DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With the start of the new school year quickly approaching, AT&T* is excited to introduce AT&T Study Abroad, an international roaming package designed exclusively for students and teachers participating in a study abroad program. The package will be available August 9th—just in time for school.
Instead of signing up for local wireless service while abroad—which means family and friends back home must call an international number to reach you, AT&T Study Abroad offers students and teachers the convenience of having their existing AT&T device, mobile number and content during their stay. Plus they can take advantage of significant savings when calling, messaging or using data in more than 150 countries.
Eligible customers can choose from two package options:
- The $60/month package includes 250 voice minutes, 250 outgoing messages and 250MB of cellular data.
- The $90/month package includes 400 voice minutes, 400 outgoing messages, 400MB of cellular data and 1GB of Wi-Fi on eligible devices.
Customers can call 877-777-4186 to sign up for one of the new Study Abroad package options, beginning August 9.
