AT&T responds to Verizon, cuts wireless plans

First came reports Thursday that Verizon was reducing its wireless plans. Now AT&T has taken less than 24 hours to respond.

AT&T announced new unlimited prices plans, which can be ordered beginning Monday. Current customers can switch plans without penalty or contract extension.

Feature phone customers can get unlimited talk time for $69.99. Family talk customers can get unlimited talk for $119.99. Texting is still $20 for unlimited individual plans and $30 for families.

Smartphone customers, including those who use the popular iPhone, can get unlimited voice and data for $99.99. The new family Talk unlimited plan, which voice and data, is $179.99. Texting is $20 for individuals or $30 for family talk.

The changes bring AT&T in line with Verizon.

Wonder who goes lower next? Sprint offers unlimited talk, data and text for $99. Interesting to see which of the big two gets there first.
