Cricket Offering Five Lines for $100
Cricket Wireless, which is owned by AT&T, today announced a new incentive to win over T-Mobile and other customers. Cricket is offering five lines for $100 per month. The plan includes one more line than T-Mobile's current promotion (four lines for $100). Cricket said, "People can sign up for the five lines for $100 up until January 2, and enjoy the promotion long after." It didn't provide an actual end date. Each line gets unlimited talk/text and 500MB of data. The pricing is based on five lines of service with an eligible $40 base plan. Each successive line gains a greater discount. For example, line two receives a $10 monthly discount; line three receives a $20 monthly discount; line four receives a $30 monthly discount; and line five receives a $40 monthly discount. The promotion is available to new and existing customers (in good standing, with two eligible lines of service). Accounts with multiple lines will automatically be enrolled into the new promotion. The $100 monthly cost includes all taxes and fees.

This does not beat T-mobile.
With T-mobile with 4 lines or more (Up to 10) each user gets 2.5GB until 2016. It's only $110 for Tmobile... How much would 2.5GB cost on Cricket?
Cricket only gives you 500MB/line. It costs $10/line more for just making it 1.5GB.
5 Lines 1.5gb each on Cricket is $160.... HMMMMMM Which is better?
