Basking Ridge, NJ -- A new promotion is letting summer travelers to Europe enjoy all-time low prices when they stay in touch using AT&T Wireless.
Customers enrolled in AT&T Wireless' Discounted International Roaming plan can now talk on their wireless phones for just $.89 per minute while in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland - an additional $.10 per-minute reduction off the plan's already discounted pricing and a $.40 per-minute savings for customers not already enrolled in the plan. The $.89 per-minute rate also applies to calls made or received in Greece - also a substantial $.40 per-minute reduction off the usual rate.
AT&T Wireless will waive one month's service charge for customers who enroll in Discounted International Roaming before September 30, 2004, when this promotion expires. The monthly service charge for Discounted International Roaming is $5.99 and entitles customers to sharply reduced per-minute rates for calls placed and received while visiting more than 20 of the most-traveled European countries. Customers enrolled in the plan also receive discounted rates for calls made from AT&T Wireless' owned network in the U.S. to other countries.
On a related note, another new promotion from AT&T Wireless offers additional savings to consumers who frequently call abroad from the U.S. AT&T Wireless will waive one month's service charge of $3.99 for customers who enroll in the company's Enhanced Discounted International Dialing plan before October 28, 2004. Enhanced Discounted International Dialing offers some of AT&T Wireless' lowest rates ever on calls to more than 220 countries and territories from the company's owned network in the U.S. - for example, a per-minute rate of $.06 for calls to the United Kingdom and Taiwan; $.07 per minute for calls to Japan, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, and Spain; and $.09 per minute for calls to Mexico and Hong Kong.
Note: As with domestic wireless calls, customers use airtime when calling to or from international locations. If a customer calls abroad while roaming in the U.S., roaming charges may also apply. In addition, certain calls to wireless devices abroad may incur a per-minute surcharge. After the Discounted International Roaming promotion expires on September 30, 2004, the usual low per-minute roaming rates will apply.
