Now Cricket Wireless, which is AT&T’s prepaid service is offering an Unlimited data plan.
For $70 a month, which goes down to $65 a month if you opt into Cricket’s auto-pay system, customers can get unlimited talk, text, and data for either their Cricket smartphones or for handsets they bring themselves. T-Mobile makes an unlimited plan, but for $30 more than Cricket. To kick up the competition, Cricket will offer a $100 credit for T-Mobile customers who make the switch.
This new plan will also not throttle you down once you hit the limit, like others in the past. However, it will be capped at 8Mbps for 4G LTE and 4Mbps for HSPA+. In other words, Cricket’s plan is unlimited in the amount of data you can use, not the speeds at which you can do so.
Cricket’s new unlimited data plan is currently available. If $70 per month is too much, no worries, Cricket will still offer its Basic, Smart, and Pro data plans, which go for $35, $45, and $55 a month, respectively, with auto-pay. Basic includes 2.5GB of 4G LTE data, while Smart includes 5GB and Pro includes 10GB. Regardless of which plan you choose, they all include unlimited talk and text.
