The U.S. carrier AT&T has tweaked its Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value cellular plans, offering subscribers unlimited international messaging at no additional cost.
More than 100 different countries are supported by the updated packages, and AT&T also notes that picture and video messages can be sent free of charge, too. “Current Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value customers will automatically benefit from this offer,” the carrier said, adding that the change will come into effect from Feb. 28.
Besides the refreshed Mobile Share plans, AT&T has also introduced a new inexpensive World Connect Value package for international calling. In a press release, the carrier explained:
AT&T is also excited to introduce international calling from the U.S. to any number anytime to over 35 countries, including Canada and Mexico, for 1¢ per minute with our new international calling package, World Connect ValueSM.
The news comes following a roaming agreement signed with British carrier Everything Everywhere (EE) in December, which allows AT&T subscribers to connect to EE’s 4G LTE network while visiting Britain.
Spurred on by a dose of healthy competition with rival carrier T-Mobile, AT&T also unveiled its “Best Ever” family price plans recently, offering unlimited calling, unlimited messaging, and 10GB of data for subscribers to share from $130 per month. These latest changes should be appreciated by customers, but are they enough to stop AT&T subscribers breaking up with the carrier and signing with T-Mobile?
