AT&T today announced its new Passport packages that combine international talk, text and data rates in three different offerings.
The packages can be added to a domestic postpaid plan and are valid for 30 days, expiring automatically and not renewing afterward.
The $30 package includes unlimited messaging and Wi-Fi, 120MB of data ($0.25 for each additional megabyte), and $1 per minute calling rates. The $60 package includes unlimited messaging and Wi-Fi, 300MB of data ($0.20 for each additional megabyte), and $0.50 per minute calling rates. The $120 package includes unlimited messaging and Wi-Fi, 800MB of data ($0.15 for each additional megabyte), and $0.35 per minute calling rates.
All plans can be purchased at the same prices with only data included for use with tablets and laptops.
For customers who travel more regularly AT&T offers AT&T Global, which offers the same rates and services at Passport but on a recurring monthly basis. Those plans require a three-month minimum.
AT&T says it supplies talk, text and data coverage in more than 150 countries and Wi-Fi hotspot access in 35 countries.
The new offer from AT&T comes almost exactly one year after T-Mobile announced it was doing away with international data and text roaming rates for its customers. T-Mobile charges $0.20 per minute for international roaming voice.
