AT&T subsidiary Aio Wireless recently lowered pricing on their three no-contract service plans following similar moves from competitors U.S. Cellular and Ting.

The Basic plan is still the cheapest at the same $40 as before but it now includes twice as much data (500MB at high-speed versus just 250MB before). The mid-tier package is now $5 cheaper and includes an extra half gigabyte of data for a total of 2.5GB at $50.

Data-hungry users will likely be interested in the Pro plan as it offers 5GB of high-speed data for $60. Depending on how much data you use, this might actually be a worse deal than before as the old Pro plan offered 7GB of high-speed data for $70. To get 7GB now, you’d need to add on two 1GB bundles for $10 each, putting you at $80 out of pocket.

Of course, Aio spins this new package as being just $10 more than the Smart plan for twice as much data, but I digress.

All three plans include unlimited talk and text on AT&T’s nationwide network. What’s more, all plans technically include unlimited data as speeds simply slow down once you cross the monthly allotment of data. It’s also worth pointing out that you can save $5 each month by signing up for auto pay which would bring the plans down to $35, $45 and $55, respectively.

Tablet pricing remains unchanged at $15 per month for 250MB of high-speed data.

I work at an Aio store, and one of the biggest changes you failed to point out is that Smartphones weren't technically allowed on the Basic plan prior to this. It happened occasionally but it wasn't supposed to.
