AT&T Revamps Data Plans, Eliminates Overage Fees

One of the best things about competition in the mobile phone industry is that, as soon as one company does something, the rest eventually follow suit. In this case it was Verizon's "safety mode" that has prompted AT&T to follow suit.

Beginning Sunday, customers can choose the new Mobile Share Advantage plan and pay for extra data, if needed, or work with slower data speeds instead of paying for overages, the company said in a statement. Its current plan includes a $5 data overage charge per 300 megabytes on its 300-megabyte plan and $15 per 1 gigabyte on other plans.
