AT&T announced on Friday that its top tier Mobile Share Value plan customers will receive more data for no extra cost beginning November 2nd. Once the new plans go into effect, customers paying $40 for 2GB will be upgraded to 3GB and those paying $70 for 4GB will be upgraded to 6GB. All Mobile Share Value plans will also include unlimited talk, text and international messaging for no additional charge.

FROM EARLIER: AT&T doubles data plan sizes in huge limited-time promo

The perks don’t stop there — AT&T is also extending its Double the Data offer on Mobile Share Value plans from 15GB to 50GB until November 15th. Any new or existing customers who sign up by November 15th will receive 30GB of data for the price of 15GB.

AT&T made the news earlier this week when the FTC alleged that the carrier had been throttling its unlimited data customers. AT&T struck back almost immediately, claiming that the allegations are “baseless and have nothing to do with the substance of our network management program.”

Lower prices and extended promotions might not be enough to counteract the potential PR nightmare of a lawsuit involving the mistreatment of its customers, but they definitely won’t hurt.

UPDATE: AT&T got in touch with us to clarify that although existing customers can take advantage of the offer, they’ll need to go online, use the myATT app, call AT&T or visit a store.
