AT&T’s all-you-can-eat data plan died Wednesday, and plenty of wireless customers mourned over their loss. But is it really a big deal? It depends on the type of data consumer you are.

The new tiered pricing structure gives AT&T customers the following options:

  1. 200 MB for $15 per month. If you exceed the limit, AT&T will charge $15 extra in units of 200 MB.
  2. 2 GB for $25 per month. If you surpass this limit, you can pay an extra $10 per extra gigabyte.
  3. Current smartphone users can continue their unlimited data for $30 per month — but if they switch to one of the cheaper plans, they can’t go back to unlimited.
  4. To tether your smartphone to a computer, you must use the 2-GB, $25 plan, and pay an extra $20 for the tethering privilege.

For some, these changes stink. For others, it won’t affect their lives much. Which plan is right for you? Let’s break down the options.

Think I will probably save the big 5 bucks a month and go for the 2 gig a month plan. Especially since 90% of time I'm using data heavy, it's at home on my wi-fi....which doesn't count toward your usage.

yeah, no reason NOT to save a few here and there.........
