AT&T adds free data roaming in Mexico to GoPhone plan

Monday 17 August 2015 | 16:58 CET | News
AT&T is adding free data roaming in Mexico and Canada for some of its prepaid customers. Starting 21 August, customers on the USD 60 GoPhone plan can use their 4 GB of monthly data also when roaming in Mexico and Canada. The plan already comes with unlimited calls and texts from the US to Mexico and Canada (landline and mobile numbers). Customers who automatically top up will get a USD 5 per month discount in the plan. The offers follow the launch by rival America Movil in Mexico of free roaming in the US and calls to the US for prepaid mobile customers.
