The online ad states $49.99 onetime cost for its year. What is the price for 2nd year?

I just got finished chatting with customer service to ask this very question. First of all, your ONLY choice is ATT. So, if you're fine with that, great. Personally, I hated the idea that I had no choice. Second, it goes back to their regular price, which currently is $14.99 a month for 250MB. Pretty expensive for not a lot of data in my opinion. Hope that helps.

After the first year it will be AT&Ts standard rates for tablets, currently $14.99 per month for the 250mb plan.

Check thier website for larger packages and pricing.

Here is the info regarding the 4G data plans from the Support pages.

Can I get more details about the data plan for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G LTE Wireless model?

AT&T is the carrier for 4G LTE service on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9'. If you're not currently an AT&T customer, you'll create a new account with AT&T on your Kindle Fire to use the service.

The $49.99 plan for the first 12 months of service includes 250MB a month of data, plus:

20GB of additional Cloud Drive storage
A free $10 Amazon Appstore promotional credit

The $49.99 package is only available in the U.S. International roaming plans are available directly from AT&T. After the first year, you can choose and purchase a data plan directly from AT&T.

If you want more than 250MB a month in the first year, you can choose to purchase 3GB or 5GB plans on your Kindle Fire in addition to the $49.99 plan.

Based on the latest pricing from AT&T, the price plans are $30/mo. for 3GB and $50/mo. for 5GB. For the most up-to-date information, view the pricing plans directly at

A prerequisite for not locking the 4G capable Kindle to AT&T would be user-installable SIM cards. It seems that Amazon eschewed long ago user-installable anything, for better or for worse.

As Pineapple said, higher traffic plans are much cheaper per MB than the basic one.
