AT&T GoPhone customers are in for some good news, as the carrier is adding more data and a hotspot option at no additional cost.

In other words, AT&T's no contract and pre-paid service will soon be more attractive, increasing the amount of data smartphone customers can use each month without increasing the fees as well.

"Beginning April 25, AT&T 1 GoPhone customers will benefit from enhanced smartphone plans, which now provide more data at no additional cost. And, the new plans give customers the capability to use their smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot - all with access to the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network and with no annual contract," AT&T announced in a press release.

"Today's consumers expect great value and choice, which is exactly what we're bringing to our GoPhone customers," further touted Mark Collins, AT&T Mobility senior vice president of data and voice products. "By adding more data and enabling a Wi-Fi hotspot capability at no additional cost and with no annual contract, we're giving customers more for less, and making it even easier for them to enjoy their smartphones the way they want - all on a superior, reliable network."

AT&T GoPhone customers who are currently paying $60 a month for 2GB will get 2.5GB starting next week, while those paying $40 per month for 250MB and 500 minutes of talk will get double that data, i.e. 500MB. The Wi-Fi hotspot option will be available for the 2.5GB plan, which also comes with unlimited talk.

Moreover, the carrier will also introduce a new $45 plan that will offer 1GB of data and unlimited talk, but this option will only be available through Walmart stores nationwide.

In addition to these changes, AT&T GoPhone is also enhancing its offers for basic/messaging phone plans, adding a new option for $45 per month. This plan will bring unlimited data, unlimited talk and text, as well as unlimited texts to Mexico, Canada, and over 100 select countries.
