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.
