Whenever you are getting ready to travel abroad you have to figure out what the best option is for staying in touch with family and friends back home. You might choose to only communicate while on Wi-Fi at your hotel, where you can likely send messages and make Wi-Fi calls for free. Though if you want to message and post to social media, navigate around town and have access to the internet while you are out and about, then you definitely want a data plan of some sort.
AT&T has launched its Unlimited &More data plans, including a skinny bundle of live TV channels available around the clock. Over 30 channels are included with select data plans offering unlimited talk, text and data for a flat fee.
