Business travelers often find themselves in a sticky situation, where they have to choose between shelling out top dollar for costly international data roaming charges and failing to send important work documents on time while abroad. This should be less of a problem for AT&T consumers and business clients, as the company has just introduced new Data Global Add-on plans for its jet-hopping customers. AT&T’s new data roaming plans bring the convenience of a reasonably priced data package while traveling outside the country.
AT&T senior VP Mark Collins said that the packages are aimed for customers who want to “experience the same level of wireless connectivity while traveling abroad as they do at home.” The new AT&T Data Global Add-on packages, which can be used in over 130 countries, are as follow:
- 120 MB Data Global Add-on package for $30/month
- 300 MB Data Global Add-on package for $60/month
- 800 MB Data Global Add-on package for $120/month
In lieu of frantically trying to look for a WiFi hotspot, which may not be secure at all, using one of the three packages above can be a headache-free solution. Though 120MB worth of data may not seem much, it should suffice for sending and receiving Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents, and replying to the stream of e-mails. You may want to lay off YouTube and the likes, though. If you somehow need to use more than the allowed monthly quota, there’s an overage fee of $30 for an additional 120MB, which is valid for all three data packages.
So, the next time you need to update your Facebook status while trying to a close a deal in Azerbaijan, having one of the three Data Global Add-on packages from AT&T above will assure you that you won’t come home to some headache-inducing phone bills.
