Yes, that's true, so you might get by with the 450 peak minute AT&T plan
for $20 less, bringing the cost down to around $80, which is only twice
as much as it would cost you on PP for something similar.
One other big advantage on PP is if you do go a little over on data, you
buy more MB by the MB, not in 200MB blocks.
Clearly PP is not for someone that uses a lot of data, but with so much
wi-fi around it's relatively easy to control data usage for most people.
