Cricket adds more data to its pre-paid plans

Cricket adds more data to its pre-paid plans
The latest trend for pre-paid carriers is to increase the amount of data they offer with their plans. Boost recently doubled the amount of data it offers and MetroPCS also increased the data by 500MB on its plans. Cricket will be joining this group on September 13th, for a limited time only. The Basic Plan, which is $40 a month, ($35 with Auto Pay) will now offer you unlimited talk, unlimited text and 1GB of high speed data, up from the 500MB that this plan usually comes with.

The next tier is the Smart Plan, which costs $50 monthly ($45 using Auto Pay) and will provide users with unlimited talk, unlimited text and 3GB of high speed data. That is up from the 2.5GB of high speed data that this plan usually offers. Lastly, Cricket's Pro Plan will give you unlimited talk, text, and a whopping 10GB of data, double the 5GB normally dispersed with this tier. The Pro Plan will run you $60, or $55 with Auto Pay. Once you consume your high speed data allowance on any of these plans, your speed is throttled to a snail-like 128Kbps. 

If you're an existing Cricket customer who wants to take advantage of the higher data amount offered for your tier, all you need to do is...nothing! Your current plan will automatically include the higher amount of data offered. Cricket also has its $100 switcher bill credit available to T-Mobile or MetroPCS customers who port a number over to Cricket, and purchase or activate a new line of service with the carrier. That promotion expires on October 19th.
