AT&T Cuts Prices for Higher-End Mobile Share Family Plans

AT&T is feeling the heat from T-Mobile, as it just slashed its Mobile Share Value plans that come with 10GB or more data -- making them much more competitive. A family of four can now get unlimited talk, text and 10GB of data for $160 per month. You can add each additional line for just $15.

These best-ever prices on AT&T’s best-in-class network are available beginning tomorrow to any AT&T customer, including small businesses with up to 10 lines, and customers of Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and other wireless carriers who switch to AT&T.

New Customers Can Switch and Save

Customers new to AT&T can get these best-ever prices on AT&T’s award-winning network when they sign up for a 10GB or larger bucket of data and purchase a phone with AT&T NextSM (no annual service contract and get a new device every year for $0 down) or bring their own device or purchase a phone at full retail price.

Here’s an example: Today, Verizon charges $260 monthly for a comparable plan that’s now $160 from AT&T. A family with four smartphones with unlimited talk and text, and a shared 10GB bucket of data, could switch to AT&T from Verizon and save $100 a month. In addition to the big monthly savings, the family in this example would get a $400 bill credit for the four smartphone lines of service added.

Savings for Current AT&T Customers

Current AT&T customers can save big with these new plans, too, when they choose a 10GB or larger bucket of data. For example, a family or small business with four smartphones could move to this new plan and save between $40 and $100 per month, depending on their current plan.

“These new plans give customers what they want – our best-ever prices on a best-in-class network,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility. “We’re making it easy for families who want it all – great service, great value and big bucket of data to share.”

Also, for a limited time only, all new and existing AT&T customers will receive a $100 bill credit for each new line of service added – whether a smartphone, tablet, feature phone, mobile hotspot or AT&T Wireless Home Phone.


This new pricing only gives discounts to customers who pay for their phone outright (no contract) or use AT&T's Next early upgrade feature. So those who like to buy phones with a 2 year contract still must pay $40 for each line. However, AT&T is holding a somewhat surprising promotion -- if you are currently on a 2 year contract, you can simply switch to Mobile Share and pay just $15 for smartphone instead of your usual $40! If you decide to get a new phone, you must either upgrade your phone via Next or buying it outright, otherwise your per-line price will jump to $40 from $15.

So to summarize, if you're currently with AT&T and have either a Mobile Share of traditional data plan, we recommend you give AT&T a call tomorrow and switch over to these new plans, if you use around 10 GB total (on all lines). However, those on unlimited data might want to think twice, because once you switch, you'll lose it forever!

What do you think of the new plans? Will you switch?

Exactly why I switched to t mobile, why should low prices of family plans matter, sprint thinks we should switch to it just to say but the long-term contracts that still affect you changes NOTHING!!! I am done with these guys. Bunch of rip offs.

Are the long-terms costs of the new Mobile Share plans worth it? https://vimeo.com/86745276

It's ridiculous that they will cut prices to get new customers but they do nothing to keep the customers they already have happy. I pay 207$ a month for 2 lines unlimited talk and text and 10 gb data and because I signed a contract I can't get the discount.so after my contract is up I'm going somewhere else. It shouldnt matter if ur on a contract or not if their gonna cut prices for new customers they better think about keeping the ones they already have happy. This has upset a lot of customers on contracts that won't be renewing their contract with att&t.their all going else where including me. So even though their trying to compete with others cell companies all their done is getting new customers and handing over their old loyal customers who's been with them even with the high prices so even if Verizon or other cells lose customers they gain a lot of at&ts old customers whos are pissed... Good bye AT&T!!!!

All they've done*. But yeah, verizon is exactly the same like gayt&t. Rip offs, overall year price and about the same coverage, this to is why I switched to tmobile a few weeks ago. Never looked back at all, could never be any more happy.

It is available! I was at $235 per month for 4 smartphones before taxes with 8 GB data. NOW I am at $160 per month before taxes with 10 GB shared data! Saving me $900.00 per year!

In spite of this offer from AT&T, you have option to choose cheaper family plan from T-Mobile.... look for comparative sheet... www.telecomvibe.com

Tmobile Family Plan is definitely so much cheaper and flexible. It started from $100 for 4 line (each 500MB data and unlimited voice and text) in US. We can adjust the data plan based on each family member usage (500MB, 2.5GB or unlimited). If one wants all lines with 2.5GB, just pay $40 more ($10 for each line) - $140 for 4 lines. But for ATT, it will certainly costs you more the $200-$250 (depends on the data shared plan we selected).
