You'll soon pay more to become an AT&T customer.
An expanded wireless data plan that the company is rolling out this weekend comes with a price tag. While AT&T customers will be able to use more data on their phones, prices will increase accordingly.
The new rates will go into effect on Sunday, but only new customers will be affected. Existing customers can stay on their current plan, or change to one of the new plans: 300-megabytes for $20, or 3-gigabyte plan for $30.
Mobile data usage is increasing dramatically year to year, which is why AT&T says they are offering new customers these new data plans upfront. Currently, those who go over the limit on data plans can face hefty fees.
Sprint is the only national carrier that provides unlimited data for its customers. But all of them have raised prices, ended perks, or stiffened penalties over the last year.
