AT&T plans to launch a pay-per-click pay-wall service for its mobile apps
AT&G announced on Monday that it will start rolling out a paywall service that lets customers pay for content with their phones or mobile devices.
The new service will start in the coming weeks in the U.S. and Canada, the company said in a blog post.
The paywall will work across mobile and desktop apps, and customers will be able to choose to pay for individual pieces of content, or pay a per-page fee for a monthly fee.
The company said the service is being rolled out in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
The company declined to provide details about the specific features and pricing of the service.
The announcement comes just days after AT&H unveiled its mobile app, which lets customers use their smartphones to pay with their own money, and its new paywall, which will be available to the public in the near future.
AT&R said the paywall was designed to compete with traditional pay-as-you-go services that use credit card numbers to charge users for content.AT&T previously offered its Pay as You Go service, which charged users $1 for each piece of content they purchased.
AT &T said Pay as you Go was an attempt to reduce costs for its customers.
