Straight Talk adds support for AT&T-compatible LTE devices
Prepaid carrier Straight Talk has expanded its device support to include smartphones or tablets that are compatible with AT&T's LTE network. A product page <a href="http://www.droid-life.com/2013/09/13/straight-talk-prepaid-service-now-supports-att-lte/">noticed</a> by <em>Droid-Life</em> <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2013/09/13/straight-talk-now-accepts-att-compatible-lte-devices/?utm_medium=feed&utm_source=Feed_Classic&utm_campa ign=Engadget&ncid=rss_semi">and</a> <em>Engadget</em> lists dedicated LTE-capable <A href="http://www.shopstraighttalk.com/bpdirect/straighttalk/Start.do?action=view&locale=en&market=GSM4&product Family=simcards">SIM cards</a> for unlocked AT&T devices, which can be used for the company's $45/month unlimited plan.<br /><br />AT&T recently began <A href="http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/30/expanding.limited.service.area.to.across.united.st ates.in.mid.september/">nationwide rollout</a> of its own prepaid service, which is marketed under the brand Aio Wireless. The service provides several tiers, starting at a 250MB plan for $40/month and topping out with 2GB and 7GB caps for $55 and $70, respectively.<br />
<br />
Aio's plans appear to cost more than Straight Talk's "unlimited" offerings, however the latter carrier quietly throttles data speeds. Vague language in the terms and conditions simply notes that data speeds may be reduced when usage is found to be "abnormally high" or "adversely impacts" the carrier's network, rather than placing an explicit cap on full-speed usage.
