AT&T has created a class-based system with different fee amounts depending on the class assigned to a given campaign during the registration process. AT&T has also selected The Campaign Registry (TCR) as a third-party vendor to run their campaign registries. Bandwidth customers can choose to either register their A2P campaigns with TCR directly or work with Bandwidth to register campaign information with TCR.

AT&T's grace period for registration has ended on March 1, 2022. All registered outgoing traffic to AT&T incurs a $0.002 surcharge for SMS and a $0.0035 surcharge for MMS. All unregistered outgoing traffic to AT&T incurs a $0.004 surcharge for SMS and a $0.0035 for MMS. In addition, varying rates for the classes haven't gone into effect yet; therefore, all surcharges are charged at a flat rate based on the registration status.

Note: AT&T has delayed the previously announced higher MMS surcharge ($0.005) for all unregistered traffic until further notice.

Below are the classifications established by TCR and AT&T. For use case definitions and information about the 10DLC registration process, please see Registering Brands and Campaigns for 10DLC.

Note: Special use cases will require additional vetting. The classification process and risk classification are proprietary to TCR.
