Cricket Wireless adds a new unlimited tier for $70 a month; switch from T-Mobile and get $100 bill credit

Cricket Wireless adds unlimited tier for $70 a month; switch from T-Mobile and get $100 bill credit
AT&T's pre-paid Cricket Wireless subsidiary is adding a new unlimited wireless tier. For $70 a month ($65 if auto pay is used), subscribers receive unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE service. And that price includes all taxes and applicable fees. The new plan is available starting today. The pre-paid carrier says that it has a larger 4G LTE pipeline than T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Sprint or Boost.

While there will be no throttling of data with the new plan, AT&T did say that it might apply "reasonable network management practices" to the unlimited tier at some point in the future. The $70 plan has a data speed that currently tops out at 8Mbps.

Cricket is aiming at T-Mobile with this new plan. It calls T-Mobile's prices "Uncool," noting that those on the carrier's unlimited Simple Choice plan are paying $25 a month more that Cricket's unlimited customers. In addition, those coming over to Cricket from T-Mobile will also get a $100 bill credit.

Recently, Cricket entered into a deal with Aaron's which brings the number of locations in the U.S. to 12,000. That means that you should be able to find a Cricket store near you.
