TTU/TTUHSC Business Service Agreement - Amended AT&T Mobility Contract
Communication Services is excited to announce the contract between Texas Tech and AT&T Mobility has been amended. New voice plans are available which provide a lower cost per minute and as part of the new agreement all existing customers must be migrated to one of these plans. The good news is Communication Services will work with AT&T Mobility to transition all customers from their old plan to the new plan that closely matches in number of minutes available. This transition is scheduled to begin on October 1 st and should be reflected, along with the increased discount, on the bill you receive in late October. Some of the other highlights of this new agreement are:
- The PayGo plan becomes the National Flat Rate (NFR) plan. The cost per minute stays at $0.09, but now there WILL NOT be any roaming or long distance charges anywhere in the nation. Previously the $0.09 per minute was limited to Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
- All plans, including the NFR, have free mobile-to-mobile calling.
- Rollover is included on all GSM plans and existing customers will retain all of their current rollover minutes when they are transitioned to the new plans.
- All plans include 100 free text messages.
- A 30% discount is available on accessories (excludes the Apple iPhone accessories)
Please note that by default the following features will be disabled by AT&T Mobility on new devices: Internet Pay Per Use, MediaNet Pay Per Use, Multimedia Pay Per Use, and Push to Talk. If these features are needed, except for Push to Talk, they may be added as a separate feature plan with departmental/vice president approval.
Texas Tech will now be receiving a 26% discount on monthly voice and data service for business use.
