Starting June 21st, AT&T is officially adding LTE 4G support and a new set of plans to its GoPhone prepaid network. The base tier costs $25 per month, and includes unlimited texting and 250 voice minutes, but no data unless a person pays an extra $5 for 50MB. With a $40 plan people can upgrade to 500 minutes and 200MB of data, expandable to 300MB for $5.

$50 enables unlimited calling, but doesn't include any data except for Wi-Fi. The top $60 tier bundles 2GB; to that subscribers can only add another 50MB for $5. The unmodified plan does, however, double the amount of data AT&T previously attached to a $65 tier. Now vanished are universal 50MB, 200MB, and 1GB bolt-ons, which cost $5, $15, and $25, respectively.

LTE coverage is available anywhere within AT&T's 4G network, which covers 278 markets. Any unlocked GSM-ready LTE phone can be used with the service. Alternately, people can choose to buy a Samsung Galaxy Express (below), which is launching for GoPhone on the 21st at a cost of $250.

It looks like an attempt to gouge customers from ATT, in no way comparable to the T-Mobile plan.
