We live in a very rural area. As a result our internet options consists of satellite internet with a cap on how much data we can use. Or mobile hot spot, also with a cap on how much we can use. When we first moved here we went the satellite internet route. It worked alright. Until there was a storm. Or lots of wind. Or just all around bad weather. Then came the unannounced rate hikes. So we ditched satellite and went with a mobile hotspot through our cell phones with AT&T.
Our current data plan included 20 gigs of data that were shared between my husband and I both for our internet and cell phone usage. It worked. We did have to watch how we used the data. We don’t download movies for example until the last of the month and only if we have enough data left over to do so. Some months we had plenty. Other months we barely made it.
Then I came across this deal and I admit my first thought was it seemed too good to be true. After some looking and reading, not only is it valid but it is open to every single AT&T customer.
Double the Data for Same Price on Plans 15 to 50GB
Right now through October 31st, AT&T is offering new promotional Mobile Share Value plans that include double the amount of data offered on Mobile Share Value plans with 15GB to 50 GB of data. New and existing customers who proactively sign-up by October 31 can double their data plans to go from 15GB to 30GB and all the way up to 100GB.
We had the 20GB plan and by changing our plan online to the new one, we were able to go from 20 up to 40GB of data per month for the same price.
What’s the catch?
You have to ask for it. If you sign-up by October 31, you can keep your new promotional shared data amount as long as you want. There is no expiration. If you need to change your shared data amount after the promotional period ends, you will need to select from the current Mobile Value Share offers. So you may lose your current plan and if for any reason you want to change your amounts.
To take advantage of this offer, just log into your account or call AT&T mobile customer service and request it.
