AT&T talks exotic "variable pricing model"

AT&T CEO Randall L. Stephenson talked at a investor conference today according to the Wall St. Journal.

He said that AT&T is carrying half of the nation’s wireless data traffic. He said that carriers will eventually move to a “variable pricing model,” and that it was inevitable that heavy users should pay more than low users. 

By “eventually”, he means starting in a few weeks.  The iPad will be on a prepaid $15/month for 250MB and $30/month for Unlimited.  Get used to it.

He also revealed that AT&T wasn’t in a big hurry to roll out 4G LTE, expecting it to gain momentum in 2012.  Way to push the envelope.
