AT&T's Data Prices Get Slightly Less Brutal

As of Sunday, AT&T is going to have some new data plans on offer. It's not some super-sweet double-data-deal, but it doesn't suck either. Basically, you can add a gig of data to your plan for five bucks.

Here's how it breaks down:

Old plan: 2GB for $25
New plan: 3GB for $30

Old plan: 4GB for $45 (with mobile hotspot / tethering)
New plan: 5GB for $50

Those apply to smartphones and tablets, regardless of 3G/4G HSPA+/LTE. There's also an updated baseline plan for smartphones:

Old plan: 200MB for $15
New plan: 300MB for $20

So, y'know, this is nothing revolutionary, but it does make AT&T's data prices just a little bit better. And don't worry, if you've already got a plan you're happy with you won't be forced to switch. Otherwise, you gotta wait til Sunday.[AT&T]
