U.S. Cellular Lowers Samsung Galaxy Tab Cost With 5GB Data Plan

Posted by at 6:03 pm on April 9, 2011

U.S. Cellular has restructured its price plans for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, an Android 2.2 powered 7-inch tablet. U.S. Cellular is offering the Galaxy Tab for different prices depending on which contract plan it is purchased with.

Customers that wish to pick up the Tab with a two-year, 5GB data per month plan can do so for $199.99 – a whopping $200 less than the cost when purchased with the cheaper monthly 200MB plan ($399.99). That makes the U.S. Cellular Galaxy Tab much more competitive for consumers look for a large monthly data bucket.

U.S. Cellular’s 5GB plan is available for $54.99 per month. Unlimited messaging costs an extra $20 per month, bringing the total to $74.99 per month. Both data plans include use of the device as a portable 3G Wi-Fi hotspot and charge $0.25 per megabyte overage on data.

The carrier’s 200MB plan costs $14.99 per month, with the same extra $20 required for unlimited messaging and the same $0.25/MB overage fees. 3G Wi-Fi hotspot use is not supported on the 200MB plan, and wouldn’t make much sense even if it were.

This pricing scheme has worked well in Europe for years. It complicates the pricing structures quite a bit, but it is more flexible and seems to be more fair when presented to the customer properly.
