Could it be? Is AT&T addressing bill shock by simply trying to make international data roaming costs reasonable? From the looks of its new Data Global Add-On deals, that might be the case. The baseline price is up from last year at $ 30 per month, but you’ll get 120MB of data for your trouble — an amount that used to cost $ 50. The next step up not only costs less than before, at $ 60 versus the old $ 100, but ups the data ever so gently to 300MB in the process. AT&T’s maximum allotment is still a relatively modest 800MB, but at $ 120 a month, it’s a lot easier to swallow for a European vacation than the earlier $ 200 for the same data cap. The real advantage for all three may be the overage rate: rather than bill by the byte, AT&T is now charging $ 30 for every 120MB over your limit, so you won’t have to fork over the equivalent of a car payment just because you couldn’t resist posting to Instagram from the Alps. We still think dedicated international services like Xcom Global (or an unlocked phone and a prepaid SIM) are the most efficient ways to go, but the carrier-bound among us will catch a big break when the new international plans take effect June 1st.
