Cricket bumps $40 base plan from 1GB of data to 2.5GB

AT&T's prepaid carrier Cricket is increasing the data allotment for all of their plans without making any changes to the pricing. It's a bit of a shake-up, offering one of the best data packages among prepaid carriers.

Here's what's changed:

  • Basic: $40/month, previously 1GB, now 2.5GB
  • Smart: $50/month, previously 3GB, now 5GB
  • Pro $60/month, still 10GB

Where things get a little more crazy is the "Advanced" tier, which offers 20GB of data each month, and for a "limited time only" can be had for the same $60/month as the Pro plan. That is, however, so long as you purchase an LTE-capable device to go with that plan.

All plans included unlimited voice and texts, and all but the $40 Basic plan also include unlimited international texting. You can check out Cricket's revised plans right here.
