AT&T has launched a new international text package for
consumers that wish to send international text messages at a lower rate
than the standard pay per use rate.
The International Long Distance
Text Messaging Package costs $9.99 per month for 100 text messages and
does not include multimedia messages, which are still charged at the
per message rate of 50 cents per message send and 25 cents receive for
international messages. The overage charge for every message sent over
the initial 100 is 20 cents per message, the same as pay per use rates
for sending messages while receiving messages counts as a normal text message charged at 15 cents per message.
