AT&T changes smartphone data plans

It seems that AT&T has changed their smartphone data plans. More bandwidth is always good, right? Well…

Old plans (for the iPad):

250MB: $15/mo ($60/GB)
2GB: $25/mo ($12.50/GB)

New plans:

300MB: $20/mo ($66.67/GB)
3GB: $30/mo ($10/GB)
5GB: $50/mo ($10/GB)

It seems to be only a better deal if you buy the higher tiered data plans. The low usage people seem to get hosed. For a company that had to institute caps to control their out of control data usage, you’d think they’d make the cheaper plan, well, cheaper to encourage less 3G/LTE usage.
