AT&T brings unlimited calling to Mexico through its World Connect program
AT&T has just announced unlimited calling to Mexico for its users through their newly-updated AT&T World Connect program. For just $5 per month for each line, subscribers can not only place unlimited calls to Mexico, but can also place calls to over 225 additional countries for reduced rates. The only real requirement, other than the $5 monthly fee, is that you must be a postpaid subscriber. Additionally, thanks to AT&T’s revamped Mobile Share Value plan they introduced last year, users can send unlimited SMS and MMS messages to Mexico. We know this has been around for quite some time, but it’s worth noting that many AT&T subscribers can now take full advantage of communicating with users in Mexico.
AT&T’s recent acquisition of Iusacell, the Mexico-based mobile carrier, has a lot to do with this new deal. AT&T is looking to expand beyond the borders of the US, and this is just the first step in doing so. Iusacell was Mexico’s third-largest mobile carrier, and AT&T bought them for $2.5 billion. AT&T notes that Mexico is the most-called country from the carrier’s customer base, so this is quite a bit of good news for many people on USA’s second largest carrier.
