    AT&T Plans to Jack Up Data Plan Prices Next Week Due to Heavy Data Usage Increases


    The United States' second largest mobile phone carrier, AT&T, has made plans to sharply raise their pricing on data plans for smartphones and tablets. They are calling this move a response to an explosion in data usage. These new pricing plans will only affect new users, and current customers are grandfathered into their existing plans.

    Mark Siegel, an AT&T spokesman explained that with customers consumption of video and music, estimates show that data usage is increasing 40 percent every year, which spurred the company toward this action. Here's a quote from the Yahoo article with details of the new pricing,

    From January 22, AT&T customers will pay $20 for a 300-megabyte monthly data plan, up from $15 for 200-mb currently. Users with higher requirements can also opt for $30 for 3 gigabytes -- versus $25 for 2 GB previously -- or $50 for 5 GB, up from $45 for 4 GB.
