AT&T earlier on Thursday unveiled changes to its mobile share plans that would offer savings to people who sign up for the service without signing a contract, meaning they pay full price for a new phone, bring their phone, or sign up for the monthly installment program, AT&T Next.

For an additional $10 per month, individuals can double their allotted data; $20 more per month provides 2GB data. Suffice it to say, those who use very little data might be better served with a prepaid plan.
