AT&T Offers New International Data Plan for iPhone Users


[qi:91] A lot of folks had been grumbling about getting hit by huge data charges when traveling overseas with their iPhones. Now AT&T (T) is introducing a new international plan that gives iPhone users 50 MB of data per month to browse the web, check e-mail and access other information in more than 29 countries, including Canada, China, Mexico and in areas throughout Europe and Asia. This is going to set you back $59.99 a month, in addition to what you already pay. This works out to just over $1 a megabyte, which compares very favorably to the current $0.0195 per kilobyte, but it is still too expensive. At that price I would expect them to offer flat rates and unlimited data.



My VZW Global E-Mail & Web package is “unlimited” and costs $65. The only pet peeve I have is that it doesn’t include SMS!! Of course it’s not really “unlimited” either if you go over some arbitrary and unknowable limit.
