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.
The largest mobile operator in the United States has decided to revive its unlimited data plan. Starting today, Verizon Wireless is now offering a Verizon Unlimited tier that delivers unlimited data use (in the US only), as well as unlimited voice calls and text messaging, for $80 a month.
Mobile virtual network operator The People’s Operator is debuting a new rate plan called Infinity, and it offers customers unlimited data for as low as $55 a month. Those who are interested must note a few things though. For one, the Infinity unlimited plan is only made available to customers who possess CDMA compatible mobile devices.
Let the battle begin. Two major US wireless carriers, Sprint and T-Mobile, have just introduced competing new unlimited data options for their respective customers, especially those who are okay with the idea of watching video content at lower quality. The good news is that the carriers’ new plans are cheaper than the usual $95 per month that each mobile operator charges for unlimited data.
Are you currently subscribed to one of AT&T’s old unlimited data plans? You might want to reconsider continuing to avail of these plans beginning next year. That is because the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States is planning to increase the price of its grandfathered unlimited data plan by February of 2016.
This Halloween, Sprint has announced brand new wireless plans, and is even incorporating unlimited 2G data to its Family Share Packs. Beginning October 30th of this year, the wireless carrier is offering a new $20 plan dubbed the Sprint Starter Unlimited Data Plan, wherein subscribers will get to enjoy 1 gigabyte of LTE high speed data every month, including unlimited 2G data, plus the choice of buying more high speed data any time they like.
Sprint’s prepaid subsidiary, Boost Mobile, has just debuted new data plans. And they are generating buzz lately because of their rather unique structure. Dubbed as “Growing Data” plans, Boost Mobile’s latest offering add 500 megabytes of data to the customer’s account each time he completed three on-time payments.
