On Friday, January 30, Cricket Wireless unveiled a few tweaks to its existing plans and also unveiled a brand new, limited time high-speed plan with a few more gigabytes of data per month.
The changes take effect today and reflect alterations to the Basic and Smart plans. For the former, what was previously only 1GB of data per month has now been bumped up to 2.5GB per month for just $35 per month (after a $5 Auto Pay credit is applied). For the latter, Cricket’s Smart Plan now offers 5GB per month for $45 (after the $5 Auto Pay credit), up from the previous 3GB per month. Cricket’s 10GB Pro Plan is staying the same, but if you need a bit more data per month than that, Cricket’s got you covered with a limited time plan.
The new plan is called the Advanced Plan, and Cricket says that it’s going to be sticking around only for a “limited time.” When availability might end, though, isn’t said. The plan offers up 20GB of high-speed data per month, for $55 per month (after the $5 Auto Pay credit).
For anyone looking to switch over to Cricket, the prepaid carrier is now offering a free month of service to those who make the jump. If you do switch, you’ll need to choose either the Smart, Pro or Advanced plans, and you’ll also need to complete two months of service before you’ll get a free month.
What do you think of Cricket’s new pricing and Advanced Plan?
