Page Plus Cellular today announced that it is giving more monthly data access to its customers without changing the prices of its plans. The 55 plan now includes unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of data per month, doubled from 500MB, for $55. The Unlimited Talk & Text plan now includes unlimited talk, text, and 100MB of data per month, improved from 20MB, for $39.95 per month. Both plans are pre-paid and don't require contracts.
This really isn't impressive news, and if I was Page Plus I wouldn't have spent the money on a press release, since there are other MVNO's offering better plans. For the same $55 a month, PlatinumTel gives 2GB of data. And Simple Mobile gives you unlimited everything for $40. I'm sure people will buy this plan, but it's barely competitive, and definitely not newsworthy.....just sayin'
Best prepaid CDMA MVNO there is available. I wish they would jump on the International discount calling bandwagon as well. They would pick up tons of new subscribers as the GSM competitors have done already.
