Just a couple of weeks after AT&T began allowing its prepaid GoPhone customers to access its HSPA+ and LTE networks, the carrier has revealed that it's got another big change in store for GoPhone. AT&T has told CNET that it plans to eliminate some of its GoPhone data plan options on June 20. GoPhone customers can currently pay $5 per month for 50MB of data, $15 for 200MB or $25 for 1GB, all of which can be added to its $25 250 minute/unlimited text or its $50 unlimited talk/text plans. AT&T also offers a $65 smartphone-specific plan with unlimited talk and text as well as 1GB of data.

Once June 20 rolls around, only the $5/50MB data add-on will be available to the $25 plan, while none of those add-ons will be compatible with the $50 option. AT&T says that its new GoPhone plans will be revealed in the coming weeks. However, the carrier wouldn't shed any light on exactly what those offerings may be, saying only that it intends to offer "a variety of plans." AT&T's full statement to CNET on the changes is as follows:

"We're making some changes to our AT&T GoPhone prepaid plans to simplify our offers and better align with what customers are choosing and telling us they want. We've begun letting customers know about the changes in advance, and we'll have more information on new, additional plan options soon."

While these existing GoPhone data add-ons don't offer a huge bucket of megabytes, they're good fits for consumers that are light data users, especially now that AT&T is allowing GoPhone customers onto its HSPA+ and LTE networks. AT&T has had a bit of a renewed focus on prepaid as of late with the addition of LTE support for GoPhone and the launch of Aio Wireless, so hopefully the big blue carrier will keep things up with some new, competitive prepaid offerings. Stay tuned.
