How Low Will Data Plans Go?
There are rumors floating around that AT&T may offer less expensive data plans for the Apple iPhone. Currently, you have to pay $30/month for the data plan. Would you select a $20/month that had some limits? (I guess it would really depend on what those limits were, right?)
How low will smartphone data plans go in today's economic climate? As many people struggle to pay their bills, will mobile phone carriers start lowering prices to help customers? Or, will this threaten their survival? Maybe a lower data plan is simply another ploy to get people to sign up, and then when customers go over on their usage, the carriers send a huge bill!
