AT&T is rolling out new data plans for tablets and it's priced similarly to the old one, except now you have the option to either prepay or postpay your bill. Prepaid data plans and Postpaid data plans both cost the same: either $15 for 250MB or $25 for 2GB. The slight difference between the two plans are in the overages costs: postpaid data plans are charged $10 per 1GB of overage, prepaid data plans are charged $25 for 2GB of overage. Both plans are still month-to-month, no contract required.
