Without much fancy, US Cellular has quietly made some changes to its existing Shared Connect plans by boosting the gigabytes featured in each option, and accordingly, updating some of the pricing as well. The result is that every Shared Connect option now offers more high speed data inclusions, with the rates decreasing, remaining the same, or even increasing.
To summarize, here are the updated Shared Connect inclusions and rates:
2 gigabyte plan (previously 1 gigabyte only) -- From $25 a month, the plan is now priced at $30 a month
4 gigabyte plan (previously 3 gigabytes only) -- From $40 a month, the plan is now priced at $45 a month
8 gigabyte plan (previously 6 gigabytes only) -- From $55 a month, the plan is now priced at $60 a month
16 gigabyte plan (previously 12 gigabytes only) -- The plan’s pricing remains the same at $80 a month
22 gigabyte plan (previously 15 gigabytes only) -- From $90 a month, the plan is now priced at $100 a month
Note that all of the plans listed above feature unlimited domestic voice calls and text messaging, as well as mobile hotspot use. For those who are on the 16 gigabyte or 24 gigabyte option, they will also get to enjoy unlimited voice calls and text messaging from the United States to Canada and Mexico.
Also, customers are expected to pay monthly line connection fees for each handset connected to their plan. For those who are purchasing their device on installment or at full price, know that it comes with a $20 a month connection charge, while any handset bought under a two year agreement are charged at $40 a month.
Adding a basic handset to one’s Shared Connect plan will mean paying another $20 a month, while getting an additional tablet device is priced at $10 a month. The data allotment on any Shared Connect plan is shared across all connected handsets, which makes US Cellular’s plan appealing to families or groups with multiple smartphones.
As for those looking to avail of an individual mobile plan from US Cellular, they might want to check out the wireless carrier’s postpaid single line options, which typically start at $60 a month and already comes with unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and 1 gigabyte of data.
