Cricket Wireless, a prepaid brand owned by AT&T, has boosted the amount of 4G LTE data that it will provide for prepaid customers.
Cricket's plans start at $35 monthly at the cheapest, to $60 monthly for those who have heavy data requirements. All of the prepaid service provider's plans already include unlimited calls and text messaging on top of the capped data allotment.
If one really wants to avail of the lowest rates, then signing up for Auto Pay may be a wise idea. Doing so will have users saving about $5 off of their monthly bills.
Cricket Wireless has also decided to announce a brand new rate plan for users with extensive data needs. The prepaid brand is calling this new rate the Advanced plan. It includes 20 gigabytes of data for $60 every month. Again, those who sign up for Auto Pay will enjoy $5 off, which means they will only $55 every month.
For reference, here are the updated plans of Cricket Wireless:
Basic Plan -- $40 (or $35 if customers sign up for Auto Pay), with 2.5 gigabytes of high-speed data (originally only 1 gigabyte of high-speed data)
Smart Plan -- $50 (or $45 if customers sign up for Auto Pay), with 5 gigabytes of high-speed data (originally only 3 gigabytes of high-speed data)
Pro Plan -- $60 (or $55 if customers sign up for Auto Pay), with 10 gigabytes of high-speed data
Advanced Plan (brand new plan) -- $60 (or $55 if customers sign up for Auto Pay), with 20 gigabytes of high-speed data
Cricket Wireless is also offering one free month of service to new customers who decide to switch from other carriers and sign up for the Smart Plan, Pro Plan, or the Advanced Plan. The customers will have to complete at least two months with Cricket though. Only then will the carrier give them a month free.
According to Janna Ducich, Marketing Vice President and Chief Marketing Office of Cricket Wireless, they aim to change the prepaid mobile industry by offering a great combination of quality mobile devices, low prices, and more high speed LTE data.
Ducich further explained that Cricket's Advanced Plan is a much better option than T-Mobile's Simply Prepaid $60 plan. The Advance Plan gives 15 gigabytes more high speed LTE data on a network with more LTE coverage and at costs that are much lower (with taxes and fees included already).
