AT&T on Monday unveiled simplified new rate plans for business customers on the carrier’s Mobile Select and Equipment Installment Plans (EIP).
According to AT&T, the new plans feature pooled data across lines as well as talk and text options for smartphones and feature phones and EIP options with zero percent interest financing. The plans are ideal for business customers using 100 lines or more, the carrier said.
“We want to simplify wireless for our business customers,” said vice president of AT&T Mobility product management Danessa Lambdin. “AT&T Mobile Select plans and Equipment Installment Plans let customers focus on managing their business instead of managing their mobility solutions. Features like pooled data and smartphone plan discounts for No Annual Service Contracts can help customers save costs as well.”
The new plans will include unlimited talk with unlimited calls within the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and unlimited international long distance calling to Canada and Mexico; unlimited texting within and from the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to select countries; and pooled data to enable light users to balance out heavy users within a single billing account.
The pooled data is offered in buckets ranging from 1GB to 10 GB for $35 to $80 per month with no annual service contract or $60 to $105 with a 2-year commitment for AT&T Mobile Select plans for smartphones. The same data buckets are available for $5 to $75 per month for data-only devices – like tablets, connected devices, laptops and netbooks – on the Mobile select plan.
