SunTrust Pays Mobile Banking App Data Charges for AT&T Customers

Oct 6, 2017

ATLANTA, Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SunTrust Banks, Inc. (NYSE: STI) will now pay most* data usage charges for AT&T Wireless customers using its mobile banking app. This service is available to AT&T Wireless and AT&T PREPAID customers who access the SunTrust Mobile App on AT&T's domestic wireless network.

"At SunTrust, mobile banking is used more than any other channel and is growing at 20 percent a year," said Ameesh Vakharia, SunTrust's Omni Channel Executive. "Making it easier and more convenient for clients to bank with us are key factors in allowing us to help more people achieve financial confidence."

Beginning this month, AT&T customers can enjoy domestic data sponsorship for SunTrust banking features within the application with no need to enroll in the program. Sponsoring the data used by AT&T customers engaging with SunTrust's Mobile Banking App means the data usage should not appear on the customer's AT&T bill statement.
