Here’s some more out of that AT&T leak that we’ve been picking through. The latest find (brought to my attention, again, by @deferom on Twitter) holds interesting tidbits about the coming plans – prepaid and postpaid – that AT&T will have to debut alongside its LTE network.
That information seems to pricing information. The document in question (titled “PSD_LTE_Tier_v2.3_11.09.docx”) is from November of 2009. However, it is very likely that the data is completely relevant. After all, building out a network to cover the entire country has to take years of planning. So, with that in mind, here’s the data:
There will be three plans. They will cost $30, $60, and $80. The data caps go from 5, 10, and 20 GB, respectively, though it seems to be significantly more complicated beyond that. For example, there are postpaid “speed boosts,” which do just what the name suggests: give your plan additional speed, instead of data. We even have information on prepaid plans.
Without going in to the specifics that you’ll find after the break, the major news here is that AT&T will be able to throttle and charge when you go over your plans. There will also be prepaid plans for LTE laptops, notebooks, and possibly tablets. AT&T will offer speed boosts for an additional cost, but that will get you faster download and upload speeds. Those speed boosts will expire after a certain amount of time (the more expensive the boost plan, the longer it is effective).
The rest of the information (and trust us, there’s a lot of it) can be found after the break!
