AT&T's Aio Wireless Offers Unlimited Talk/Text/Data with No Contract

AT&T has launched a new subsidiary -- Aio Wireless (pronounced "A-O") -- to deliver a new nationwide wireless service for consumers interested in value pricing without an annual contract.

Aio kicks off today Houston, Orlando and Tampa, offering a pre-paid, unlimited talk/text/data plan with no annual contract. Pricing ranges from $35 to $70 per month.  Download speeds on AT&T's 4G network are capped at 4 Mbps.

Aio expects the service to roll out in multiple markets across the U.S. over the next year.

“We talked with no-annual-contract customers and created our service around what they want.  They want simple, easy plan choices with unlimited offers; first-class service at affordable prices; great devices; nationwide voice and data coverage; and no annual contracts. Today’s wireless customers don't want to compromise,” said Jennifer Van Buskirk, president of Aio Wireless. “We are set up to win over value-conscious customers who are increasingly moving towards smartphones and mobile broadband.”

Devices offered include smartphones, tablets, and feature phones from Samsung, Nokia, ZTE and others.
