Mobile virtual network operator US Mobile recently announced that it will be launching on the biggest 4G LTE network in America in summer of this year. Even though the MVNO did not disclose the identities of its infrastructure partners, it did tease that it will be working with two of the best mobile networks in the United States.
The prepaid brand of the number two biggest wireless carrier in America has decided to boost the data gigabyte inclusions on its $40 a month option. Indeed, starting today, mobile users who signed up for Cricket Wireless’ Basic Plan can now expect to enjoy 4 gigabytes of 4G LTE data on a monthly basis, which is up from the previous 3 gigabytes of data allowance.
Here is some good news for those who want to avail of an unlimited option from Verizon Wireless but do not want to get a postpaid plan -- the Big Red now offers unlimited on its prepaid plans. Starting immediately, mobile users can choose to get unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and fast data for $80 a month for one line of service. For good measure, this option also comes with unlimited international text messaging to over 200 countries across the globe, as well as unlimited voice calls to both Canada and Mexico.
Unlimited data offerings may have picked up in popularity in the last few months, but it is good to know that for those who do not want to get an unlimited plan, there are still mobile operators out there that let consumers pay only for the wireless services they actually consume. One such example of a provider is US Mobile.
Not wanting to be left behind, the fifth biggest wireless carrier in the United States has decided to add a unlimited data plan for its prepaid customers. The new unlimited data option from US Cellular for prepaid users comes with a price of $70, and is an addition to its current $35 per month (which includes 1 gigabyte of data) and $45 per month (which includes 5 gigabytes of data) offerings.
Subscribers of Sprint can now pay for mobile service that their loved ones or contacts can use in Mexico and El Salvador. The major US wireless carrier has accomplished this by joining forces with Movistar Mexico and Movistar El Salvador, which are both ran by telecoms giant Telefonica.
Since August of last year, T-Mobile’s One and One Plus unlimited data options have already been live on postpaid, but customers of the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States have yet to see unlimited data make its way to prepaid. Well, their wait is over -- the mobile operator has debuted its new prepaid One spin off, albeit quietly.
The unlimited plan offered by AT&T’s prepaid brand, Cricket Wireless, offers better than average coverage, a reliable network, affordable pricing, and pretty adequate connection speeds at 8 mbps. But because it does not come with mobile hotspot tethering, it might have trouble distancing itself from what other competitors are selling.
The second biggest wireless carrier in America has taken the opportunity to improve a couple of its budget friendly prepaid GoPhone options just recently, but the caveats should not be taken lightly. For the first prepaid plan, unlimited data is made available for $60 a month, and already comes with just 3 mbps of data, plus the connection speeds will slow down even further after the customer goes beyond the 22 gigabyte limit.
Virgin Mobile, a prepaid arm of major US wireless carrier Sprint, is introducing a new option called Data Love Unlimited, which at $60 per month offers customers unlimited 4G LTE voice calls, text messaging, and data. On top of that, this latest plan also comes with mobile optimized video streaming, gaming, and music (video content is in 480p resolution, music is at 500 kbps, and cloud gaming is up to 2 mbps).
