You’ll see much more of this in the coming months, but US mobile operator AT&T is one of the first to put its head above the parapet. It’s axed its $30-a-month unlimited data tariffs, in favour of two new monthly plans: $15 for 200MB of data, and $25 for 2GB. The new tariffs apply to smartphone customers but also iPad users, and are part of a wider trend that sees operators trying to row back on earlier promises of ‘unlimited’ data. With customers hungry for streaming video and music, as well as other content, it’s unsurprising. AT&T claims that 98% of its smartphone subscribers use less than 2GB of data a month, so will save money under the new system. Geek bloggers aren’t happy, though. Source: Engadget
