
    * The combined AT&T Data Pro plus AT&T Mobile Hotspot will provide 4GB for $45 per month
    * 4GB applies to collective use among all devices
    * Overage fee of $10 per gigabyte


    "Our customers want to connect as many devices as possible to the nation's fastest mobile broadband network, which is getting faster with 4G," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.

    "We want to extend the benefits of an additional 2GB to smartphone customers on our tethering plan. This delivers more value today for the price they're already paying – and that's what our customers want."

    Customers will receive a text message from AT&T – as soon as February 13 – once the additional 2GB has been auto-added to their plan.

    Good news indeed. It at least shows AT&T is understanding their customer's needs somewhat. Anything like this is a move in the right direction.
