Published on October 23, 2013

If you are a tablet user who is frequently on-the-go or traveling, you may be pleased to hear about this pay per day data based internet service recently released by AT&T.

Tablet users can now purchase $5 day passes that offer 250mb of data usage.

This means affordable internet on the go, without having to subscribe to a plan.

You can purchase these data passes directly from tablets that have cellular connectivity. It is a good alternative to, say, hotel internet or purchasing wi-fi access at the airport.

Want to have internet on your tablet for more than 24 hours?

AT&T also offers a $25 option that purchases 1GB of data to be used whenever you would like over a period of 3 months.

"We really think that a Wi-Fi only tablet is good, but it is not good enough," said Chris Penrose, senior VP of AT&T.
