It has been a busy couple of weeks for AT&T -- last week it had announced that it had completed its buy out of Time Warner, while dealing with some speculation that after finishing this mega merger deal, it might now move on to getting its hands on Otter Media (which the carrier partially owns together with The Chernin Group).
Starting this Friday, Sprint is launching a new unlimited data plan designed specifically for senior users. Enter the carrier’s new Unlimited 55+ plan, which offers two lines of service that feature unlimited data, minutes of voice calls, and text messaging at a price of $35 per month (that is, if the customer signs up for the Auto Pay service).
The number one wireless carrier in America is launching a new plan in the state of Florida that offers one line of service with unlimited data for $60 a month, or a couple of lines for $80 a month. The said plan is only made available to mobile users are who 55 years old or older. While it is true that the Verizon Wireless is only offering the plan in the Sunshine State as of the moment, the carrier, however, is open to the idea of expanding the deal to other states some time in the future.
According to the results of a recent survey conducted by Cowen and Company, the amount of postpaid mobile customers who have availed of an unlimited data plan has increased to 53.4 percent. This growth is truly remarkable considering that three years ago, this category of users was only at 22.7 percent. The latest percentage also represents a steady improvement over the 51.6 percent recorded in the previous quarter.
Want to enjoy unlimited minutes of voice calls, text messages, and data, and pay only $15 every month? You can do exactly that if you sign up for any one of Teltik’s voice call plans right now. And for good measure, the mobile service provider is also promising to give $50 port-in credit on selected plans, but one will need to hurry though -- the port-in credit deal is only good until January 5th.
According to a report recently released by research firm JD Power, consumers who are subscribers of unlimited data plans are likely to report less network problems as compared to customers under tiered wireless plans. In its report, JD Power is showing that those unlimited data users encounter an average of 11 total network quality issues for every 100 connections.
There was much rejoicing when Verizon Wireless had decided to resurrect its unlimited data plan back in February early this year. After all, subscribers of the plan get to enjoy unlimited data without any major caveats. But then again, the Big Red has now opted to introduce some changes to its offering (albeit quietly), and they may not be welcome news for mobile users.
US Mobile’s new Unlimited WiFi plan may well be considered the biggest of its kind in the world, in terms of providing WiFi coverage. For a price of just $10 a month, the offering gives mobile users access to more than 60 million hotspots in over 120 countries around the planet, as well as more than 35 million hotspots in the United States alone.
