AT&T announced a new $5/day 250MB data pass for tablet devices at the GigaOm Mobilize conference on Thursday, reports CNET.
AT&T positions this as an alternative to paid Wi-Fi hotspot areas such as hotels or airports. The access gives flexibility and a quick last-minute option for consumers, but is likely too expensive for regular use. While the service works best in LTE, it will fall back to HSPA+ if LTE isn't available. AT&T has LTE in 437 markets in the US, second only behind Verizon Wireless.
AT&T will also be offering a $25 1GB option that can be used throughout a three month period. Previously, the cheapest option AT&T had for data access was $14.99 for 250MB over 30 days.
Users can go to the link below to sign up for a session. You can also purchase a data pass via the AT&T All Access app.
