AT&T to Sweeten Data Plans on January 22nd

AT&T is starting to shake things up a bit on the Tiered Data Plan spectrum.  Announcing new packages starting January 22nd, they hope to compete with Verizon while Big Red doubles the data.

In a few days the $15 per month 200MB data plan will be bumped up to $20 and deliver 300MB. (Overage of $20 for an additional 300MB). The $25 per month 2GB plan will be taken by the new $30 per month 3GB (Overage $10/GB). The old ceiling of 4GB at $45 a month will be raised to 5GB for only $5 more (Overage $10/GB).

AT&T Mobile Broadband plans for tablets also get a similar facelift, with options including $14.99 for 250MB per month, $25 for 2GB per month and $35 for 3GB. However, you business type folks with enterprise plans are going to get an extra GB for $5 more per month.

Sounds cool to me, especially if you’re already stuck with AT&T and no option for an unlimited data plan of any sort, this is at least a step in the right direction.

What do you guys think? Anyone use more than their old ceiling of 4GB but less than 5? Anyone still not satisfied with these new limits? Sound off in the comments below.
