Dallas, Texas, May 31, 2012

AT&T* today announced a new lineup of AT&T Data Global Add-On packages that will make it more affordable than ever for wireless customers–both consumer and business customers--to enjoy data services while traveling internationally. Beginning June 1, the updated packages allow customers to enjoy the convenience of data access on their AT&T device while traveling abroad in more than 130 countries at a significant cost savings.1

The new international data package tiers are:

  • 120 MB Data Global Add-on package for $30/month
  • 300 MB Data Global Add-on package for $60/month
  • 800 MB Data Global Add-on package for $120/month

The overage rate for all packages is $30 for 120MB.

AT&T is streamlining its international data offerings while giving customers more data per bucket.  All three international data packages are designed to give customers the freedom and flexibility to use their smartphone, tablet or laptop to stay in touch via email, update their status on popular social networking sites and enjoy convenient access to information such as maps and directions, without having to search for a Wi-Fi hotspot.

“We want our customers to experience the same level of wireless connectivity while traveling abroad as they do at home,” said Mark Collins, senior vice president, Data and Voice Products, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.  “Whether they choose to surf the Internet, use GPS on their device, respond to emails, or update their social network status, we are making it more affordable than ever for them to enjoy data services internationally.”

AT&T’s wireless customers enjoy a robust selection of world phones and international discount data, messaging and voice packages, along with the best global coverage of any U.S. wireless provider2. With voice service in more than 225 countries, AT&T customers can travel around the globe and make and receive calls on the same wireless number they use at home.  For more information on other AT&T international services, including discount packages for messaging, voice and international long distance services, as well as travel tips, visit www.att.com/global.
